SNOWMASS, CO. – The World Pro Ski Tour has returned for its first full season of racing and its first western event in more than 20 years with the Rocky Mountain Pro Ski Classic at Snowmass, Colorado, on March 9 and 10, 2018.

The event will feature the professional dual alpine ski race format and the field includes Olympian Nolan Kasper fresh back from the games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Kasper won the first event of the 2018 World Pro Ski Tour at Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, and will be challenged by 30-plus other World Cup and NCAA competitors from across the country and around the world. The dual side-by-side course will be set up on the Blue Grouse Trail.

The event will be free and open to the public, and televised on CBS Sports Network, the 24-hour home of CBS Sports, which is available nationally, on April 8 at 2:30 p.m. ET. The other two events will also air on CBS Sports Network on April 1 at 1 p.m. ET for The White Mountain Dual Challenge at Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, and April 15 at 12:30 p.m. ET for the Visit Maine Pro Ski Championship at Sunday River, Maine.

“We are thrilled to be bringing the Pro Tour to Snowmass,” said Ed Rogers president of the World Pro Ski Tour. “The Aspen area has an incredible legacy of professional dual ski racing and this event will kick off a new chapter of that story.”
The first stop on the tour was Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, on Feb. 8 through 10, and the final event will be at Sunday River, Maine, on March 29 to 31. The World Pro Ski Tour is supported by premier sponsors Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Maine Office of Tourism and Greenhead Lobster, along with many other tour partners.
