Information

Enjoy a fun-filled four days of snow-sports action and entertainment, with the main slopestyle competition taking place on Saturday 24 July.

WHO IT’S FOR:

The Winter Whip snowboard and ski competition runs as a jam format, slopestyle contest, which has received great feedback from the competitors. The format is geared towards excitement for the crowds watching from the Afriski slopes, the Cooler Box après-ski area or Gondola Cafe.

Engaging and fun activations, mini-events and areas have been planned by the event’s official partners and will be something to look out for throughout the festival.

Red Bull will be on hand, once again, to provide music and a great atmosphere on the slopes. In addition, some of South Africa’s most established and loved bands/DJs will be performing at this year’s after-party on the night of the event at the Gondola Café at Afriski. Zappa will also be involved in this year’s entertainment, creating good vibes at the Cooler Box après-ski area and Gondola Café throughout the weekend, as well as “party in the snow” and the after-party.
