Already taking the 2011 Subaru Freeskiing World Tour (FWT) to new heights, MSI announced today the second stop of the tour at Las Leñas, Argentina, August 25-28, 2010. After the first stop of the Subaru FWT in Chile – The North Face Chilean Freeskiing Championships presented by Smirnoff in El Colorado, Chile, August 19-21 – MSI will pack the gear and head to Las Leñas, Argentina. Freeskiing’s elite will battle it out in the Andes snow for the event title, overall World Tour points, and a cash purse.

“Its amazing that after 12 years the Subaru Freeskiing World Tour is returning to the original South American freeskiing venue, Las Leñas Argentina,” said FWT Competition Director Bryan Barlow. “It’s a true fit for the tour as the mountains are truly unrivaled in the world, allowing the athletes to showcase their progressive big mountain freesking skills that has accelerated freeskiing popularity and awareness to the mainstream around the world. The conditions are shaping up to be a stellar snow year, and the elite that show up are in store for an incredible competition.”

And Las Leñas resort couldn’t be more excited to host the competition.

“We are very proud to be the ski resort of choice for Argentina’s first edition of the FWT,” said Las Leñas marketing manager Sofía Fernández Madero. “The natural characteristics of our mountain and the climate favors our position as a destination of excellence and real snow off-piste mecca in the region. We have everything ready to welcome the athletes participating in the event at our resort at the foot of the slopes. We believe it will be the biggest event of the season in Argentina and we hope you enjoy.”

This will truly be a memorable and exciting event to continue the kick off of the 2011 Subaru Freeskiing World Tour. For those unable to attend, make sure you check out daily videos, photos, and blogs at www.freeskiingworldtour.com
