NorAm Halfpipe Competition taking place at Baldy’s Halfpipe tomorrow, January 8 and Saturday, January 9.
Starting tomorrow some of the nation’s best freestyle skiers will be competing in a FIS Freestyle Ski Halfpipe NorAm Event on Baldy. Twenty-eight skiers from the US and Canada will showcase their biggest and best tricks, flying, hucking, twisting, flipping off the SuperPipe on Lower Warm Springs. This definitely isn’t a juniors’ comp. These kids are competing for spots on the World Cup and ultimately the US Ski Team. They are the nation’s up-and-comers, so expect some huge air and some even bigger tricks. Then watch out for them in places like the Olympics and the X-Games in the next few years.
Come by and support local freestyle phenoms like Tai Barrymore, Colter Brehmer, and Ben Parker starting at 10:15 Friday morning and continuing throughout the day into Saturday. The event is hosted by Sun Valley Company and the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation (SVSEF) and is sure to be quite a show.
The event, put on by promoting and event company, URTUR, will be broadcast live on URTUR’s website, www.urtur.com. Up to the minute results will be available on the URTUR website as well. Also check back here for results, photos, and updates throughout the weekend.
