This past weekend, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, hosted the Ski Mountaineering National Championships, where 82 randonee racers clad in tight suits and super lightweight skis climbed and descended 7,850 feet in less than three hours. Check out this video to see how it all goes down (including their climb up Corbet's Couloir!).

This past weekend, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, hosted the Ski Mountaineering National Championships, where 82 randonee racers clad in tight suits and super lightweight skis climbed and descended 7,850 feet. Breckenridge's Pete Swenson won for the men with a time of 2:26:26. Dynafit-sponsored Monique Merrel won for the women with a time of 3:12:32. Check out this video to see how it all goes down (including their climb up Corbet's Couloir!).

Verbier XTreme
Dek: 
On Saturday, the women skiers and snowboarders tackled Verbier, Switzerland's Bec de Rosses to compete in the final stop of the Freeride World Tour. Norway's Ane Enderud repeated her victory from last year, Jackson Hole's Jess McMillan took second, and wild card entry Julia Mancuso, fresh off her two Olympic silver medals, took an impressive third place. Judge Tom Winter reports.

It’s hard to describe in words how intense the face of the Bec de Rosses, and the riders who challenge it, are. Saturday started rather unpromisingly, with rain in the village and low clouds cloaking the top of the venue. But the weather blew out, allowing both the women skiers and snowboarders to get their runs in. Notable was the presence of Julia Mancuso, the U.S. Olympian. But it was Ane Enderud’s day as the Norwegian skied flawlessly to repeat her heroics from last year here, and win the women’s ski division again.

Bec De Rosses, Verbier
Dek: 
The final stop on the Freeride World Tour takes place Saturday on Verbier, Switzerland's ominous Bec de Rosses. Judge Tom Winter tells us what the venue looks like in person and how the athletes are feeling before tomorrow's event.

It’s spring here in Verbier, Switzerland. The sun pounding down out of a topaz sky. After three events on the Freeride World Tour, this is what we know: Anyone can take control of the overall championship here, it is just that tight at the top of the standings. I have been discussing this and other permutations with the judges. Nicholas Hale-Woods has just announced that the final stop of the Freeride World Tour will go off as scheduled, tomorrow.

So you may never huck cliffs like pro skier Julian Carr, but that doesn't mean you can't see what it feels like to ski fast and furious in Wolverine Cirque, a notorious zone in Utah's backcountry. Check out this helmet cam footage Julian sent us.

The future looks bright for the Nissan Freeride World Tour.
Dek: 
After an aborted attempt to run the Freeride World Tour big-mountain competition on Squaw Valley's Tram Face on Sunday, blue skies and untouched snow mean the competitors are heading to Silverado today. Judge Tom Winter predicts we'll see the future of the sport emerge: park tricks mixed with big-mountain terrain from skiers like Candide Thovex.

After yesterday’s very correct decision to hold off on the Tram Face venue here at the third stop of the Nissan Freeride World Tour at Squaw Valley, everyone is pumped to see the athletes do their thing. Given that today is dawning with clear skies and no wind, it looks as though we’re going to see the volume cranked up and the event shift out of standby mode.

Tram Face Slide
Dek: 
As of this morning, the plan for the Squaw Valley stop of the Freeride World Tour was to let competitors tackle the infamous Tram Face. But then poor snow conditions led to a change of plans and today's run was can canceled. Instead, the event will move to Silverado tomorrow. Judge Tom Winter gives us the details.

As any kid will tell you, there’s nothing worse than getting a gift on Christmas, only to have it taken away. While today wasn’t quite Christmas, it did seem that those of us at Squaw Valley got the gift of a lifetime when the resort’s notorious Tram Face was given the green light from ski patrol as “good to go” for today’s Freeride World Tour competition. But then, in a cruel twist of fate, that very same gift was stolen from us.

Tram Face
Dek: 
Freeride World Tour Judge Tom Winter checks in from Squaw Valley, where it's currently dumping. The competition is slated to occur on Sunday with the number one ranked male skier, Candid Thovex, skiing first.

Editor's Note: Early Sunday morning, the organizers of the Freeride World Tour made the decision to hold today's competition on the Tram Face.
