WHAT IS IFSA BIG MOUNTAIN – FREESKI?

“The International Freeskiers and Snowboarders Association (IFSA) is the primary sanctioning, judging and ranking organization for junior and adult big mountain freeride events in North America. Operating in partnership with the Freeride World Tour (FWT) and valued event hosts, the IFSA has built a network of events that enable junior and adult athletes to compete and qualify on regional, national and world stages. Freeriders are scored based on line choice, fluidity, technique, control, and style as they navigate through natural terrain featuring trees, steeps, cliffs, chutes, drops and gullies, where they are rewarded for using the features creatively.”

Athletes in the Big Mountain Travel Program are introduced to mountaineering concepts such as snow safety, backcountry travel and avalanche awareness, as well as Big Mountain competition strategy and execution for performance success.
