For the first time in 15 years, a major big mountain contest is taking place in Alaska. The Freeride World Tour just came across the pond to AK for the very first time to compete on Haines' legendary face, "The Venue," while American George Rodney holds the lead in overall points for men's skiing, with steeps slayer Samuel Anthamatten and Reine Barkered close behind. On the snowboard side, France's Jonathan Charlet is only slightly out ahead of Flo Orley and American Ralph Backstorm, with Sammy Luebke, who we profiled earlier this winter, in a close fourth. We're stoked to see the women were allowed into the event as well, with riders like Anne-Flore Marxer, Shannan Yates, and six other hunting for points alongside skiers like Jackie Paaso and standing champion, Austrian Eva Walkner.
