5th Annual Smith Junior Freeski Open

5th Annual Smith Junior Freeski Open

Whitewater Ski Resort is pleased to announce the 5th Annual Smith  Junior Freeski OPEN
January 29, 30 & 31, 2016. 

Registration is now FULL. 
Please contact marketing@skiwhitewater.com or 250-354-4944 to be added to our waitlist.

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

"Been skiing here for a few years now and it never disappoints, Fresh powder, piles of steep tree runs and little to no lift lines. There is also some awesome back country accessible terrain all around. One of the best places to ski in the world for sure!"
