words: Sam Turner
It is a fact of every skier’s life that watching freeskiing on network television always leaves something to be desired. The truth is, a national broadcast doesn’t always reflect the style of coverage that freeskiers crave. This year however, we’re changing things. The good people at NBC recognized that the best freeski coverage could only come from one place: the community itself. And where does that community rest its neurotic, goggled head? Right here on Newschoolers.com. This year NS is proud to present the free online stream of NBC’s Live Extra starting on Thursday, December 12th at 11:30am ET. Mike Rogge will provide the commentary, so you don’t have to worry about Luke Van Valin explaining Tom Wallisch to a national audience or detailing exactly what a four-on-pretzel-six is.

In addition to having exclusive control of the webcast, Newschoolers will be hosting a live chat so you can interact with Rogge and the other NS members watching the competition. In true NS fashion you will have input into what gets covered and what doesn’t, as well as the ability to discuss the comp, the riders and the tricks being thrown. The online-only camera angle will have full PVR capabilities, so you can pause, rewind and slow mo through every perfectly stomped triple. It will allow you to see an enhanced aspect of the Dew Tour that you don’t get on TV … all in glorious HD.
So what do you want see? We want you to have the ultimate viewing experience for the Dew Tour - one that reflects the core of freeskiing.
