2015 Salomon Extreme Freeride Championships
February 25 - 28, 2015 in Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico
We are proud and excited to return in 2015 as a 4* Freeride World Tour Qualifying (FWQ) event. Taos is the oldest FWQ event in the Americas and several of the athletes who have competed here have gone on to qualify for the elite Freeride World Tour (FWT).
Now more than a decade old, we remain known as an athlete-centric event that features the best terrain, parties and people in the Rocky Mountain southwest.
We’re exited to keep the party rolling this season, and have scheduled this year’s competition from February 25 to March 1, with March 1 being a weather day if needed.
Registration for FWQ events in Region 1 will open on December 1, and for Region 2 will open on December 3. Please note that athletes will only be able to register for specific events 7 weeks prior to the date of that competition.
