After eight successful years, Capitalize at the Clocktower returns to Ottawa and continues to be Ottawa’s biggest ski and snowboard event of the year.  A competition focused on overall impression based on style, consistency, and technicality; Capitalize is not a best trick contest.

Crew putting on the finishing touches

Athletes are invited to compete, along with a number of spots opening up to new comers each year.  Almost one hundred riders attend  this event and are split into five heats.  From those five heats, the top two snowboarders, top female, and top skier from each heat move onto the finals.
