Feeling Bold? Well for those who have their FIS license, you’re in luck! The Aspen/Snowmass Freesking Open is now accepting registrations for their upcoming competition in February. This year’s event will host skiers and snowboarders exclusively on the X Games slopestyle course and superpipe, making the event bigger and better than ever before. Also new, the Aspen/Snowmass Freesking Open has partnered with with Association of Freeskiing Professionals (AFP), which has dubbed it a Gold sanctioned event and included a generous first place prize of $25,000.

“By partnering with both the AFP and FIS Freestyle we are able to give athletes the opportunity to earn points towards both the Olympic qualification process and the AFP world rankings,” said Cat Leonaitis, Aspen/Snowmass Open Event Manager. “We are excited to be one of four NORAM CUP events in the US and look forward to being a part of the future of freeskiing as it takes shape. The Aspen/Snowmass Open has long been a partner with the AFP and we think the addition of FIS sanctioning brings even more value to our athletes in the face of an ever-growing competition calendar.”
