London FIS Snowboard World Cup Event Axed

By Community | September 13, 2012

London FIS Snowboard World Cup Big Air Competition event has been axed due to economic reasons.

The organisers say they hope to reinstate it for the following year. Funding seems like the most likely reason for this year’s cancellation.

The news was announced by a short statement on the FIS web site.

“This is to inform you that the FIS Snowboard World Cup Big Air competition, scheduled in London (GBR) on October 27th, 2012 has been cancelled due to economical reasons.

“The Organiser in cooperation with the British Ski and Snowboarding Federation has already indicated that it is their goal to organise the successful event as a FIS World Cup again from the 2013/2014 season onwards.”
