If you are anything like us, then you'll be getting excited about the new season. Not only is it a new season of pure, unadulterated snow, but a season of ski and snowboard events that will turn your head inside out! There's a bucket load basically and today we're looking at purely because the rider line-ups have been announced.

Last year's competition was very hot-under-the-collar and this year is set to be similar. The announced riders are some pretty big names, across the board, and with the progression we had last year there's sure to be some insane tricks thrown down.

Here's the list:


1. Andreas Hatveit (NOR)

2. Benedikt Mayr (GER)

3. Elias Ambühl (SUI)

4. Henrik Harlaut (SWE)

5. Jacob Wester (SWE)

6. Jon Olsson (SWE)

7. Josiah Wells (NZL)

8. Laurent Favre (FRA)

9. Nicolas Vuignier (SUI)

10. Paddy Graham (GBR)

12. Russell Henshaw (AUS)

13. Sammy Carlson (USA)

14. Simon Dumont (USA)

15. TJ Schiller (CAN)

16. Tom Wallisch (USA)
