24 Hour Relay at Blue Mountain- Feb. 22-23

Back for a 3rd straight year, the “Jozo Weider” team led by Stefano Mastracci is at it again skiing at Blue for 24 hours, but wait, we now have some competition!  The Jozo “Freestyle Dusk Till Dawn” team led by Chris Haslett is challenging this year!

The Jozo Weider team is the defending Cowan Cup champions and plan to vigorously defend that title while raising much-needed funds for the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital and Special Olympics Ontario!  Oh ya and have a great time doing it all day and night long!

Don’t worry, with 10 team members you only ski for a little over 2 hours which can be split up as you like!  You will probably love it so much (Skiing down Smart Alec with no line-up and nobody on the hill) you will join and ski with teammates just for fun!

To signup please visit  or create your own team.  The event is open to Skiers, Boarders and Walkers, teams can range from 5 to 10 people.

For more information email  If you can’t join a team please donate and come out and cheer us on!


Please sign up to volunteer and enjoy giveaways and special parties!
