For this year, the Jamboree ski and snowboard video contest (formerly the Stairsmasters) has been given a facelift and is now Unmarked presented by Vidéotron, an online contest with a focus on backcountry adventure and powder instead of urban action. Four crews of skiers ventured off the beaten path to showcase some of the best terrain Quebec has to offer and the edits are now submitted. All the Unmarked teams put their heart and soul into their films and there's going to be one hell of a party at the World Cup to celebrate. The videos of their adventures can be seen below but it's only right that they'll all be shown on the big screen as well. The screening goes down on Saturday 24th March between the World Cup Snowboard Final and the World Cup Ski Final (18:00-19:00). The teams will be there to discuss their experiences and the awards will also be dished out live on stage. Who's going to take the win? You'll need to be there to be one of the first to find out. Meanwhile, check out...
