Freeskiing World Qualifier event at Moonlight postponed

Explorebigsky.com Staff Writer

The Moonlight Basin Subaru Freeskiing World Tour Qualifier, Jan. 26-29 at Moonlight Basin is postponed until March 22-25 in order to guarantee the best possible conditions for the event. Much of Moonlight Basin's terrain is skiing well, however, portions of the competition venue are experiencing less than ideal conditions.

"It's been a strange, meager year in much of the west, and has forced us to wait for the much needed storms," says Event Director Bryan Barlow. "Unfortunately, the venue is not holding as much snow as we need to make this terrain competition ready. The quality of the event wouldn't be what we had envisioned without the proper coverage. Postponing until March will allow for the conditions that our athletes need to ski it to its full potential."

Since this new date is following the Championships at Snowbird in 2012, athletes will be skiing for a qualifying spot in the 2013 Freeskiing World Tour.
