On February 11 and 12 the world’s best freestyle skiers and snowboarders will take the historic Fenway Park for what USSA promoters are billing as the “biggest and best big-air completion in history.”
NBCSN will be airing coverage of the snowboarders on the evening of Thursday the 11th and skiers will take the stage on Friday the 12th.
Virtual renditions of the event are shown below:
According to an interview conducted by NBC Sports, USSA CMO Michael Jacquet says the ramp will include a 110 ft in-run and the jump will span from center field to home plate, which sounds fackin awesome. Especially, when the green monster stands only 37 ft high.
And while Skiing Big Air is not yet a part of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, we can only hope this event solidifies the need to include the discipline on the next Winter Olympic docket.
So get ready Massholes and move over Tek, it’s time for the world’s best freestylers to SKI THE EAST. #Wickedpissah
