When we take a step back and are honest with ourselves. Ski competitions are fairly boring events. Trying to take the 'free' aspect of 'freeskiing' and fit it into a set venue, time limit, and judging criteria really sucks a good bit of the fun out of why we bother to do the damn thing in the first place.
So this Winter when the UBC Freeride crew caught wind of Collegiate Freeride Series rolling through North America, the though was 'Hell Yes', but also 'Our Way'. Luckily our way included training not only how to ride hard but also how to make sure they could party during the entire process. Not only how to compete as a team, but also have so much fun along the way that nearly every other team was engulfed into the madness that was produced.
The final result? Aside from the debauchery, shenanigans, brown-out level riding, and re-defining of what a freeride competition could be. You'll just have to watch and find out.
