Air and Style is the world's biggest and best straight jump snowboarding contest, as well as a one-day festival of music and entertainment. This year the competition is held at Munich's Olympiastadion.
A crowd of around 30,000 people make the atmosphere more like a football match than a snowboard competition. Huge TV walls screen the snowboarders as they fly down the runway towards the ramp, competing to outdo each other with the height and difficulty of their jumps.

The jumpers all have one eye on the landing and the other firmly fixed on the brand-new Audi shining in the distance. The car and prize money of US$100,000 ensure that everyone will be pushing to the limit.

To find out about the after-contest-party and the bands you wouldn't want to miss, please visit the Air and Style website.
