Do you like skiing?
Do you prefer the true north?
Do you like getting rowdy while skiing in the true north?
You’re in luck! The second Freeride World Tour is making a stop in Golden, British Columbia this week at the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. This is the only stop in North America for the 2018 season, and the first since 2014. The competition weather window will be from February 3rd through 9th and there is a possibility that two competitions well be held to make up for Hakuba, which was cancelled due to variable snow conditions and low visibility. This means the world titles could still be anyone's. However, top Canadian tour skies Logan Pehota, Kylie Sivell and Trace Cooke will be ones to watch out for as they represent their homeland at this stop.
As you likely know, the Freeride World Tour is a stage for skiers and snowboarders to showcase their talent on steep faces with death-defying backflips, knee-splitting cliff hucks, and sound-barrier-breaking speeds. The stop at Kicking Horse should be no different. The area already has a reputation for some of the gnarliest terrain for the Freeride World Tour Qualifier Wrangle the Chute, which many of the North American athletes competed in for qualifications.
This stop will definitely be an exciting sight to watch, so hopefully the weather will pull through for BC. Live streaming will be held on the FWT Website which will be announced on FWT social media.
