Quebec City, Tuesday, February 7, 2017

This February 9–12, Quebec City’s L’Îlot Fleurie and Stoneham Mountain Resort play host to the 12th edition of the Jamboree presented by Vidéotron Mobile. This year, a page is turning in the event’s history, with freestyle skiing joining snowboarding on the FIS Big Air and Slopestyle World Cup competition calendar. And with Canada’s top athletes at the starting gate, the event promises to be a weekend to remember for thrill-seekers and winter sports fans.

With big Canadian names like Mark McMorris, Maxence Parrot and Sébastien Toutant in the lineup for the Snowboard Slopestyle and Big Air World Cups, and local favourites Alex Beaulieu-Marchand, Vincent Gagnier and Kim Lamarre ones to watch in the freestyle ski events, Quebec City is a hotbed of homegrown—as well as international—talent this week. “Nearly 300 athletes from 30 countries arrived yesterday and are starting their training on site today, if they haven’t already. It’s amazing to have these elite skiers and riders here in our city,” said Chantal Lachance, Vice-President of Marketing and Operations for event organizer Gestev. What’s more, as this is the final event of the year on the Snowboard World Cup Big Air circuit, the overall season winners will be taking home one of the International Ski Federation’s coveted Crystal Globes. For many countries, Québec and Stoneham World Cups count towards the Olympic Team selection process. It will be the case for Canadian snowboard athletes in slopestyle and big air and for freestyle ski athletes in slopestyle.
Final event of the FIS Super Series
The Quebec City Big Air World Cup is the third and final event of the brand-new FIS Super Series, designed to highlight the extraordinary skills of the very best skiers and snowboarders on the World Cup circuit. For its inaugural year, the Super Series has showcased big air events in snowboarding and freestyle skiing as part of the World Cup tour stops in Milan (Italy), Mönchengladbach (Germany) and Quebec City. Big air athletes competing in the Super Series will rack up points for the World Cup rankings as well as the Super Series when they launch off the ramp at the Jamboree. And that means the Super Series Trophy will be won and awarded right here in Quebec City.

World Cup events—and much, much more!
The Jamboree has always made it a priority to develop sport at the grass-roots level by featuring activities for amateur athletes every year. This year is no exception, with three new activities added to the program in association with Ski Canada and Canada Snowboard, the Quebec Snowboard Association and Ski Acro Québec. Up at Stoneham Mountain Resort, the Jambo Queen graces the slopes this Saturday, giving girls a chance to develop their competitive spirit with a special clinic focused on technique and accessibility. And the Jambo Kicker promises to get the adrenaline pumping at the base of the mountain with a mini terrain park open to anyone wanting to hone their skills. Finally, another new feature at Stoneham this year is the Epic Banked Slalom, a must for snowboarders wanting to race down the special course and log a great time. True to tradition, the Downtown Mountain presented by Tim Hortons is back at L’Îlot Fleurie with an urban bunny hill for kids age 5–14 to try snowboarding—all thanks to Stoneham Mountain Resort, the Quebec Ski Area Association, the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors and Burton.

Also at L’Îlot Fleurie, visitors get to try out the brand-new Mazda snowskate park with modules for beginners and experts alike. And that’s not all—at Vidéotron Mobile’s virtual reality booth, members of the public can experience the thrill of being in the boots of an elite athlete launching off the big air ramp.

Stairsmaster presented by O’Neill turns 5
Canada’s biggest urban ski and snowboard film competition, Stairsmaster presented by O’Neill celebrates its fifth birthday at this year’s Jamboree. For the fifth edition, there are five films in the snowboard category and five in the freestyle ski category, and the winner of each gets to take home $5,000 in prize money. All ten films are now available online at snowjamboree.com, and the winning flicks will be announced tomorrow and shown on the big screen in front of thousands of spectators at the grand final FIS World Cup snowboard and freestyle ski events right here in Quebec City this Saturday.
