Winter Park going Whistler

Looks like winter park is trying to snag some of the freeride glory from nearby Keystone Resort. For years Keystone has been the go-to spot for gnarly, cranium cracking freeride mountain bike trails.
This summer, Winter Park Resort unleashes Crankworx Colorado, a three-day (July 5-7) freeride fest with
a cross-country race, a downhill dash modeled after the notorious Air Downhill in Whistler, a Super Downhill, Big Air and a Slopestyle competitions.
The jumps, berms and other obstacles will be designed by
John Cowan, one of the most recognizable riders in dirt jumping and builder of the Whistler Blackcomb Mountain Bike Park's Kona Jump Jam, and the world-renowned Hell Track I in San Diego, CA and Hell Track II in Kamloops, BC.
Could be totally off the hook. And when the comp is done, Winter Park will have a world-class jump course.

Crankworx Colorado? Who are the ad wizards that came up with this campaign?
