Whitewater Ski Resort is pleased to announce the 9th Annual Smith Jr. Freeski Open Jan 9-12. Registration will open in December.
This Big Mountain Freeskiing competition is for ages 7 to 18 years who will be judged on 5 different categories as described below. Skiers are rewarded for using the terrain creatively and are scored based on line choice, fluidity, style, control, and aggressiveness as they navigate through black and double black ski terrain featuring cliffs, airs, moguls, and anything else the mountain can throw at them.
The terrain chosen has a designated start location, left and right boundaries, and a finish line. Where competitors go is totally up to them. This type of competition meshes really well with the Kootenay mentality and terrain.
