Junior Freeskiing Championships at Snowbird


The final of five four stops, Snowbird will be hosting the Junior Freeskiing Tour Championships starting this Wednesday, April 4, and ending on Saturday, April 7.

Backed by the International Free Skiers Association (IFSA), the JFT helps groom young mountain athletes into big competitors that could go on to Freeskiing World Tours--should that be their dream.

Both boys and girls will be competing. Two age groups will be represented, 12 - 14 and 15 to 18.

The first run for 12 - 14 year olds will be on Thursday, April 5 at 9:30 a.m. The 15 - 18 year olds will duke it out on Friday, April 6 at 9:30 a.m.

Finals will take place on Saturday--starting at 9:30 for the young group, 11:30 for the older group.

Please note: there would have been five stops in the Junior Freeskiing Tour, but due to the lack of snowfall this season, the stop at Crested Butte was cancelled. Because of this, the overall JFT Champion this season will be determined using the top three out of four event scores.
