Alyeska Chugach Open Postponed, New Dates Announced


Alyeska Resort has announced the Chugach Open will be postponed until March 24 to 27, 2011, one week later than the originally scheduled dates, in anticipation of forecasted precipitation in upcoming week. Due to an unusually low amount of snowfall this ski season, conditions are not optimal for national-caliber big mountain competition.

“Our goal for the Chugach Open is to open up big mountain faces for top athletes to showcase their skills” said Di Hibbner, ski area general manager, “The resort cannot offer a big mountain venue at this time, so the decision was made to postpone the competition in the hope that enough new snow will fall this week so we can get the venue in shape.”

The Chugach Open will include three days of competition, open to Alpine, snowboard and Telemark athletes. The top place men and women ski and snowboard finishers in the Alyeska Chugach Open will receive entry to the invitation-only World Freeriding Championships (WFC) scheduled in Valdez, Alaska which includes The World Extreme Skiing Championships and King of the Hill competitions. In addition to the entries to the championships in Valdez, there are over $13,000 in cash and prizes.
