6th Annual Smith Junior Freeski Open

6th Annual Smith Junior Freeski Open

Whitewater Ski Resort is pleased to announce the 6th Annual Smith  Junior Freeski OPEN
January 27, 28 & 29, 2017. 

Registration will open Mid December 2016. Please stand by for updates.

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.

Categories will be broken into:
Boys 7-11, Girls 7-11, Boys 12-14, Girls 12-14, Boys 15-18, Girls 15-18

Stay tuned for a detailed schedule of events for the event weekend. There will be a Saturday night Movie Mingler for athletes and their families, location TBA.

Take a look at all the fun we had at last years event.

 

A big THANK YOU to all of our sponsors for the 2016 event!
