Think Barcelona and you envision Tapas, dancing ’til 5 AM and um, warm weather. But just as London was able to host a Big Air competition and snow show, the Spanish party city is following suit.

This weekend (November 7 and 8) the the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium will host the first on-snow snowboarding and ski event in Barcelona, and the competition will be first-class. It’s a continuing stop on the LG FIS Snowboard World Cup tour, with an extra Big Air event for the skiers. 

Athletes will rocket off a 35-foot jump, and fans can enjoy live music, food and additional ‘festivities’ Barcelona is famous for.
