2010 Subaru Freeskiing World Championships In Snowbird Utah
Current Subaru Freeskiing World Tour leader Griffin Post has high hopes for the 2010 Subaru Freeskiing World Championships in Snowbird, Utah. With his high ambitions, winning just the event is simply not enough.
An international field of the world's best skiers, including star skiier Griffin Post, will descend upon the Wasatch Mountains next week to compete on the famed venues Silver Fox and North Baldy for the Subaru Freeskiing World Championships title.
Registration filled up in a matter of minutes, proving that the 13th Annual Subaru Freeskiing World Championships is one of the most coveted events in freeskiing.
“We’re honored to be hosting some of the best big mountain skiers from around the world for the final stop of the Subaru Freeskiing World Tour,” said Snowbird President Bob Bonar.
Approximately 200 freeskiiers will compete against the reigning Subaru Freeskiing World tour leaders Griffin Post and Jacqui Edgerly on Snowbird’s extreme terrain.
Also in attendance will be the 2010 Subaru FWT points leaders Angel Collinson of Snowbird, Arne Backstrom of Squaw Valley, and Aaron Schmidt of Fernie, B.C.
''I'm very excited to compete at the Subaru Freeskiing World Championships'', said current Subaru FWT leader Griffin Post. ''My goal is to win the tour more than the event. To be the first guy to win the McConkey Cup is the ultimate aspiration.''
Located 29 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport, Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort is North America’s most accessible year-round resort and averages 500 inches of snow per year.
