What to do when it’s gusting huge and you can’t see anything? Start your day off right with a hearty elk breakfast: ground elk patties on freshly baked biscuits topped with gravy. Mmm, once you’ve finally chowed it down the winds will hopefully have subsided so you can go out and shred the wind load. Welcome to the Freeskiing World Tour Subaru Extreme Freeskiing Championships at Crested Butte! (article by Kasie Stroshin)

Stop 4 of the FWT kicked off a day late today with the qualifiers going down on the Headwall. Yesterday athletes were weathered out after a storm blew in, gusting high winds at the top with near zero vis but leaving in its trail 6 inches of fresh. All wasn’t lost though, after our hearty breakfast a sweet pow day ensued and gave athletes a chance to get acquainted with the mountain and it’s unique terrain.

This particular stop of the Subaru Freeskiing World Tour is the longest running freeskiing competition in the US. In it’s 16th year this competition has garnered the nickname of the ‘boneyard’ of the FWT. Its harrowing steeps, less-than-ski-width-wide chutes and rocky outcrops provide extremely challenging conditions and will have no trouble separating the technically strong skiers from the pack.

With another storm expected to hit this evening the cut was tough with 8 women and 21 men moving forward to join the prequalified athletes tomorrow for Day 1 on Staircase. The level of skiing was high with lots of big airs, billy goating and strong clean turns.
