Ski The East Freeride Tour: Jay Peak, VT

Jay Peak hosted the fourth and final stop on the 2013 Ski The East Freeride Tour.  A two-day event, I was able to watch some of the women run on Saturday (and disappointed I could not make it back for the more “extreme” finals on Sunday).  This was my first visit to one of these contests and I loved it – a positive feeling to the entire production and authentic freeride style inspiration everywhere.  I was impressed by the relative range of ages and abilities – as well as  female participation – and credit Ski The East with creating an inclusionary environment – such a great grassroots way to grow freeride exposure.  I look forward to following the tour next winter. . .
