MOONLIGHT BASIN – On March 31, the weekend following the lively Freeskiing World Tour qualifier competition at Moonlight Basin, the ski resort was host to the seventh annual Headwaters Spring Runoff, a down home freeride competition that showcased the resort’s steep, alpine chutes.
Open to all ages, there were divisions for men’s and
women’s ski and snowboard, and juniors. Prizes
included $1,000 and plenty of swag. The comp, run by the resort’s hearty and hard-working
ski patrol, is all Moonlight: no pretense, rowdy
skiing and a chill vibe.
From Stillwater Road, a green run that winds beneath
the Headwaters, spectators watched competitors
huck cliffs, straight-line narrow alleys, and style it
down the plumb line couloirs.
