Alyeska Resort Hosts World Comp Qualifier On The North Face


March 24, 2010 (Girdwood, Alaska) – Alyeska Resort has successfully hosted the qualifying run of the Alyeska World Comp. Over fifty competitors in alpine, telemark and snowboard divisions faced off on Alyeska’s North Face today. Over a foot of new snow and partly cloudy weather created great conditions for the qualifying run. The qualifier was mandatory for skiers or snowboarders who had not placed in top finishing spots at the previous competitions in the series at either Alpine Meadows or Crested Butte.


“It was a great first day, with the Junior Alpine Men showing some of the strongest skiing in the venue,” said head judge Nate Greenburg, “Everything went well and we look forward to seeing competitors step it up on the Headwall and Alyeska’s bigger terrain in the next few days of the competition.”

Tomorrow’s venue for the competition, weather permitting, will be on the Headwall, and each competitor will get one run.  The competition is scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m.
