cr-forum-snake-session.jpgLadies and Gents, here’s yet again another brand organising its own AM Tour throughout Europe! This time it’s Forum Snowboards.

Forum Snowboards is proud to announce that for a fifth consecutive year, its Youngblood Series will bring grassroots-oriented, amateur snowboarding jams to several resorts throughout Europe from January through the end of March 2007.

After four years of running the most well-recognized amateur snowboarding contest series in the world, this season Forum has totally flipped the switch and is taking a much more laid-back, organic approach to its signature Youngblood Series.

For 2007, the biggest change is that there are no divisions and no classes. Therefore, at each event male and female riders of all ages and abilities will battle it out for Youngblood supremacy in a no-holds-barred, Snake Sessions contest format designed to mimic a typical day on the hill where it’s snake or be snaked. Additionally, Forum’s team of world-class riders will call all the shots on how the events run, ensuring no two are exactly the same. Each hosting rider will set the rules, select the terrain (superpipe, rail, quaterpipe, booter, etc) and serve as head judge.

All Forum Youngblood Snake Sessions are free to enter with registration taking place at host resorts the morning of each competition. To the victor go the spoils in the form of a grip of rad 2007 Forum gear as well as a coveted “check out” on Forum’s website. That’s right, 1st place finishers will get an exclusive interview accompanied by choice photos posted on Furthermore, male and female competitors 18 years of age and younger will vie for a lucrative spot on Forum’s prestigious Youngblood team.
