LIVE TODAY - Freeskiing World Championships from Alaska
Once again Backcountry.com has teamed up with the Subaru Freeskiing Series to be able to bring the LIVE broadcast to the Backcountry Blog. The comp will broadcast today and tomorrow right here.
Start time today is 1pm, MST. (just prior to 1pm the live player will be embeded here on this post).
That should give most of you enough time to get the bulk of your work off the plate and cruise into the weekend with an afternoon of ski stoke live from Alaska. I for one know from the last time we broadcast one of these I was surprised (should I have been?) that it was so addicting to watch. Stoke level was high while production was near an all time low.
Backcountry.com ski athlete Cody Barnhill pulled of a win during the qualifying round yesterday at the Subaru Freeskiing World Championship being held at Alyeska Resort in Alaska.

At the qualifying round yesterday 11 women and 71 men headed up to the top of Alyeska’s North Face in hopes of joining the 50 or so pre-qualified World Tour athletes in the main event which begins today.
As mentioned, Cody Barnhill came away the winner from the men and Rebecca Selig of Timber Ridge, MI, smoothly executed an impressive cliff drop and ended her run with a long chain of technically perfect turns down the North Face to lead the women’s qualifying field.
The Subaru Freeskiing World Championships is the third and final stop of the Freeskiing World Tour as well as the sixth and final stop of the Subaru U.S. Freeskiing Series.
