Revelstoke, British Columbia - The finals of the Subaru Canadian Freeskiing Championships went off in grand fashion today at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Twenty men and seven women were flown to the top of Mac Face in a Bell 105 provided by Selikirk Tangiers Heli Skiing. Mac Face, which is right at the edge of the resort boundary is a steep technical face that proved challenging for the finals competitors as well as Revelstoke’s Professional Ski Patrol.

While the day one competition was happening in North Bowl on Sunday, the Patrollers were busy heli bombing Mac Face, with little results. Today the patrollers were the first ones dropped at the top of the run and while doing ski cuts to test the snow pack they triggered several significant slides. Due to this the helicopter was sent to pick up explosives so the patrol could throw hand charges into the venue to ensure its safety for the competition. This pushed the competition back an hour but safety is always the first thing in the minds of event organizers and the ski patrol. “A short delay is a small price to pay to ensure our competitors safety” remarked Event Director Bryan Barlow. Once the venue was cleared by the ski patrol, the women were the first to get their shot at Mac Face.
