Posted By: The Ski Channel on February 7, 2011 11:42 am



Ski The East and Meathead Films are proud to present the 2nd Annual 2011 Ski The East Freeride Tour (STEFT). The mission of the STEFT is to synchronize the
Eastern freeride community by providing a completely unique platform for the collaboration, competition, recognition, and progression of East Coast freeride skiing.
By integrating each event into the collaborative STEFT, we’ve created the opportunity for additional camaraderie, competition, and exposure for the events, mountains and contestants. The STEFT has been officially sanctioned by the International Free Skiers Association (IFSA), the governing body of the Subaru Freeskiing World Tour. By doing so, the STEFT overall male and female point winners will be awarded prequalification in the 2011/2012 Subaru Freeskiing World Tour. This provides an incredible opportunity to allow the top Eastern talent to compete in the world-class event series. The Ski The East Freeride Tour has created the opportunity for additional awards, including an increased cash purse, as well as heightened media exposure for each event. The STEFT will help facilitate event awareness on a larger scale through garnering mainstream print, television, and internet medias. Additional STEFT awards include the coveted Ski The East “Shot Ski Trophy,” presented to the male and female first place finishers of each event, as well as a Bern Helmet for the “Cliff Huckstable Award,” which will go to the athlete who executes the Best Air at each event.
