Albany, NY – PrimaLoft® – Insulation Technology™ announces its support as a sponsor of the Movement Skis World Backcountry Freeride Jam (MSWBFJ) 2007, a three-day event on April 20-22, 2007 at Whistler Resort, B.C during the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival.

Throughout the weekend, the MSWBFJ will present amateur and pro backcountry competitions and the first The North Face Canadian Ski Mountaineering Championships.
