How it works?
For those who don't know the Empire Games yet, here's how it works: A race on a funky an unique course built by the best snowpark building company there is : Today’s Parks. Three categories: Open, women and 15 and under. A random draw to determine which rider will choose his side of the track first and then a run followed by an elimination. With only three competitors left at the end, the first to cross the finish line will then be named winner of the 2020 Empire Games. The Key to success: Get to the finish line as fast as possible.
New this year
We are proud to announce that we added a bunch of new features for you at this year’s Games. First of all, the races will include 3 riders instead of 2, making it even more intense and crazy. The 2020 Empire Games also mark the addition of the Expression Session Rail Jam, an invitational shred session featuring some of the best snowboarders of the province. This will be one hell of a show. This year, we also got musical performances to close the night with Quebec legends such as Sans Pression and Alaclair Ensemble.CLICK HERE TO REGISTER →
