go fast and be in control. the judges are traditionally a bit more old school so you dont have to worry too much about grabbing your 10 foot cork 7 as much as doing a spraffy over a 50 footer. kinda weird but true. the more you let gravity do the work for you (straight down the mount) and not spend too much time traversing from hit to hit you'll be fine. lars chickering ayers sets the bar almost always with his crazy runs, drew tabke always holds it solid with throwing a few badass backies and simple 3's in his runs. colin collins and sage did make some waves in the crowd by throwing MASSIVE cork 7s and a flat 3 respectively in their runs. there is a ton of footage on the freeskiingworldtour.com website as well as teir vimeo page. there are even full shows where you can see how people put their qualifying/day 1 and day 2 runs togheter. all in all its a RAD event and going to be even better next year when they link up with the freeride world tour.
