Kristi Leskinen, freeskiing pioneer, will host the third annual Homecoming ski invitational Feb. 25-27 at Seven Springs Mountain Resort.

Other professional female freeskiers will join Leskinen in a rail jam and slopestyle competition over the weekend.

The field will include top female skiers Grete Eliassen, Sarah Burke, Jen Hudak, Kaya Turski, Keri Herman, Meg Olenick, Anna Segal, Dania Assaly, Ashley Battersby, Devin Logan, and Maude Raymond.

Seven Springs created Homecoming in 2009 to highlight the skills of professional female athletes in a three-day invitational event for top skiers from around the world.

 Snow Park Technologies will work with Leskinen and Seven Springs to design and build the course specifically for the event. 

"My dream was to create an event that gave female freeskiers a platform in which to showcase their skill, innovation and creativity," Leskinen said.

Seven Springs was selected as the event's home because of its commitment to developing and growing its terrain parks, halfpipes and superpipe. Since its initial endeavor into terrain creation in 2004, the resort has created five terrain parks of varying difficulty and progression and more than 50 features in all.

Seven Springs is just off the Pennsylvania Turnpike, within 200 miles of Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Cleveland, and Columbus.
