Sure to shake the industry is a team manager’s dream – the Men & Women TTR Brand Partner Top 5.

Already active on top snowboard sites such as www.onboardmag.com, www.snowforce.com& www.snowbroader.eu, any webmaster can sign up to receive the Top 5 of choice and display the most current information: the suspense grows as the days edge closer to the crowning of the TTR World Snowboard Tour Champions this month.

Catch all the essential information including cover shots, styles, languages printed, contacts and general idea of what these key media sources provide.
