Smith Optics Junior Freeski Open

Smith Optics Junior Freeski Open

Whitewater Ski Resort is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Smith Optics Junior Freeski Open happening January 30 -  February 1, 2015.

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

Here is the video from the third annual Smith Optics Freeski Comp January/February 2014.

A big THANK YOU to all of our sponsors from 2014!

"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."
