FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup Moves to Canada

Next FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup event will take place in the belle province Saturday and Sunday at Ski Mont Gabriel. Skiers will compete in two events: Dual Moguls and Aerials.
The Aerial course at Ski Mont Gabriel was built in 2006 prior to the 2006-2007 ski season. This course is perfect for athletes and spectators because of the drive-in, drive-out nature and easy accessibility of the course. The course is homologated by FIS and meets the FIS' rigorous specifications for international freestyle skiing competition.
The Canadian Aerials Development Team and the Quebec Provincial Aerial team have regularly used the Ski Mont Gabriel Aerial site for training.
Canadian Freestyle Ski Association CEO Peter Judge said, "Dual Moguls are particularly well-suited to the Gabriel course, which isn’t as steep as some of the others on the circuit. I expect that we will see some really great action because the athletes tend to ski a little faster and jump a little higher in duals".
