Freeskiing World Tour seeks volunteers

The Freeskiing World Tour (FWT) is seeking volunteers to help stage the Canadian Freeskiing Championships at Revelstoke Mountain Resort in January.

“We are looking for volunteers to fill a variety of positions, both on and off the mountain,” RMR’s FWT coordinator Meghan Tabor said in an statement. “If you are interested in helping out, please come to an information session this Thursday, November 25, at 7 pm in Mackenzie’s Restaurant, located in the Powder Springs, behind the Last Drop.

Now in its thirteenth year, the FWT is the largest and longest-running competitive big mountain freeskiing tour in the history of the sport, featuring athletes from around the world and over $100,000 in prize money. Competitive freeskiing was born from the idea and concept of showcasing skiing in its fundamental nature.  Since its inception 17 years ago, it has become the first love of most adrenaline seekers’ hearts.  The sport is continuing to gain momentum and grow in popularity; as athlete interest increases, along with sponsorship and media coverage.

On an international level, the Freeskiing World Tour provides a platform to showcase some of the mountain’s most spectacular terrain; including high alpine bowls, chutes, cliffs and gladed features that push even the most veteran freeskiers to their limit. Following the successful execution of the Canadian Freeskiing Championships in January 2010, the statement said RMR is excited about hosting the event again this year (January 5-10, 2011) with the opportunity to gain further exposure of North America’s newest and most dynamic mountain community.

“Local involvement and initiative will be a key factor for community engagement, as the world’s best come to Revelstoke to grace our slopes and streets,” the statement said.
