Flow Tailgate Alaska is excited to announce the launch of our 2012 website. It includes detailed information on Flow Tailgate Alaska, Flow Tailgate BC and Flow World Freeriding Championships.
The front page of the website features the full length, Tailgate Alaska the Movie, produced in 2010 about the event, the movie shows what it is like to attend, access the mountains and compete in Alaska. It features Mike Basich, Aaron Robinson, Travis Rice, Scotty Lago, Travis Parker and many more. Although the event has nearly doubled in size since the movie was made, it serves as a good overview of what you can expect at Flow Tailgate Alaska.
Additional features have been added, like the event countdown timer with live images from Revelstoke and Valdez respectively. In the news section, there are a number of downloadable Wallpapers on massive Alaskan runs in a number of screen sizes, as well as links to coverage of events from past years. In addition, there is an interactive trail map with images of many peaks that surround base camp. The about page breaks down the event staff and gives easy access to them with Facebook integration.
Tickets for all three events have also gone on sale at the newly launched World Freeride Festival Store (worldfreeridefestival.com), which serves as the ticketing hub for all 2012 events. Tickets have been moving briskly for Flow Tailgate BC which is expected to fill its 150 capacity quickly.
Flow Tailgate Alaska also plays host to the Flow World Freeride Championships, with a $10,000 pay out for the champion and running from April 1-12, 2012. Flow Tailgate BC will run from March 8-12, 2012. Tickets will be available shortly for both events, with tickets limited to 150 for the inaugural Flow Tailgate BC.

Flow Tailgate Alaska was formed in 2008 by Mark Sullivan (founder of SNOWBOARD magazine, and former editor of Snowboarder Magazine.) Held annually on Thompson Pass (Valdez, AK), the event has grown more than 1500% in the past 5 years, making it the World’s largest backcountry event and one of the only participation based events in winter sports.
