Big-air contest right at the base of Blackcomb, in the heart of the village. Big kicker, big crowds, live-music, dueling DJ's, dual fire-balls in the gap...usually the primo event at the 10 day party that closes out the winter season up there.
It's the single biggest draw of the 10 day festival, and has been a pretty good venue for up and comers and the big names to throw down at the end of the season. Evidently "Sue" decided that it made sense to cancel the contest late this winter in order to "shake things up." IMO you "shake things up" by making the premier event even better, not by canceling it long after most people have locked in their vacation plans.
Sucks big-time for would be spectators - must be twice as lame for would be competitors, particularly locals.
Think Sue made a bad call on this one? The public messageboard is here and Sue, whatever her faults as an organizer is, to her credit, responding to input there.
