Strap your snowboards! The Empire Games are coming back with a bang this year bringing you a new and innovative concept, completely unreal courses, unusual challenges, but above all, tons of fun for everyone at a particularly low cost of $0.
Presented by Monster Energy and Burton and in collaboration with Oakley and Volcom, the Empire games 2017 will be a real unique experience. If you are part of those who have already entered snowboard competitions, we assure you that Empire Games are something you have never seen or experienced before. In fact, no matter if you are a professional or an amateur, you will be served in pleasure, we guarantee you.
How it works?
For those who don't know the Empire Games yet, here's how it works: A one on one race on a funky mirror course, three categories: Open, women and 15 and under, a random draw to determine which rider will choose his side of the track first and then a run. With only two competitors left at the end, the first to cross the finish line will then be named winner of the Empire Games.
More details about the courses coming soon.
In addition to our one of a kind concept, the events are free and accessible for everyone. You don't have to be a pro to enter the contest, all you need is a bit a courage and a lot of determination! The snowboarders who will be able to «beat the Games» will even go home with considerable amount of money. Yes, we have 2000$ plus a bunch of prizes from our sponsors to give away this year.
