FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup Moves to Calgary

Next FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup event will take place in Calgary. A great opportunity to watch some of the world’s top freestyle skiers take to the slopes for Aerial and Mogul skiing. The Canada Post Freestyle Grand Prix at Canada Olympic Park, presented by Ernst & Young, is the 2nd Canadian stop on the 2010-2011 FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup Tour and will be held January 27-29, 2011 at WinSport Canada’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, Alberta.
The best Freestyle Skiers in the world return to Winsport Canada's Canada Olympic Park this January after 20 years. This will be the first FIS Freestyle World Cup in aerials and moguls on the new year - and one of the final qualification events for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Friday and Saturday night will be especially dramatic as back to back mogul events will be held under the lights; and Sunday afternoon will feature the thrills of aerials.
