Špindlerův Mlýn in the Czech Republic is set to play host to the 2017 International Ski Federation (FIS) Junior Snowboard World Championships.

Competitors are due to compete in slopestyle and big air disciplines from tomorrow (March 30) to Saturday (April 1).

Action is due to begin tomorrow with the men's and women's slopestyle qualification rounds before the finals take centre stage on Friday (March 31).

Big air qualification and finals are then both set to take place on Saturday (April 1).

Australia's Tess Coady arrives at the Championships in fine form after she secured a sixth-place finish in the women's slopestyle event at the FIS World Cup leg in Špindlerův Mlýn last Saturday (March 25).

Coady extended her stay in the Czech Republic to represent Australia this weekend and she is confident of success when competing on the a familiar course.

"It will be good to ride an already familiar course again, as well as we have three more days to practice on it so plenty of time to change up and add things into my run," she said.

"I just want to put down a run in the first place and see where it goes from there."

Coady finished sixth in her World Cup debut at Mammoth Mountain in California in February.

Earlier this month she also competed at the World Championships in Sierra Nevada in Spain, where she placed 11th in the slopestyle and 21st in the big air competition.

Špindlerův Mlýn was one of the venues suggested in a joint Czech Republic and Poland bid to host the 2030 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Polish daily sports newspaper Przegląd Sportowy reported in January that of the 10 locations involved, six would be in the Czech Republic and four in Poland.

Špindlerův Mlýn joined Prague, put forward as the venue for the Closing Ceremony, Harrachov, Malá Úpa, Pec pod Sněžkou and Liberec as potential venues.

Neither the Czech Republic or Poland have hosted the Winter Olympics before.
