Grand Targhee Big Mountain Collegiate Freeskiing Open

From January 27, 2017 until January 29, 2017

The best collegiate free skiers from across the country compete on the steeps and cliffs on the north side of Peaked. Grand Targhee Resort will host an International Freeskiers and Snowboarders Association (IFSA) sanctioned collegiate freeride competition. Freeriders are scored based on line choice, fluidity, technique, control, and style as they navigate through natural terrain featuring trees, steeps, cliffs, chutes, drops and gullies where they are rewarded for using the features creatively. Showcasing their skills in the steeps of Reliable and Bobcat, this next generation of rippers are redefining the sport of Freeride.
