Today In Stoke: Icelantic team set to throw down in Denver Big Air Battle of the Brands
Team members Leigh Powis, Josh Stack and Jaron Stadler, all acrobatic ski wizards, will represent Icelantic in the competition. The "Battle of the Brands" will open Denver Big Air presented by Sprint, a two-day event that revolves around world-class skiers and snowboarders flying off an amazing 102-foot high ramp that will be built and covered with snow in the heart of Downtown Denver at Civic Center Park. World-class competitors will zoom down the 102-foot high ramp and launch themselves in the air to execute gravity-defying, breathtaking acrobatics on skis and snowboards.
"The 'Battle of the Brands' will showcase some of the greatest ski acrobatic athletes in the world," said KieAnn Brownell, President of the Metro Denver Sports Commission. "To have a team from a Colorado company like Icelantic make the first commitment to the competition is great and will give everybody a chance to see if there is such thing as a 'home mountain advantage.'"
