Aspen/Snowmass, CO,(Aspen/Snowmass Press Release)—The inaugural Aspen/Snowmass Open presented by Nissan offers the opportunity for up-and-coming athletes to compete on the renowned Winter X Games slopestyle and superpipe courses on Buttermilk just a week after the Winter X Games, before they are open to the public. The event will be held this week, February 9-12, 2006.

Nearly $30,000 of prize money is on the line and the top ski finishers in slopestyle and superpipe will qualify for the 2007 U.S. Freeskiing Open. This unique event will have open categories to skiers and snowboarders, men and women, in both slopestyle and superpipe.

Over 300 male and female athletes from five countries will compete in eight disciplines within skiing and snowboarding. Aspen/Snowmass locals include Steele Spence and Peter and Michael Olenick to compete in ski disciplines while Avery Karas, Justin Bartle and Teddy and Jordie Karlinski will compete in snowboarding events. All men's disciples sold out during the event's inaugural registration.

"There is no other event out there that combines snowboarding and skiing in an open registration format on this scale, said David Perry, Senior Vice President, Aspen Skiing Company.
