Salomon Extreme Freeride ChampionshipsMarch 3 – 6, 2016 in Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico
Blizzard of the year recap from Freeride World Qualifier. Check it out!
We are proud and excited to return in 2016 as a 4* Freeride World Tour Qualifying (FWQ) event. Taos is the oldest FWQ event in the Americas and several of the athletes who have competed here have gone on to qualify for the elite Freeride World Tour (FWT).
For the first time Taos will be adding a 2* event! 2* athletes will compete on Thursday, March 3rd, with the top finishers securing a spot in the 4* Competition. The 4* Comp will be held on Friday & Saturday, March 4 - 5 (weather day, March 6th). The masters division, those 40 and over qualify, will compete on March 4 - 5, same days as the 4* Comp.
Now more than a decade old, we remain known as an athlete-centric event that features the best terrain, parties and people in the Rocky Mountain southwest.
