Outside Magazine and The Honda Ski Tour Announce Partnership

January 17, 2007 (Santa Fe, NM) – Outside magazine, the voice of America's active lifestyle, announced today its partnership with The Honda Ski Tour, North America's new elite, four-stop mountain festival and alpine skiing competition that features the world's best halfpipe and skiercross skiers competing for $500,000. The partnership aims to bring a new level of excitement and energy to alpine competition.

“Our objective is to create a cultural event with world-class venues, top level athletes, elite competitions and quality entertainment,” said Keith Carlsen, Director of PR and Communications at The Honda Ski Tour. “Outside shares our vision to grow this audience and celebrate the sport, the adrenaline of ski competitions, and the pleasure of the ski culture.”

In addition to the competitions featuring top athletes such as Darren Rahlves, the winter 2007 event will feature The Base Camp Music Experience with 10 big-name musical acts alongside the multi-day alpine festival including a pro photo competition, film festival, street bonfires, and countless parties.

“This celebration of the active lifestyle provides an unparalled environment for participants and spectators alike to experience world class athletic performance and have a great time,” said Outside publisher Scott Parmelee. “It's a natural extension of Outside 's mission and it's a great platform to raise awareness for this new Olympic competition.
