Junior Freeride Tour

I’ve been around the ski and snowboard freeride scene for many many years now, but as I get older I start to notice details about the community that remind me why the sport is a wholesome one. Unfortunately, this may change now that FIS has bought it with a view to make it an Olympic sport.  The short term support for athletes might be great, but the long-term health of the sport and what has made it so good will, inevatibly, change.

This photo set is from the New Zealand Junior Freeride tour where the sport is still a wholesome one that is more naturally focused on supporting your friends and encouraging creativity.
