Freeskiing World Tour Day 1 Revelstoke
Revelstoke, Britsh Columbia – Day One of the Swatch Freeskiing and Freeride World Tour went off Friday on Revelstoke’s “North Bowl” with great success. The level of skiing and athleticism displayed was high, with athletes battling for the few spots in Sunday’s finals.

Already a freeskiing legend at the young age of 21, Kye Peterson of Whistler/Blackcomb, Canada, topped the Men’s field by taking full advantage of the terrain “North Bowl” has to offer. Kye successfully skied off a big double-staged cliff up top, and then skied fast and aggressively through the open bowl. To gain maximum style and creativity points, he landed two huge 360s at the bottom, impressing fans and judges alike. Sitting in second place, with his playful, fluid, stylish skiing, is Subaru Freeskiing World Tour 2011 Champion and The North Face athlete, Drew Tabke, with a score of 39.17. Completing out the top three Men’s finishers was Oakley White Allen of Snowbird, Utah, scoring 37.50. Out of the 50 Men’s skiers, 25 men will advance to the heli-accessed Day 2 Finals on “Mac Daddy”, a remote location in the Revelstoke backcountry.

The stacked women’s field was very competitive, with only 3 points separating the top ten female competitors. Ashley Maxfield of Alta, Utah, skied the most technical line of the day for the women, wowing the crowd and surprising even herself. “I went bigger than I thought, but as soon as I landed on the second pillow I knew I had it” said Maxfield who scored 33.50. Two- tenths of a point behind Maxfield sits the third place finisher of the 2011 Canadian Freeskiing Championships and Revelstoke local, Nicole Derksen with a score of 33.30. Rounding out the top three Women’s Day 1 competitors is the 2011 Freeskiing World Tour Overall Champion and The North Face athlete, Angel Collinson with a score of 32.90.

“The level of skiing today was even higher than anticipated,” remarked Event Director Bryan Barlow. “Conditions were perfect. Soft landings and good snow allowed competitors to ski lines that have rarely or never been skied before.”

The 2012 Swatch Freeride and Freeskiing World Tour at Revelstoke Mountain Resort continues Saturday with snowboarders from The Swatch Freeride World Tour and The North Face Masters of Snowboarding, competing on Mac Face for a one-run final. The Final Day, Day 2, of the Swatch Freeskiing and Freeride World Tour is currently scheduled for Sunday, January 8.
