Ticket to Ride
The Burton Global Open Series is also part of the Ticket To Ride (TTR) World Snowboard Tour that gives points to riders based on their results at participating TTR competitions in order to crown a TTR World Champion. Created by world-renowned snowboarder and Burton Global Team rider Terje Haakonsen as an alternative way to rank riders, the 2006/2007 Tour is without question the largest culmination of independent freestyle snowboarding events under one common tour organization. Burton is stoked to support the TTR with the Global Opens, bringing five quality events and a tremendous cash purse to riders participating in the TTR.

Chamonix is a year-round destination thanks to its fantastic environment and major attractions such as the Aiguille du Midi cablecar (3842) or the red cog-wheel train of Montenvers which climbs to the famous « Mer de Glace ».
A resort where there is something for everyone, Chamonix is a wonderfull destination, whether during the winter season or summer.
Chamonix valley is located at the foot of the Mont-Blanc, Europe's highest summit at 4810 m. Registered on the world heritage list, Chamonix, the birthplace of mountaineering, is considered the grand old lady of alpine resort.
90% of the ski areas are located above 2000 m, making Chamonix a « guaranteed-snow » resort. The ski terrain is divided into three areas all linked by an efficient shuttle bus service and a panoramic sightseeing train (free with Guest Card or Ski Pass). The world famous Grands Montets is considered the Mecca for skiers, snowboarders and freeriders but there are many different possibilities available for skiers of all levels throughout the resort.
During the last two years, Familiebakken has opened up the last Saturday in October. Even this year we are very optimistic that we can provide ski enthusiasts with snow in late October. If this will become a reality, we are very depended upon the weather conditions. In order to start producing artificial snow, we need 4-5 consecutive nights with temperatures below freezing point.
The top slopes as well as the slopes on the "Vestsiden" (West side) will open as soon as the snow conditions allow it. The lower part of the downhill slope will as usual open up December 25th.
The depths of snow middlestation: 20 cm
The depths of snow at the bottom: 15 cm
Last snowfall: 31.10.06 - 20 cm

Mt. Balwang's Deungsan Road, the trees appear as if they are almost human, living beings just like us. With so many specimens of trees in this mountain, you will probably find a tree that resembles you.
At the peak of Mt. Balwang, the first thing that you will notice is a Swiss-style building called Dragon Peak. Behind that lies the Sky Garden. Both of these structures have become another enjoyable theme of Mt. Balwang.
You will find a coffee shop with a traditional Swiss atmosphere. There is a Korean restaurant and a steak house on the first floor. On the second floor, you will find a western-style restaurant famous for their spaghetti. It is almost a requirement to enjoy a cup of coffee while you soak in the nature while youre here.
