FWQ 2-Star & 4-Star Coming up this Weekend at Crested Butte


The Freeride World Qualifier series is rolling in to town this weekend with skiing and snowboarding across 3 days as riders try to qualify for the Freeride World Tour.  There are two events on tap with the 2-star going down on Friday, the 4-star on Saturday and Sunday, with a weather day on Monday.  The venues have not been announced yet, but with Dead End and Body Bag in heinous conditions and Staircase looking questionable, athletes will have to get creative. We hope to see the CB crowd out representing in full force spectating.  Check out some of our favorite highlight videos below:
