“JP Auclair Instrumental In Coalision’s Development Of The European Market�

MONTREAL, QUEBEC (August 2003) – Coalision announced this month the addition of J.P. Auclair to their international athlete team for Orage skiwear. In addition to Mike Nick, Iannick B and new comer, John Symms, J.P. will round out the International Team and work with Orage to transcend geographic boundaries once again, and lead the freeski movement throughout Europe.

J.P. Auclair is largely recognized as a pioneer in the freeski world both in the terrain parks and the backcountry. His long list of accomplishments and accolades as a leader within the sport, make him the ideal athlete to represent Orage as it enters its period of globalization. “I’m really stoked to be working with Orage,� says Auclair. “When I talked to a few people who work there I noticed that even though the company is getting bigger, they still run Orage like a small business. And that’s what I like. I’m looking forward to hanging out with Iannick B., my new teammate, and to work with the Orage crew on developing dope clothes.�

International Team & Event Manager, Jamie Brandon comments on the addition of JP Auclair, “JP is a living legend, and we’re extremely proud that he has chosen to become a part of our Team. “ “As is the case with every International Team athlete, JP will be much more than just an athlete, he’ll be involved in everything from product and ad campaign design, to European development strategy. Orage recognizes that JP has just as much to offer off the snow as he does on it, and we’ll give him the opportunity to showcase all of his talents. �
