Nordic Shreddage: Top Global Snowboarders Collide at the Oakley Arctic Challenge - Feb. 18 Kick-Off


It was an epic Winter X Games 15 in Aspen late January.

On the heels of Oakley Star Torstein Horgmo throwing down the first-ever triple cork in Winter X history to grab the Gold in Big Air, Torstein, along with some of the top riders on the Planet, are colliding in Oslo, Norway…starting today. All for the annual Oakley Arctic Challenge – originally introduced and owned by O Snowboard Legend Terje Håkonsen

From Oakley’s young, upcoming rippers like Mark McMorris and Seb Toutant – to Sage Kotsenburg, who was the first ever to land a cab 1440 double cork in a contest (Air & Style in Innsbruck) – this is sure to be one rockin’ event featuring the gnarliest shreddage on Earth.
