Quebec City has a long World Cup history.
Since 2009, the capital of the French-speaking province in eastern Canada has been hosting annually big air World Cup events downtown as co-host for the Stoneham World Cups only interrupted once when the FIS World Championships were held in town back in 2013.
As the previous years, the purpose-built mega ramp at Îlot Fleurie, which will once again be situated right in-between two highways close to the old colonial core which dates back to 1608, will play centre stage for the final big air action to wrap up the 2017-18 FIS Snowboard World Cup season as part of the famous Jamboree snow festival.

After a successful opener to the Big Air World Cup season we are already expecting some great action at the very last event of the season as it will be something special.
Julia Marino (USA) and Sebastien Toutant (CAN) have claimed victory in the penultimate slopestyle World Cup event of the 2016-17 season which was staged as part of the 2017 Jamboree presented by Vidéotron Mobile in the Stoneham Mountain Resort, Canada.
Anna Gasser (AUT) and Mark McMorris (CAN) have claimed victory in the 2016-17 snowboard freestyle World Cup season's sixth and final big air event which was staged as part of the 2017 Jamboree presented by Vidéotron Mobile on Ilot Fleurie in downtown Quebec City, Canada today.
While the Austrian rider claims her career's first titles, the race for the Crystal Globe is as close as it could get over on the men's side.
Quebec City has been a host to many big events already. But with the 12th edition of the Jamboree around the corner things get ones again special.
The shaping crew in Stoneham Mountain, just some 20 minutes outside of Quebec City and home of the slopestyle events of this season's Quebec World Cup stop, are currently giving the finishing touches to course's features.
