On March 4, 2006, the Nokia Snowboard FIS World Cup stage was installed in Saint Petersburg for the first time. More than 100 athletes from 17 countries took part in the Big Air competitions. JSA Stage Company installed a slide-ramp 30 meters high and 100 meters long on an open area near the Kirov Stadium, specifically for these competitions. This structure was built for the first time in the city on Neva. This was possible due to JSA’s good material base (Layher warehouse) and the experience gained from two events in 2002 and 2005 in Moscow. At that time, JSA was the only company that could handle such a task.
