Garmisch Partenkirchen, Feb 1rst, 2009 The North Face Ski Challenge Presented by Gore-Tex Hits The Zugspitze and Steals The Show in Garmisch-Partenkirchen ! Nine Young Freeskiers Qualified For Final in Val Thorens. The North Face Ski Challenge presented by Gore-Tex made its second appearance this year on the top of Germany , on the famous Zugspitze and noticed a remarkable increase in the level of the competitors this year on the top of Germany. 41 riders gathered on Germany’s highest ski arena to compete in both freestyle and freeride for two days and in almost ideal conditions. Romain Raisson, Event Manager: “ The park was perfect and well shaped, the temperature surprised us and with virtually no wind , the riders could throw all the jumps they had in store ! And today, for the freeride, it got a bit colder but it didn’t disturb the competition. We saw great skiing and we’re eager to see what the qualified riders will do in the finals !” And indeed, great skiing to watch was on the agenda of the week end with participants coming from Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Czech Republic, Austria and Italy ! Kings And Looking For More ! This year’s demonstration of the young skiers present at the event showed that they had trained. “ I don’t ski often in freeride” admitted Kings (16-18 years old) winner Johannes Drexl, from Germany” but now I’m going to train for the final in Val Thorens”. Second in the Kings category was Dries Lemmens from Belgium who has won the Landgraaf stage last year and participated in his third Ski Challenge event. “ It’s always good to come back and I’m so happy that I qualified again ! I can’t wait until I get to the Alps again !” he said. Family Business In the Teens (14-15 years of age) category, the competition was dominated by Tobias Mangold, from Germany who inspired his brother Lucas to win the Kids (12-13 years of age) category too ! “ I guess our parents now have to come with us to the final” they both commented ! They demonstrated that they not only knew their mountain but also true dedication to becoming complete overall freeskiers. Young Talent Revealed In the Queens category ( girls 12-18) , we discovered a true overall talent, Arianna Tricomi from Italy who skied as well in freeride as she did the first day in freestyle, demonstrating her skills in the park. She’ll definitely be one of the skiers to follow in the finals this year and aspires to get to the next level in her skiing career. Join Now ! The North Face Ski Challenge presented by Gore-tex now heads up north to Ruka, Finland next week end (Feb 7-8) and Âre, Sweden the week after (Feb 14-15) before coming back to Chamonix on Feb 28-Mar 1 and discover Jasna, Slovakia ( March 7-8). All qualified riders will then meet in Val Thorens, France on March 27-28 to determine who’ll win the ultilmate prize: a sponsoring contract with The North Face, Dynastar and Lange and become a pro rider ! More info and applications online on www.thenorthface****/skichallenge About The Competition The Ski Challenge idea came to life when J.P. Baralo, a former freeski team manager, realized that there was no European outlet to showcase the potential of young, undiscovered freeskiers. Baralo approached The North Face, and together they created a new, unique event in which unknown kids from across Europe could demonstrate their skills and have an opportunity to make a name for themselves. The North Face Ski Challenge Tour is open to all European residents, boys and girls, aged 12-18. www.myspace****/thenorthfaceskichallenge

Ruka, Finland, Feb 8th, 2009, 2009 Finnish Lapland Resort of Ruka Welcomes The North Face® Ski Challenge Presented by Gore-Tex® For The Second Time In The Country Of The Flying Finns ! The North Face Ski Challenge presented by Gore-Tex continued its tour this year by going to Ruka, in the Finnish Lapland to once again admire freestyle skills of the Flying Finns. Chilly temperatures didn’t prevent 33 kids from throwing a major freestyle show and ski difficult blown snow in freeride. If there’s a country were our eyes are always turned to the skies, it’s Finland. This year again, we were amazed at the freestyle skills participants demonstrated! Their jumps and tricks in the air attracted a fascinated crowd in spite of the polar temperatures.This year again, and even if the Finnish winter vacations hadn’t started yet, 33 kids travelled sometimes more than 1000 kilometers to Ruka to participate in this year’s edition of the ski challenge. And temperatures didn’t rise in spite of the hot freestyle show: Järi, our snowmobile driver in the park, said: “ It’s only -22°C but with the wind chill factor, it’s more like -50°C in fact !” And on the freeride day, it got even colder with wind chilled temperatures of -60°C ! Confirmation of mature talents. Some of the young riders participating this year were already known to us and qualified again for the final in Val Thorens to be held at the end of March. Roppe Leppänen & Antijussi Heikkinen were two of the young skiers we knew would probably do well, as they demonstrated so much talent and skills last year. Roppe Leppännen: “ I clearly came here today to win and qualify for the final again. I was third last year in Val Thorens and when you see what happened to AJ Kemppainen, the first edition winner, it motivates you to come back and try to win”. For AJ Heikkinen, he has clearly come to qualify again and go back to the Alps. Impossible to determine winner If no girls showed up this year to participate, the Kings category was so competitive that the judges couldn’t determine who was the strongest skier between Roppe Leppänen and Aleksi Laitinen. Along with Ville Koskela and Juha Mourujärvi, who qualified in 3rd and 4th place, they will form a team that will come to the top of the Trois Vallées end of March with legitimate ambitions. Remains for them to train in more demanding snow conditions on steeper terrain to maybe win the ultimate prize: a sponsoring contract with The North Face, Dynastar and Lange. Record number of qualified riders ! The jury decided to qualify 11 young riders this year in Ruka, setting a new record for pre qualified riders of the event series. William Revenaz, our starter: “ The kids here are really above the field in freestyle. And given the mountain here, I can understand why. But they’ve also improved their skills in freeride. Young Anttijussi Heikkinen for instance, came to Val Thorens and discovered big mountain skiing there. This year, he won’t come back to discover only !” The North Face Ski Challenge presented by Gore-Tex now heads west to Âre next week end (Feb 14-15), located 1300 kms from Ruka. Then the young riders will come to Chamonix on Feb 28-Mar 1 before travelling to Jasna, Slovakia ( March 7-8). All qualified riders will then meet in Val Thorens, France on March 27-28 to determine who’ll win the ultilmate prize: a sponsoring contract with The North Face, Dynastar and Lange and become a pro rider !
