Stoneham, January 14, 2014 – In this special Olympics year, Stoneham Mountain Resort combines significant scores! As the mountain is celebrating all through the season its 50th anniversary, it will also be hosting this week the 10th edition of the FIS World Snowboard Cup. From 14 to 19 January 2014, the best half pipe and slope style riders will compete in Stoneham, just 20 minutes from downtown Quebec City. This huge event is very important as this is the last chance for the athletes to get to the Olympics in Sochi this February.

WAITING FOR SOCHI… CHECK OUT THE SHOW AT STONEHAM!
This is an opportunity for the public to attend to top athletes performance before many of them will be flying shortly after the event to Sochi. Since the World Cup is the last chance of qualification for the Olympics, our National Team also has much to gain with 38 riders participating. As of today, only 3 Canadians are qualified. “We are happy to welcome the best snowboarders of the world, which is truly inspiring for our up and coming youngsters.” says Daniel Rochon, VP and General Manager for both Stoneham Mountain Resort and Mont-Sainte-Anne, continuing: “We invite everybody from the area and outside to come and visit us to cheer up the athletes taking part in this important race.”

OLYMPIC HALF PIPE – NATIONAL TRAINING CENTER
Our Olympic half pipe is unique in Quebec province and is also the only National HP Training Center on the East Coast. Thanks to this permanent structure, the resort is especially proud to allow local athletes performing on the international circuit to train in Quebec and to offer as well a venue for major sporting events, season after season.

THE WORLD CUP 24/24
Get closer to the action and make Stoneham your home during the LG/FIS World Snowboard Cup! For the occasion, Condos & Hotel Stoneham offers a 15% discount on ski-in ski-out lodging all week, from today to January 17.
