January 23, 2014, Big White (ISN) – The competitive Para-snowboard season continues this week with two World Cups in Big White, Canada. This is the last chance for Para-snowboard athletes to qualify for the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Games. Canadian John Leslie is coming off two third place finishes in Copper, Colorado last weekend.

In addition, the Canadian Paralympic Para-snowboard team will be announced this Sunday, January 26th. The announcement will take place immediately following the awards ceremony at Big White Ski Resort.

Lastly, our snowboardcross and freestyle athletes will be competing in this years’ Winter X Games. Some key members of our freestyle team will be competing in both Slopestyle and Big Air competitions. This event will allow our Canadian athletes to appropriately gauge their competition heading into the Sochi Olympic Winter Games.
