Vans is proud to announce the third Canadian edition of the Vans Hi-Standard Series in collaboration with Snowboard Canada. The event consists of an original big air format where riders are judged on individual style with no rotations over 720 allowed, rewarding creativity and self-expression, the Vans way.

From January 4th to March 15th, riders from Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec will have the chance to take part in a special type of competition, unlike other competitions in which riders compete against others, this time riders will be encouraged to compete against themselves and bring out their ultimate style. It’s pretty simple, the more style and trick variety you have, the more you get paid. Each stylish manoeuver will get you cash on the spot! Vans pro riders will be on location for each stop of the tour giving attendees the opportunity to hangout and ride with them.

A total of $14,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded during the Vans Hi-Standard Series that will also include the Van Doren Rail best trick segment. Registration will take place the morning of the event with a sign up fee of $10 that includes lunch and lift ticket.

The event will also include a Vans shoe customization contest on-site alongside a variety of activities for the whole family.
