Winter Whip 2018 Results

If you were are one of the unlucky few who missed the live Winter Whip 2018 Results announcement then you’ve come to the right place. You’d think by now we’ve run out of ideas in making this event memorable. Guess again as anyone in attendance could vouch and say that the 5th edition was by far the best yet. It’s pretty safe to say that this event has made a name for itself in the international circuit. We saw world-class local and international Snowboarders and Skiers participate in the Slopestyle competition.

Now That’s What I Call a Slick Slopestyle Course

If you’re wondering who designed the 2018 Slopestyle course then your long quest for answers has come to an end. This year’s Slopestyle course was designed by the Afriski Mountain Resort’s Kapoko Park crew and included more features than ever before. The course provided fun and technical options for the competitors, allowing for progressive runs throughout the jam style contest.
