This is some great footage from the finals and highlights from the 2010 Subaru Freeskiing World Tour Qualifier from Telluride, CO. For 2010, the finals venue was moved to the spectacular Mountain Quail in Black Iron Bowl from the Palmyra Peak venue from 2009. After two days of amazing skiing, Telluride’s own Travis Wolfe narrowly beat out Whit Boucher with a two day, combined score of 77.00 compared to Boucher’s 76.90 to be crowned Men’s Champion. Wolfe skied an extremely technical line, with several impressive billy-goat drops followed by a 20-foot cliff drop. For the women, Vail’s Claudia Bouvier came from behind to defend her title from the year before after making up over 11 points from Day 1 of the comp.
Here are the final podium results:
1st Travis Wolfe-Telluride, CO – 77.00
2nd Whit Boucher-Vail, Co – 76.90
3rd Connery Lundin-Squaw Valley, CA – 74.67
