Final Preparation for 2015 FIS Snowboard World Cup in Quebec City and Stoneham
(ISN) – Vancouver, British Columbia – Canada’s slopestyle and big air athletes attended one last progression camp in Whistler Blackcomb last week in preparation for the 2015 FIS Snowboard World Cup in Quebec City and Stoneham, the only domestic freestyle World Cup of the year.
Young guns Tyler Nicholson, Darcy Sharpe, Mikey Ciccarelli and Jenna Blasman are ecstatic to compete in front of a home crowd at Stoneham. They will lead the pack as a number of Canada’s best freestyle athletes compete in slopestyle and big air.
It’s been a breakout year for the team; Tyler Nicholson started the season with a standout podium performance at Dew Tour, Mikey Ciccarelli finished 6th at World Championships and Jenna Blasman utilized her national team jump camps to catapult her way into a fifth place finish at World Championships. This young and highly talented group will more than likely find themselves atop World Cup podiums in Quebec City.
