Getting RevelSTOKED in Gnarnia: FWT Stop 3 Day 1

Highspeed airs, super G turns & fresh pow sum up Day 1 Stop 3 of the Freeskiing World Tour in Revelstoke, BC. 66 of the worlds best freeskiers, including 20 women & 46 men, from the Freeskiing World Tour, Freeride World Tour & qualifier events charged their way down North Bowl under the gaze of the world's most decorated judges – including three-time World Freeski Champ Hugo Harrison & heavy hitter Jen Berg. The 100 strong audience was held captive, despite freezing limbs, by the raw unchained display of athleticism and creativity shown by this extremely strong field of athletes.

(Check out this cool video that Nadia Samer posted on the world wide web)

The women set the bar high starting with Tatum Monod’s backflip and hard charging style. Third place went to Angel Collinson of Snowbird, Utah, who continued her reign of dominance with an aggressive and fluid line including a technical double drop. Nicole Derksen, Revelstoke hometown favourite, stomped her way into second with a technical line ending with a mandatory 15ft air. Ashley Maxfield awed the crowd with a stomach churning technical billy goat line finishing with a large air. High fives go out to Jaclyn Passo, Jacqui Edgerly & Lexi DuPont for going for some serious airtime, and stomping it.

On the men’s side it was an explosion of talent. Drew Tabke, defending Freeskiing World Tour champion, sent the largest double on the venue like he was sitting down for a cup of tea with his grandmother (earning him a second place finish). Kye Peterson flew off a similar line with near warp speed followed by a big ol’ floaty 3 landing him with the highest score of the day. Oakley White Allen, of Snowbird Utah, skied in his usual uber mellow, yet steezy-as-shit style, showing the newbies how it’s done and rounding out the top 3. Aurelien Ducroz, the man with wings and defending World Tour Champion, sent the majority of the venue’s exposure– all in one floaty air. Ben Ogilvie, winner from yesterday’s qualifier, skied one of the most playful runs of the day; you could feel his stoke from across the valley. Mat Jackson, of Squaw Valley, took the hairiest part of the venue and straight line/aired it, narrowly avoiding the forest on his way through.

As the bar was raised and talent pushed, we saw some near misses that had the crowd holding their breath. Film star Henrik Windstedt managed to self-arrest at the last possible second before a gnarly cheese grader cliff. There were several crashes in seemingly no-fall zones that happily & luckily ended without injury.
