WOMAN'S QUALIFIER COMPLETED, MEN WILL RESUME FRIDAY DUE WEATHER


While the snow tapered off towards the end of the day the low lying clouds were unrelenting.  The women’s qualifier was able to finish, but the men we’re only able to finish the first seven and all of the men will run again tomorrow.  The venue, Separate Reality, was covered in over 30cm’s of fresh snow that allowed the ladies to showcase their skills.
Coming in first was Revelstoke local Tatum Monod.  At 19 years old and skiing in her first big mountain competition, Tatum was able to distinguish herself from the field with her high scores in fluidity, control, and technique.  “The venue was super fun and had lots of fun little features” according to Tatum.  Looking towards the first day of World Tour competition Tatum remarked “I’m just going to do the same thing and have fun, which is the biggest thing for me.  I don’t really know what to expect, it’s my first comp, so I’m just going to go ski like I know I can.”
In second place was Nicole Dirksen, another Revelstoke local.  In third place was Louise Lintilhac from Crested Butte, CO.  Taking the top two spots, Revelstoke locals showed that knowing the local terrain is a definite advantage.  “The women skied solid and smart today.  With the flat light and new snow they skied very well.” According to long time announcer Frankie Alisuag.
“We were excited for the new snow and we’re really glad we got all the women off today.  We managed to get seven of the men off, but due to the low lying clouds rolling in we’re going to run all of the men tomorrow” Event Director Bryan Barlow remarked.
All qualifier men will get the chance to ski Separate Reality Friday and the first day of World Tour competition has been pushed back to Saturday.  “There’s a reason we schedule two weather days in Revelstoke, it dumps here” said Head Judge Jim Jack.
With the women’s qualifier concluded and the sky still hammering snow, The Canadian Freeskiing Championships are under way.  The next two days are shaping up to provide more snow as well as more thrills as the competition heads into the weekend.
