Boston prepares to host Feb. 11-12 International Ski Federation World Cup and U.S. Grand Prix tour Competition

JACKSON, Wyo. (February 10, 2016) – Fenway Sports Management (FSM) and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) announced today the Polartec Big Air at Fenway, an officially sanctioned U.S. Grand Prix Tour competition, featuring the world’s top skiers and snowboarders, taking place at Fenway Park in Boston on February 11-12.

The Boston-themed line-up will include performances by Bad Rabbits, who will take the stage following the big air snowboarding finals on Thursday, February 11 and American Authors, who will perform at the conclusion of the skiing finals on Friday, February 12. DJ Master Millions will perform at the opening of Big Air each night, setting the tone as the world’s top skiers and snowboarders gear up to give their best runs, show off incredible tricks and thrill the crowd as they compete in this unique setting at the iconic home of the Boston Red Sox.

Tickets, which are on sale now at redsox.com/bigair, include admittance to both the athletic competition and entertainment portions of the events on the selected day.

An alt-rock outfit based in Brooklyn, American Authors’ breakout hit song “Best Day of My Life” and follow-up singles “Pride” and “Go Big or Go Home” were built on a magnetic sense of optimism that’s carried the band from their formation at Boston’s Berklee College of Music to their down-and-out early years in Brooklyn to their current status as an internationally touring band on an ever-growing rise.

Bad Rabbits, a Boston-based group draws on their multi-cultural makeup and fuse futuristic R&B with post-rock to create a distinct sound. Their intense live shows solidified an impressive and devout following as they shared the stage with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, PassionPit, Deftones, Travie McCoy, T-Pain, GlassJaw, Common and John Legend and played the Vans Warped Tour.

Additionally, Teton Gravity Research will be premiering its new ski and snowboard film, The Sammy C Project, on the event video boards at Fenway Park on Friday, February 12. The film shares two years of unthinkable freestyle skiing in locations such as Mt. Hood, Alaska, Michigan’s Copper Peak and beyond. The showing will begin at 6:30 p.m., prior to the freeskiing big air final.

Polartec Big Air at Fenway will feature the world’s top skiers and snowboarders competing on a 140-foot high snow ramp, nearly four-times the height of Fenway’s famed Green Monster. U.S. Olympic slopestyle skiing gold medalist Joss Christensen, slopestyle snowboarding Olympic champion Sage Kotsenburg and Olympian Ty Walker are among the elite group of Olympians and Olympic hopefuls expected to participate.

Big air events consist of snowboarders and skiers competing with a single trick off a ramp similar to those seen on slopestyle courses. Men’s and women’s big air snowboarding will debut at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeong Chang, South Korea. Please visit redsox.com/bigair for further information on Polartec Big Air, including tickets and schedules.
