Ed Rogers, president of the World Pro Ski Tour, said, “This event was just what we needed to continue our growth into one of the premier winter sports properties in the world. Our exceptional athletes provide the stunning competition and return for our sponsors that will definitely give us the value to host a full tour in the coming winter.”
WORLD PRO SKI TOUR TO HOST THREE EVENT SCHEDULE AIRING ON CBS SPORTS NETWORK
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 7, 2017
Portland, Maine: The World Pro Ski Tour will host three events in the 2018 winter season at Waterville Valley, NH, Sunday River, ME, and a to be announced resort. These events will be one of the only opportunities to witness a field of Olympians, national champions and NCAA champions in the US as they face off side-by-side in dual slalom action. The White Mountain Dual Challenge at Waterville Valley will be held February 8-10 and the Visit Maine Pro Ski Championships at Sunday River will conclude the World Pro Ski Tour schedule March 29-31.
CBS Sports Network will again serve as the television partner for the World Pro Ski Tour.
“We are thrilled to expand the World Pro Ski Tour schedule to three events this winter to create more opportunity for ski racers from across the globe. The American ski community is craving more events to see their idols go head to head in dual slalom, the most exciting alpine race format that will also make its debut in the South Korea Olympics,” said Ed Rogers, President of the World Pro Ski Tour. “Our official partners Maine Office of Tourism, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Greenhead Lobster are making it possible to grow from a Sunday River event to Waterville Valley and other areas of the U.S.”
In March of 2017, the Pro Ski Challenge at Sunday River brought top American and Canadian athletes to Maine for the first pro tour dual race in the U.S. in almost twenty years. Top ranked American slalom skier and four-time national champion David Chodounsky defeated 2017 U.S. and Canadian national slalom champion AJ Ginnis to take the $10,000 grand prize at Sunday River. Top North American racers will face off with challengers from Europe, South America and other areas of the world in three events to become the 2018 World Pro Ski Tour champion.
“Sunday River is thrilled to welcome back the World Pro Ski Tour,” Dana Bullen, resort president and general manager for Sunday River, says. “Last year’s event brought back to life exciting, world-class competition in one of the most spectator friendly formats imaginable, and Sunday River is excited to be able to offer this great event to our guests once again.”
Waterville Valley Resort has been host to dozens of Alpine World Cups throughout the last 50 years, most recently in 1991. “The excitement of ski racing has always been a part of Waterville Valley Resort’s heritage and now to be in a period of significant growth and to be bringing back an event like the World Pro Ski Tour is really exciting,” said Tim Smith, President and General Manager of the New Hampshire ski area. “Personally, I am thrilled to be hosting this event here at Waterville Valley Resort because I grew up watching it with my dad and thinking it was so cool.”
