Yesterday was Day 1 of the FWT Qualifier at Moonlight Basin, Montana. Judging from this clip it looks like these skiers put on one hell of a show! Even if the snow is a little sketchy, the Headwaters Venue looks rad and given a chance to send it to steep landings in a comp like this you can always count on some impressive hucks. Olglivie came up a little short on a large air but the stomp on rock was damn impressive, even if it looked like it surprised him as much as the judges.
For a “qualifying event” the bar was pretty high. The top 5 men and top 3 women from this event will get a green light into the North American Freeskiing Championships coming up at Kirkwood, CA April 4th-9th.
