Colorado Jr Freeride Championships, Aspen Snowmass

March 14, 2024 | Aspen Highlands

Due to current conditions in the Cirque Headwall, the Aspen Snowmass Junior Freeride competition will now be taking place at Filip's Leap in the Highland Bowl.

The Aspen Snowmass Junior Freeride is an IFSA-sanctioned junior regional and part of the Rocky Mountain Freeride Series. Winners will feed into national competitions. Skiers are judged on line choice, fluidity, control, technique, style, and energy.

2024 Schedule 


Mountain: Aspen Highlands
Area: Highland Bowl Run: Y1 (Filip’s Leap) & Y2 (Whip’s Veneration)

To access the venue take the Exhibition lift to the Loge Peak lift. Go straight off the Loge Peak lift to signs for the Highland Bowl. If conditions allow the bowl passenger cat will be running continuously. The cat picks up on the left just before the incline on the ridge starts and it drops just before the competition venue. To return to the venue, ski to the bottom of the bowl and take the Temerity lift which will drop you back at the bowl entrance. The hike from the bowl entrance to the venue takes roughly 10-15 minutes.
