KICKING HORSE MOUNTAIN RESORT SET TO HOST THE DOGTOOTH DASH – 2014 BUFF® CANADIAN NATIONAL SKI-MO CHAMPS
Golden, BC – The 6th annual Dogtooth Dash will return to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort this season on March 21and 22. In partnership with the Alpine Club of Canada, we will be hosting the 2014 BUFF® Canadian National Ski- Mo Championships presented by LIVE OUT THERE. Nested between five National Parks, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has been hosting Ski-Mo races for almost a decade, contributing to the booming interest towards this discipline across North America.
From the racer’s mouths, The Dogtooth Dash is the most exciting, scenic and challenging event in the Ski Mo calendar, home of the national championships for the last past years and the only built-in course taking place inside a controlled ski area. Moving with the momentum of last year, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is very proud to team-up with BUFF® Canada, a worldwide recognized brand of outdoor enthusiasts & Official Supplier of the Canadian National XC Ski Team supporting several athletes through personal sponsorships. “We are very glad to be part of the Dogtooth Dash. For us, Ski-Mo and BUFF® are a perfect combination. This is the best event for testing the products and having a lot of fun at the same time,” said Peter Collins, President of BUFF® Canada.
After five years of service and creating a one-of-a kind event, Ian Gale has passed on the torch to a new board of directors, composed of pro-racers, senior event marketers & mountain safety specialists.
Kicking Horse Mountain resort is thrilled to announce the addition of a nocturnal vertical race, launching a dual format counting for a new national title. The epic 4800 ft. ascent individual course is back, setting its quarters at top of the mountain, home of the award winning Eagle’s Eye Restaurant and will take the racers through 4 alpine bowls, 3 ridges and a few world class chutes!
