Due to the fact that conditions have been less than ideal at Blue Mountain, Ontario and beyond, and in order to maintain the integrity of The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series, the organizers have decided to cancel the event at Blue Mountain.
There is some good news though, as The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series will be hosting a halfpipe competition on January 14th and 15th at Whistler Blackcomb!

If you were registered for the Blue Mountain event and will not be able to attend the Whistler event please email Julia at: firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of everyone at The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series, we apologize for any inconvenience this causes and for relaying this to you with only two week's notice, but unfortunately Mother Nature did not deliver as expected.
We are looking forward to a great event in Whistler though, and are currently putting together the final details in regards to the event. Check out the schedule for the event below, and be sure to stay tuned to thenorthfaceppos.com and The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series' Facebook fan page for updates and information.
