STEFT 3: Jay Peak Extreme Competition
FWT qualification is on the line this weekend at Jay Peak
Words by: Alex Kaufman l STE Online Editor
While no one is exactly sure what in the Lord's name is going on weatherwise here in the East (what month is it?), everyone can be sure that the place to be for this St. Patricks Day weekend will be Jay Peak Resort for the 3rd (and likely final) stop of the Ski The East Freeride Tour. Whether this is your first event or you're battling for the qualificaton into the Freeskiing World Tour, the Jay Peak gang is always welcoming.
The forecast for the weekend is balmy (with lots of sun) and event organizers are keeping a keen eye on the snowpack for course location decisions. The Face Chutes are being monitored carefully in regards to Sunday's finals. Any updates will be available via the Ski The East Freeride Tour Facebook page and/or announced at registration.

Registration will be on Saturday morning from 7:30 – 8:30 in the International Room. The course will be announced at that time. Judges will cut the field after Day One (Saturday) and those who make the cut will ski two additional runs on Day Two (Sunday). To find out if you made the cut and to get results from Day One, an announcement will be made at the après party at the Pump House Indoor Waterpark at approximately 4pm on Saturday afternoon. Those who make the cut will check-in again at the International Room on Sunday morning at 8 am. Awards will be held at the Tower Bar on Sunday at 3pm.

Jay Peak will host a Day One après party at the bar at the Pump House, complete with music, drink specials, and discounted access to the Pump House waterpark floor, so be sure to pack your bathing suits. It is expected to be a beautiful day, so the party will likely spill onto the Pump House’s outdoor mezzanine. The cut and other announcements will be made around 4 pm.
The Mad River Glen stop on March 25th is, at this time, kaput. If the snow gods get over their tissyfit then anything could happen, but right now the forecast is for the tissyfit to continue.
