The only U.S. stop of the 2013 Freeride World Tour took place Wednesday at Kirkwood, Calif. Low snow conditions in the Tahoe area made for tough riding for the big-mountain skiers and snowboarders, but the competitors made the most of it. The event was held on a permanently closed zone at Kirkwood called The Cirque.
