In mid-December, organizers of the annual Snowboard Jamboree held a press conference at the Parc de l'Îlot Fleurie to announce that the 6th Big Air Competition will have women participate in the competition for the first time. Big Air, a world-class snowboard event, will take place in that very place at the foot of the Dufferin-Montmorency autoroute.
