The Arctic Challenge for Snowboard Fans

Phoo: TAC

The Arctic Challenge (TAC) presents snowboard acrobatics at the highest level in Wyllerløypa! Every winter some of the some of the world’s best snowboarders meet to compete in slopestyle in Oslo.

Peetu Piiroinen, Matt Ladley, Iouri Podladtchikov and many more top riders have confirmed their participation. 

The Arctic Challenge combines the fundamental elements of snowboarding: competition, games and adventure. 

Starting out as a small pilot project back in 1999, TAC is now established as one of the greatest snowboard events in the world – although still keeping its independency. It is the only TTR 6 star event owned by a professional rider. 10 years after the first riders where invited to Norway by Terje Haakonsen, TAC  still experiments with formats, arenas, judging systems and TV production in an everlasting search for perfection. Accepting no compromise throughout his whole career, Terje still makes life hard for his crew by pushing the limits for possibilities in a snowboard event. 

And TAC certainly had its hard moments. From bankrupt sports agency firms to sleezy agents, from failing sponsor income to devastating weather, from fatal accidents to nightmare tv productions. But in between the trouble there have been unforgettable moments of great snowboarding and real life experiences.

You can use public transport to get to the arena. Take the tram or bus to Røa, and then bus 41 from Røa to Zinober. Bus schedules at www.ruter.no/en.
