Timber Tour at Apex

Apex Freestyle Club is ready for the first Timber Tour B.C. Freestyle Series season event. Apex Mountain is hosting the competition that will feature moguls, big air and slope style events Friday to Sunday. There will be more than 180 athletes in the disciplines age 12 and up in the Timber Tour and seven to 12 in the Super Youth.

AFC coach Kenni Kuroda is excited, especially in moguls because he feels they have a strong contingent this year.

“We have at least eight kids who could be on the podium this weekend,” he said. “I’m looking forward to that.”

AFC slope style coach Stuart Chapman is looking forward to seeing what his athletes can accomplish with two days of training under their belts.

“Really looking forward to the big air most of all,” said Chapman, who has 15 athletes competing. “Looking forward to seeing variation of tricks on the rails.”

This is one of two qualifying events for the Canadian Junior Nationals. The mogul and air site is walking distance from the Apex village. People are welcome to watch the athletes laying down amazing tricks. Volunteers are also needed. Anyone interested is asked to email amtodd@telus.net.
