WINTER-X GAMES OSLO FEB 26TH 2016



It's time to get excited. This is a fantastic opportunity to capture the best ski and snowboard riders from around the world competing at the Oslo Winter X Games - all in one day. For the first time the Games are coming to Europe and after hosting the 2012 World Snowboard Championships, Oslo is going to be the winter sports capital of the world. 

Starting at 11:30am and finishing at around 7pm, this promises to be an awesome day of extreme snowsport action.

The SuperPipe competition takes place in the 'Vinterpark', 20 minutes north of Oslo, whilst the BigAir will be held in downtown Oslo. The Olympic sized Superpipe is a wall of ice c.7.2 metres high, 17.5 degrees in gradient and 160 metres in length. The riders achieve awesome speed and height whilst performing the most incredible manoeuvres.

The BigAir is a c.42 metre high ramp from which riders perform aerial tricks as well as aiming to achieve as much height and distance as possible.

The day starts at 10am when I will give a full photographic, technical and safety briefing, helping you to create the best action shots using the correct settings.  Here is the competition schedule :

11:30   Snowboard BigAir Round 1 Men
13:30   Ski BigAir Rounds 1 Men
15:30   Snowboard SuperPipe Final Women
17:30   Snowboard SuperPipe Final Men

The schedule provides the opportunity for you to shoot the action in both great daylight and then under the atmospheric floodlights - the best of both worlds.

This really is going to be an amazing day of full-on extreme snowsport action. Thanks to quick and easy budget flights ( London - Oslo from 31 return! ) and various hotel options, this course is very manageable. Travel around Oslo is also very easy. The course fee is 289 and includes entry into both the BigAir and SuperPipe competitions. Flights and accommodation are not included and there will also be a small extra local cost for either a taxi or metro ride between the two venues.

Places are going to be strictly limited so please contact me at info@sportsphotographyschool.co.uk to book your place.
