This weekend the centre will stage a snowboard contest to mark the opening of the season with 1000CHF up as prize money in each category (men and women, under 16s and over 16s).

There will be a party atmosphere in the park during the day followed by a prize giving at the chalet Budokan, Les Diablerets, at 6pm followed by a party at the local club.  To take part you must register at the Col du Pillon desk before 10am on the Saturday 1st of November.  Participation costs 70 CHF for adults and 40 CHF for children. 

Currently, the Dôme ski lift at Glacier 3000 is open and parts of the Snow Park are available to skiers and snowboarders. Depending on snow conditions, the rest of the 10 installations and 25 km of ski runs will be made available.  The Snow Park is also open with several Lines (small, medium, large) with tables and rails, as well as the Big Mama is also ready for use.

The competition course layout will consist of two lines.   Line 1 will feature a mix of rails and kickers in a row (not too big, not too small) and Line 2 a mix of rails and kickers (medium size).
