The Freeskiing World Tour had its 5th stop this past weekend in Kirkwood, Ca for the North American Freeskiing Championships. After 2 days of qualifying, 69 men and 25 women competed on the lookers right of the infamous Cirque for Day 1. The Kick Ass Blasters had a solid Day 1 with Arne Backstrom leading the pack sitting in 5th. The field was then cut down to 30 men and 10 women for the Day 2. The finals went off Sunday with blue skies and powdery snow. Men and women alike were sending large airs and enjoying some rare comp powder. Though heavy fog came late in the day cancelling the men's super finals, Arne Backstrom finished 4th, John Lange 9th, Scott Hanichen 14th, and Mike Vaughan finished in 16th.
