The NESCAFÉ CHAMPS is more than just the oldest snowboard competition in Europe; it's an ever evolving event which unifies snowboarding, music and urban art.
After 21 years of various affiliations, the CHAMPS is today part to the World Snowboard Tour on a 5 star level. Attracting the world elite and young stars through a unique qualification system, the CHAMPS is shaping the champions of tomorrow. Stars like Jane Korpi (FIN) and the current 4th of the World Snowboard Tour, Roope Tonteri (FIN) will come to Leysin this year.
Music has always played a very important role within the event and has become even more prominent since the creation of the PLACE TO BE, the concert and party location as well as après-ski in Leysin.
Urban Art was successfully added to complete the lifestyle experience for our guests. The energy and freestyle spirit of the Art and the Artists completes the triangle of self expression for the event.
These 3 elements combined together, Snowboard, Music and Urban art, has totally seduced the public, media and also the event’s main actors (Athletes, DJ’s, Bands and Artists).
