The Salomon Extreme Freeride Championship is one of the most anticipated stops on the North American big mountain competition circuit with more than $10,000 in cash and additional prizes on the line. As an International Free Skiers Association (IFSA) sanctioned event, the Freeride Championship is expected to attract many of the top competitors in big-mountain freeriding. "We're proud to be working with Jim Jack and the rest of the IFSA," said Tom Winter, Chief of Race. IFSA President Jim Jack added, "Taos is one of my favorite stops on the North American tour. The vibe there is truly something special and the venue is world class." For more information about the Salomon Extreme Freeride Championships, or to register as a competitor, go to
