    The FWT is sponsored by people who hate your freedom! And they promote face meting communism!
    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.

    All of those but Alaska have adult events that serve as qualifiers for the FWT. Snowbird just has a 2 star this year but Crested Butte and Kirkwood have 4 stars. (4 star comps count for more points and get a better field usually.) Also Big Sky has a 4 star, and Crystal has a 3 star.

    There usually isnít a lot of video of the US comps though - need to get out and see them in person.

    to clarify: I was just making fun of yeti's "anti americanism" and combined it with the thread title. the crack helps me think

    The coverage of the 4* in Hakuba was excellent it would be great if we could get that for Kirkwood and CB.

    Have y'all been watching the History of Verbier series? It's worth it IMO.

    They literally translate the time difference for you on their site.

    But yeah-- game on.

    Don't forget to fun bet.

    1-- Navarro (His comfort in these mountains.)
    2-- Turdell (His ability to technically link wild/off-beat features.)
    3-- Marshall (His NZ background and snow being similar to this venue.)

    Let's roll, bitches. I'll be tuned in live as it's the pinnacle of my internet ski life.

    I'll edit my other choices later... the site is telling me my choices are no longer competing. Covid Restrictions?

    Interesting we both identified with Turdell & Navarro.

    Where is Hotter?

    Is Tricomi not competing?

    More difficult to think about the girls as they all won my heart last year.

    She seemed pretty distraught after her friend died in the avalanche. Maybe taking some time off or out of the limelight?

    I don't think NZ competitors are on the tour this year. Something about not being able to get insurance because covid

    Yeah Marshall is the only kiwi who decided to go on the tour this year. Hank Bilious posted something on his Instagram yesterday talking about how it was technically possible for him to compete but he decided it wasnít the best decision in these times. Seems like a sentiment most of the NZ athletes share. Frankly I donít blame em for wanting to stay home in one of the only countries in the world with no COVID.

    Well they should still just send along a vid of Hotter. Its the least they could do for always making the right decisions.

    Took a little searching but I think it is called "TGR 2021".

    I'm pulling for Tabke, the 2018 clip makes me think he's due for some redemption
