Fernie Alpine Resort Ready To Rip It Up With Snickers Junior Freeski Competition (03-Feb-10)

Fernie, BC - February 3, 2010 - As a leader in the development

As a leader in the development of JR Freeski events and a strong supporter of youth involvement in the sport of skiing and snowboarding, Fernie Alpine Resort is proud to host the Snickers Junior Freeski Competition presented by Rossignol this weekend on Saturday February 6th & Sunday February 7th. This is a popular event for both competitors and spectators each season at Fernie Alpine Resort as everyone waits in anticipation to see how the talented 18 and under will rip it up in style on the unique terrain that Fernie is known for. 

Competitors will be judged based on 5 categories: control, technique, fluidity, aggressiveness, and line of choice. Age categories for the event include 7-11, 12-15, and 16-18 years of age for both boys and girls. Athletes are competing for their share of product from Rossignol and other sponsors. Competitors will warm up Saturday in the qualifying runs for Sunday's finals and award ceremony.  PLEASE NOTE: Both the competition and waiting list is FULL.

Spectators are welcome to come out and watch these amazing, up and coming athletes in the sport. Access for spectators will be designated at the finish area and the exact location will be determined closer to the competition. Spectators are required to have a valid lift ticket or 2009-10 season pass.
