Crystal Mountain Resort is proud to host an International Freeskiers and Snowboarders Association (IFSA) sanctioned FWQ 4 Star freeride competition. Freeriders are scored based on line choice, fluidity, technique, control, and style as they navigate through natural terrain featuring trees, steeps, cliffs, chutes, drops and gullies where they are rewarded for using the features creatively. Showcasing their skills in Crystal’s most challenging terrain, these athletes are redefining the sport of Freeride.

Huge shout out to Sierra Nevada, the official beer sponsor of the Crystal Mountain Freeride World Qaulifier 4* event! There will be beer specials all week long around the resort at the Bullwheel Restaurant, Chinook Cafe and Campbell Basin Lodge.
