2018 carinthia freeski open March 9-10
Our annual AFP Silver certified event is back to its roots as a freeskiing slopestyle competition that since its inception has seen some of the biggest names in the sport on the podium. This season’s version is going to be no different with a $7,000 purse up for grabs for the pros and tons of gear for winners in the amateur division. Carinthia’s acclaimed terrain park builders go all out for this competition so athletes and spectators alike can expect one of the biggest slopestyle courses in the land in our XL park “Inferno*”- the only trail to ever hold both an X-Games and Dew Tour slopestyle. So bring you’re A-game if you want to go home with the goods, and bring your camera because these kids go BIG.
