The 2018 Olympic Winter Games

It’s true, the Olympic Games are not really an activity that requires going outside, but it would be a crime not to mention this epic event on our list. After all, it only happens every 4 years. And it’s a damn good way to enjoy the winter from the comfort of your home.

Broadcast throughout the month of February, the Olympic Games are also a great way to get motivated to go riding. This year, watch Empire Rider Seb Toots and the rest of the Canadian Snowboard Team perform live from Pyeongchang from February 10 to 24 on Radio Canada!

The Snowboard Big Air World Cup at the Jamboree Festival

A must-attend snowboard festival since 2005, the Jamboree hosts the annual FIS Snowboard World Cup, which will be celebrating its 19th edition this year, from the 22nd to the 25th of March 2018. Sanctioned by Canada Snowboard and Freestyle Canada, the Jamboree will host the finals of the FIS Big Air World Cup in the heart of Quebec City, in the St-Roch neighborhood.

If you are from the Quebec City area, it's a "no brainer" to attend the show and festivities.

See you in Quebec City for this epic snowboard event!
