Freeskiing World Tour organizers seek volunteers

Get behind the scenes at the Freeskiing World Tour stop in Revelstoke Jan 4–9 by volunteering.

The Freeskiing World Tour comes to Revelstoke January 4–9, and the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce is offering you the chance to get behind the scenes at on- and off-mountain events. They’re seeking volunteers to help coordinate the third annual event.

Here’s excerpts from a media release from the Revelstoke event coordinator Meghan Tabor:

This January, RMR and the Chamber of Commerce will once again be hosting the Canadian Freeskiing Championships as part of the Freeskiing World Tour. Now in its fourteenth year, the Freeskiing World Tour 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.

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. , RMR is excited about hosting the event again in 2012 (January 4-9).

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.  We are looking for volunteers to fill a variety of positions, both on and off the mountain.  If you are interested in helping out, please come to an information session on Tuesday (November 29, 2011) at 7:00 p.m. in Mackenzie’s Restaurant – located in the Powder Springs, behind the Last Drop.  If you have any questions, please email us at
