FIS Snowboard World Cup Event


You can just see that winter is getting closer. Every week, more and more events for the upcoming season are being announced and confirmed. This week is no different. Telluride, Colorado has been confirmed to host the U.S. Snowboardcross Cup. Running from December 16th-18th, this will mark the second year that the event has been on the FIS Snowboard World Cup schedule. The event will include three competitions. They will be parallel giant slalom, individual snowboardcross and team snowboardcross. The Snowboard World Cup actually hosted its first event of the season in Argentina last month. This month will see the tour visit the Netherlands and the U.K. In November, things will move to Switzerland and Sweden. For December, competitors will visit South Korea and Italy before moving to Telluride, which is the final event for 2010.

  As it is every year, the arrival of winter here in British Columbia, Canada is greatly anticipated. This year is looking like a big one too. The La Niña weather pattern is developing in the Pacific, which always brings extra powder to the province. That makes for even better trips into the backcountry. B.C., Canada is a backcountry paradise with some of the best places in the world for big mountain skiing. Heliskiing is the best way to access the backcountry, and no one does it better than Mica Heli Guides. They run small-group tours on their 177,000+ acre tenure just north of Revelstoke.

Their terrain is the complete package, boasting every imaginable backcountry feature. Once covered in the tons of powder that drop here on the western slopes of the Canadian Rockies, you'll be hard pressed to find a better place to ski or snow cat boarding. Vacations with Mica are truly one-of-a-kind. They include a stay in Mica's luxurious backcountry lodge, which is situated right on their tenure. That puts some of their best runs only a two minute helicopter ride away. For a bit of the best heliskiing around, make sure to book with Mica, and do it soon before all their tours fill up.
