Subaru Freeskiing World Tour Qualifier
The World’s Best Freeskiers Descend on the Steeps of Telluride for the Qualifying Round of The Subaru Freeskiing World Tour Feb 4-6 (see the attachment below for a complete schedule).
Starting February 4, 2010, Telluride Ski Resort will play host to nearly 150 athletes competing in the Subaru Telluride Freeskiing World Tour Qualifier, which takes place on Telluride’s vast and challenging terrain. Telluride is a qualifying event for top skiers who are not already qualified for the World Tour.
Telluride has seen three feet of snow in the past week and athletes are anxious to compete on the resort’s infamous huge vertical drops. Day one's venue, REVIEW, includes a 600-vertical-foot drop where skiers will navigate technical terrain and play with numerous rollers and kickers. Day two on the notorious Mountain Quail venue features an 1,100 vertical-foot-drop, bigger cliffs, and more exposure.
