When Shaun White was choosing the next location to park his 16 storey-high, 135 metre-long snow-covered ramp for his music and winter sports festival, Sydney was a no-brainer.

The greatest snowboarder in the world is bringing Air + Style to The Domain on August 3, 4 and 5, where 60 top male and female snowboarders and skiers will compete on 850 tonnes of snow supplied by Bells Pure Ice, while the likes of Flo Rida and Snow Patrol perform.

“Sydney is such a perfect place because down here everyone is so into athletics and sports, which supports snowboarding and skating, and there is also such a big music scene and fashion scene here,” White told Fairfax Media from Sydney, where he is on promotional duties ahead of the festival.

“It will be able to grow down here … plus Sydney is the only place in the world where I visited and I thought, ‘yeah, I could definitely live here.’ It’s my excuse to come here to hang and skate.”
