Midwest Open registration has opened up online at http://www.cascademountain.com/calendar_more_info.php?id=227. MWO is on Saturday March 6th at Cascade Mountain. There is a big air comp during the day and then an evening rail jam held in the base area. It costs $25 for one event or $15 for a single event. The main sponsors are Cacade Mountain and Nordica with a lot of partial sponsors. I will get a list of all the sponsors up as soon as possible, but trust me the prize list will be pretty huge... their are boxes of products already rolling in. Registration is capped at 200 competitors. There are 5 divisions... 15 and under skiing, 15 and under snowboarding, 16+ skiing, 16+ snowboarding, and womens mixed. Last year we moved the big air hit to the Northwall and it as those of you who were there know it didn't work out too well. The jumps were about 45 and 55 feet but they were pretty flat and speed could have been better... granted the weather didn't help. We have made a lot of changes in the north park this year and we have a very large drop in and 3 big and steep shelves which really help you carry speed all the way to the headwall on the northwall which is where the jump will be built. We know what we need to do to improve the jumps and I will give you my word that it will be way better than last years setup. The rail jam will be sick as usual with probably 4-5 features set up and a whole bunch of spectators and music. There are always a bunch of vendors with next years gear and free shwag to give out. So even if you don't want to compete please come and check it out. Should be bigger and better than last year.
More info and updates to come.
