Hard to believe it’s already that time again for Mountain Sports International’s Subaru Freeskiing World Tour. Now in its twelfth year, the tour is the largest and longest running competitive big mountain freeskiing set around. The events kicked off in September in La Parva, Chile, and the action is now headed for North America. Look for big mountain skier JT Holmes, 2009 overall Subaru FWT Champion Frenchman Julien Lopez, and Squaw Valley wonder Tim Dutton. The athletes will all vie for $100,000 in prize money.

“With the addition of two international stops, over $100,000 in prize money, and continuous live coverage, the Subaru Freeskiing World Tour is stronger than ever,” said MSI president Adam Comey. “And to honor our good friend and legendary skier Shane McConkey–who founded this sport and the IFSA–the overall World Tour champions will be awarded with the McConkey Cup. This sport was his vision and we intend to keep it thriving for years to come.”
