The Show is wide open. The events are capped at around 300 riders, with roughly 100 spots set aside for invited athletes and past participants. The other 200 spots are expected to sell out, as in past years.
The Show doesn't take itself too seriously. The opening event is the Grand Opening slopestyle at the base of the mountain, followed by Moguls Mash dual moguls elimination competition on the steep Catskinner run. Riders are also encouraged to make the most out of the on-hill jumps.
From there, The Show progresses to a completely new Boarderstyle/Stylecross event - a race down a snowboardcross course with special terrain park features built in, which riders can get extra points for hitting with style.
The next event is Dustin Craven's FUN Pipe Jam, which is basically a traditional superpipe contest with a twist - it's an elimination event, and every round the field will get smaller until there's just one man - and woman - left standing.
While it's grass roots, there's still over $33,000 in prizes up for grabs - a lot of it in actual cash that will get handed out to riders who step up or show the judges something special.
As well as the three main snowboard events, The Show also features four parties - The Sh*t Show opening party, The Late Show, Pub Night and The Sideshow.
