Junior Freeskiing Tour UPDATE
The IFSA is excited to announce the successful start of the 2010 Junior Freeskiing Tour last weekend at the COWBOY UP Freeskiing Challenge at Stevens Pass, WA. Despite the challenges of dealing with the fog, judges and athletes worked to make the event happen by laying down some great skiing and judging on slope with a split judging format in very difficult visibility. This is never the Ideal format and is always the last resort when weather happens.
The organizers and judges would like to thank all the athletes that competed for their excitement and passion and all the coaches and parents for their enthusiasm and support for these young athletes. With everyone working together we were able to get 2 runs in on Sunday and get this event completed rather than the alternative of canceling the event all together. We appreciate your sportsmanship and understanding with the adverse conditions combined with a subjective format. We as organizers and judges work extremely hard to provide these events and opportunities for the juniors and all freeskiing athletes and appreciate everyone for being a part of it. Looking forward to seeing all of you at the next JFT event.
We would also like to announce that the Big Sky junior event has been canceled and we are working on a great event there for 2011. Please check the schedule to see the new link for the Crystal Mt. Junior Freeskiing Championships.
