Chapelco Freeride FWQ Update

FWQ 2* competition in South America adds bonus “finals day” and increased prize purse for the event at Chapelco Ski Resort.

Freeride Argentina FWQ in association with the Freeride World Tour and the International Freeskiing and Snowboarding Association (IFSA) are announcing some exciting new developments for the 2* FWQ event scheduled for Chapelco.

Due to athlete demand and the popularity of the Chapelco competition – the only FWQ event being held in Argentina in 2017 – the event has just been expanded from a “1 day, one-run" competition by adding a FINALS DAY, scheduled for August 26, 2017. The criteria regarding the athlete cut for Day 2 of finals will depend upon snow and weather conditions and the final inscription numbers for each competitive division.

Due to the expanded format and the addition of the finals day, the event schedule has also changed. 

  • August 24: Registration & Athlete Checkin

  • August 25 - 26: Day 1 and Day 2 of Competition 

  • August 27: Weather Day

Along with the new 2 day format comes a substantial increase in the prize purse from $1500 to $4000. This fantastic development gives Chapleco FWQ the largest purse in the Andes Series for the 2017 season and will certainly come as welcome news to all the competitors.

A complete schedule of events, athlete welcome parties, and other activities will be provided to all athletes 5 days in advance of the registration date as part of the athlete information package.
