“We are extremely excited to host this year’s The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series,” said Paul Pinchbeck, Director of Marketing at Blue Mountain Resorts Limited. “It’s an honour to host such a high calibre event, especially with the recent addition of freeskiing to the Olympic Games.
"I'm proud to be involved in this event as both head judge and AFP representative. Open events have an important history in our sport, allowing up and coming amateurs to compete alongside top level pros, and this is why the AFP is excited to get behind this particular series,” said Steele Spence, head judge and AFP general manager. “After a stellar first year, The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series has been elevated to a higher ranking competition, and has become a solid stepping stone for competitors to climb their way up the AFP World Ranking to eventually earn invitations to top level events."
