The Lake Louise Ski Area will be hosting Canada’s top powder skiers where timing, style and technical ability are combined to form this unique team event in powder snow. Teams of two carve their way down Lake Louise’s steeps creating 8s in the untracked powder.
Never competed in a Powder 8 event before? The concept is simple; teams of two carve their way down Lake Louise’s steeps creating 8s in the untracked powder. The competition is judged on synchronization, dynamic/aggressive skiing and distance between team members. The tracks are judged on roundness, symmetry and fall line.
Note: This is an open event with no age categories. Snowboarders may enter but must be aware that they will be competing with skiers.
