Kardinal Offishall, Young Empires join Horseshoe Open, Ontario's largest ski and snowboard festival


BARRIE, ONTARIO Horseshoe, a Skyline Resort is set to kick-off Canada’s newest and Ontario’s largest ski and snowboard festival, Horseshoe Open, March 8-10.

Presented by 102.1 The Edge and hosted by radio station personalities, Dean Blundell and Todd Shapiro, the three-day event will host some of North America’s best skiers, snowboarders and DJs alongside concerts from celebrated Canadian rapper, Kardinal Offishall and indie rock group, Young Empires.

Throughout the weekend, skiers and snowboarders will compete in several events spanning the resort’s 26 ski runs and popular terrain park, including Slopestyle, Rail Jam and Junior Jam categories, to be judged by members of the Canadian Snowboard Federation. The Saturday evening events will light up the sky with a professional Big Air competition alongside fireworks on the hill.
