IFSA Junior National Freeride Competition @ Crystal Mountain

Follow CM FREERIDE on Facebook for all the latest news and updates.  

Crystal Mountain Resort will host an International Freeskiers and Snowboarders Association (IFSA) sanctioned junior freeride competition February 21-24th, 2019.

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, this next generation of rippers are redefining the sport of Freeride.

Q & A:

Q: What should I bring for snowshoeing?

A: Check the forecast before driving to the mountain to see if it will be snowing or not. We suggest layering and wearing a waterproof layer on top. You can always take layers off while walking if you get too hot and stuff into a backpack. Sturdy hiking boots are also recommended. In your backpack, bring water and snacks for along the hike. Hand warmers are nice to have if you get cold easily. 

Q: Can I attend this if I’m not 21 years of age or older?

A: Yes, you just can’t participate in the tasting of beer/cider/wine. You will be able to sit with everyone and enjoy dinner.

Q: Can I bring my dog on the snowshoe walk?

A: Unfortunately, no. You will be taking a short chairlift ride up to begin your walk and dogs are not permitted on the lifts.
