In order to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, it has been decided that the Snowboard Masters
3rd Games (scheduled for April 3 to April 5) will be canceled.
Just as the snow conditions we had been worrying about had begun to improve
and the team had been moving forward to accept entries beginning in early March,
the Japanese government announced on February 26 that all major sporting and entertainment events were to be placed on hold,
delayed for the next two weeks, or otherwise drastically scaled down. This direction extended not only to soccer matches and golf tournaments,
but to other major sporting events and concerts as well.
After careful deliberation, the organization committee determined that it was in the public’s best interest to cancel the event,
in order to prevent the spread of the virus.
We understand that this news comes as a disappointment to many of you, and we offer our sincerest apologies
and ask for your understanding at this difficult time.
We hope to be back better than ever as of next year,
so please look forward to the next Snowboard Masters.
