“Imagine how huge this is for kids coming up through the ranks,” says Jesse Fulton, of SnowCrown organizer 365 Sports. “I even plan to get some autographs,” Fulton says with a wide grin. “SnowCrown still has some spaces left is still taking registrations and we expect the list of Canadian winter action sport heroes on board to continue to grow”, says Fulton.
