Qualifiers kick off US National Freeskiing Championships at Kirkwood

Posted By: The Ski Channel on February 24, 2011 2:11 pm

It’s go time in California.  Kirkwood plays host to the best skiers in the world as the Freeride World Tour and the Subaru Freeskiing World Tour converge to offer up the Subaru US National Freeskiing Championships this weekend, Feb 24th -27th.  Today marks the start of qualifying (start list below video) and day one, featuring already qualified skiers and those who survived the cut today, will begin tomorrow, weather permitting.  Rockstars of the sport from all parts of the globe will be here including Henrik Windstedt, Aurelian Ducroz, Seb Michaud, Reine Barkered, Sverre Liliequist, Janette Hargin, Janine Kuzma, JT Holmes, Timy Dutton, Julien Lopez, Jess McMillan, Angel Collinson, Lars Chickering Ayers, Drew Tabke, Ben Wheeler, Adrien Coirier and many many more.

A cold storm is projected to hit the area Friday so there may be a weather day involved.  Which is awesome because the softer snow will allow the athletes to really go for it, ski hard and put on a show for us all.  You can watch a LIVE feed of the event right here on The Ski Channel.com.  Stay tuned.
