The project

Empire CITY TROOPERS, presented by FIDO and Monster Energy is a urban snowboard competition and the longest slopestyle in Canada. More than 18,000 people came to watch the second edition of the event on December 5th on St-Denis, downtown Montreal!

The experience

“Transporting that mountain spirit to the city really has a way of democratizing snowboarding. That makes Empire City Troopers much more than a competition, it’s a unique opportunity to discover and rediscover a certain type of discipline”, says Micah Desforges, President of Tribu Expérientiel, the event’s producer. “Quebec is an international platform for street snowboarding, so it’s an important venue for snowboarders from here and elsewhere to come to Montreal and do their best. This is especially significant since the event takes place in an authentic and friendly atmosphere that is great for the athletes and the public at large. It’s a great happening!”
