RED Mountain has announced that The North Face will be the presenting sponsor for the Canadian Open Freesking Championships for the next three years. RED is recognized as one for the “top 5 Free ride” spots by the 2011/12 SBC Resort Guide, and is a hidden gem of BC’s Kootenay range.
The North Face athletes, Leah Evans and Mike Hopkins, honed their skills on the terrain at RED Mountain Resort. Combined with the abundant snow fall, the terrain is ideal for exploration and pushing personal limits.
“The North Face is thrilled to be partnered with such an inspiring resort,” stated Corey Stecker, Director of Marketing for The North Face Canada.
RED Mountain will also be having more juniors competitions this year, and the Canadian Open Freeskiing Championships will have two days of juniors, followed by the finals. It is a great opportunity for junior competitors to come out, bringing surge of enthusiasm and energy that will resonate throughout the contest.
The North Face Canadian OPEN Freeskiing Championships dates are:
Junior: January 11-14, 2012 (Jan 11 registration/inspection, Jan 12 qualifiers, Jan 13 qualifiers, Jan 14 finals & awards)
Senior, January 18-21, 2012 (Jan 18 registration/inspection, Jan 19 qualifiers, Jan 20 semi finals, Jan 21 finals, awards and Kokanee after party)
