When ski racer Julia Mancuso got third at the Freeride World Tour's Verbier XTreme in Verbier, Switzerland, we were impressed. We're even more impressed now, after watching her run. Check out the video here and see what Julia had to say about her run.

When ski racer Julia Mancuso got third at the Freeride World Tour's Verbier XTreme in Verbier, Switzerland, we were impressed. We're even more impressed now, after watching her run. Check out the video below. Here's what Julia had to say about her run:

"I was nervous the day before picking my line because you have to stand at the bottom and visually pick your line without skiing, or really knowing exactly what to expect. In racing it's pretty much drawn out for you and there are fences and you trust that the course is in the best condition it can be, in the Xtreme, you just hope that there aren’t any rocks under the snow, or in the landing of the cliff, and that everything goes smoothly. I wasn’t looking to win, just to ski a fluid line. When I dropped in on top, my skis got a little bit tangled and I knew I had to refocus, and let it flow down the rest of the line. After the small traverse, I said to myself, just open it up a little and don’t hesitate on the cliff, and then just ski to the finish. I was planning on hitting one more cliff band…but I got a little distracted, and just wanted to finish. It was so much fun, and I can’t wait to do some more freeskiing this spring." —Julia Mancuso wrote on her website.
