The first ever Tanner Hall Invitational will take place at Sierra-at-Tahoe on Saturday, March 30, 2013. The event will be streamed live online and will feature some of the best and most stylish riders in the world battling it out for a big cash prize.
Confirmed skiers include Tanner Hall, Henrik Harlaut, Phil Casabon, Sammy Carlson, Torin Yater-Wallace, Mike Hornbeck, Ahmet Dadali, Duncan Adams and more.
Snow Park Technologies (the creators of the Winter X-Games and Dew Tour courses) will build a “tombstone” feature – a quarter pipe in between two hip jumps. The contest will be in jam format with an hour and 15 minutes on the hip and another hour and 15 minutes on the quarter pipe. Competitors will also be acting as judges.
Tanner Hall hopes to make this unique contest an annual event that is focused on stylish and progressive skiing and having fun.
“Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort is extremely excited to partner with Tanner Hall to hold the first ever Tanner Hall Invitational,” said Steven Hemphill, Communications Manager for Sierra-at-Tahoe. “After SPT [Snow Park Technologies] approached us with the idea, we jumped at the opportunity to hold an event for the world’s best skiers. The line-up of riders is incredible and we are anxious to give them a feature that will progress skiing and offer a different format than the traditional slopestyle contest.”
