Freeride days off and flying

Freeride Days at Big White Ski Resort welcomes the top riders from across North America this weekend.

Freeride Days officially kicked off Thursday as Bronze level riders from all over North America descended on Big White Ski Resort to try to win their chance at qualifying for the FMB Gold event held on Saturday the 13th.

14-year-old athlete Jackson Goldstone sits as the 1st alternate in the Gold event on Saturday.

“It’s pretty amazing, they [Loft Bike Parks] took a massive slopestyle course and shrunk it down so we can ride it. It’s super fun and built really well and I can’t wait to ride it” - Jackson Goldstone

The format allows the set field of riders 2 runs to get their best score meaning they can afford to crash, or take a safe run.

Liam Baylis used spin and flip combos to earn a bronze medal in the Bronze event. Kamloops BC local Soren Farenholtz’s calm and collected style understated the complexity of his tricks. Where he used opposite tricks to land him in 2nd place in the Bronze Finals. Liam Wallace was the winner of the day as he looked ready to take on the Gold course with his big tricks and overall composure.
