The Winter Olympics are still a month away, but you won’t have to wait that long to catch some high-level competitive snowboarding. On Saturday, Shaun White (winner of about a zillion Olympic medals of his own) will host an event in Big Bear—just a short drive from L.A.
This event is a qualifier for athletes hoping to participate in White’s annual Air + Style Festival, which returns to L.A. on March 3 and 4, 2018, with a music program headlined by Phoenix and Zedd. And while tickets to the festival will run you $149, this weekend’s pre-show is totally free for the public to attend, including a concert by Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.
The 2018 Air + Style Qualifier takes place at Bear Mountain from 10:00 A.M. to 3:30 P.M. on Saturday, January 6.
