    Lolol. I almost wrote something like "dickwaving about Amerikkka v. Yurp forbidden!"

    Obviously, Mammoth is a way better ski area than Europe. Thanks for your agreement!

    The video teasers are super weak. Would be cool to see something to get us stoked on whats to come at the new venue instead of 15 seconds of previous years' vids and 30 seconds of events after the first stop. Zero about Baqueira or potential forecast start

    So one interesting take away from the FWT podcast: they're doing the cut after the third event, and then those who don't make the cut will compete in three more events against the leaders from the current season's FWQ. Making it easier to get back into the mix without taking a full year's worth of competing to do so. Pretty cool and I hope they give those other three events good coverage, since I'm sure most of us would be anxious to watch those as well.

    That face is 20m up and 300m traverse from the lift. Just like mammoth.

    Hate to bring the negativity but thats a tiny looking venue. Maybe its a perspective thing?

    It is not negativ. A one hit wonder on the lookersleft wont bring enough points. Not much for the big mountain guys. But for all the bcfreestylers there are some options. I am keen to see it. It is been a while

    It is. Ever since the FWT was announced in Baqueira my friends and I were talking about how stupid it would be to use this venue, and how unlikely that they would use the obvious first choice for anyone except the ski resort directives, who apparently don't want people to know what kind of terrain there is right off their lifts. Check post #380 for pictures of the Vinyeta zone. Preferred by locals, by the two baqueira riders on the fwt... and the general public. But we get a 250m 15second face. It's literally half the size. Oh well. No one will get more than 3 decent hits, and winning runs will be less than 5 turns. It's shit and I'm sorry you guys will get this as a fwt excuse. They'll certainly do the comp in the morning before the sun hits the face too, which is like the only advantage this face has when compared to the north facing Vinyeta.

    The sun would be actually a plus factor cause the the cameras work better and the europe livestreaming time would draw more viewers. edit: but what time the face gets sun like 0845?

    But what do i know.... let the games begin

    Haha, I don't think I won. I was leading until fieberbrunn but screwed the pooch pretty bad there and at Verbier. I can't remember who won though.

    Looks like it'll be a fun season with the new format. Never considered Spain a freeriding location but the mountains look good in pictures so we'll see. Fingers crossed for good snow/weather this year.

    The second one: I guessed as much when I saw it in a few edits and compared it to the maps.
    And Hey powdork where is that kind of face right off the mammoth lifts ?
    Why do you keep bringing up mammoth. I always said mammoth was a shitty choice. Tons of choices on our side of the pond better than mammoth.

    Heís conflating the Eastern Sierra vs Spain argument from many months ago by just calling it Mammoth. Over and over again. Maybe time to move on?

    Btw, FWT had an event at Mammoth like 10+ years agoÖ canít really remember where they put the start gate. But the riding has really elevated so much since then that bigger faces seem required now.
