NextSnow All Stars to Kick Off Olympics on NBC
SAM Magazine-Durango, Colo., Aug. 9, 2005-The signature Snow Monsters event, the NextSnow SEARCH, will stage a special "All Stars" event that will serve as the warm-up act for NBC's opening-day coverage of the 2006 Winter Olympics, which begin in Torino, Italy, on Feb. 11. The event will air from 2 to 3 p.m. EST; it will actually take place in Keystone, Colo., Jan. 27-28.
This made-for-TV special will reunite top competitors from the two prior Searches, along with the top two performers at each of this winter's five Super Qualifier events. Events include a race, Superpipe, slopestyle, and big air. The All Stars broadcast will be intercut with live segments from Torino, providing a tremendous showcase for skiing and riding and making a strong connection between current and future Olympic stars.
As a result of this new wrinkle in the NextSnow SEARCH calendar, Snow Monsters is rescheduling the finals-originally planned once again for Keystone-and moving it to Killington, Vt., Mar. 3-5. Final decision on a TV outlet has not been made. \
