After the 2009 season we evaluated the women's freeski program as we do with all of our sports. This season, we'll be hosting a women's superpipe freeski competition at our second event at Snowbasin Restort in Utah. There will be 20 women freeskiers competing in prelims and finals with live coverage on NBC Sports. We worked closely with Sarah Burke as a spokesperson of the sport, to figure out what would work best for this season, and we'll continue to evaluate women's freeski and decide how best fits in on the Winter Dew Tour moving forward.
