Registration for the Headwaters Freeride competition is now full and closed, but if you are still interested in competing, please email: email@example.com ASAP. We still have several team reserved registration spots which are only available for the next day or so. Any Buddy Werner or Devo racers who have independently registered for the competition, please email me so that we have your email address for upcoming communications. If you have not registered, but have spoken with us about a reserved registration spot, please email us as well so that we can forward you the necessary registration paperwork. Thank you.
Buddy Werner or Devo athletes who are interested in competing in the Moonlight Basin Headwaters Freeride Competition on Saturday March 30 can register at: http://www.moonlightbasin.com/the-mountain/ski-events-2/. Registration opens on Friday March 1 at 12:00 PM and is limited to 80 athletes. They are expecting the event to fill up quickly, so registration should be completed promptly. The Freeride team, in coordination with some of the Buddy Werner coaches, will provide freeride competition training on March 23, 24, and 29 to prepare the athletes.
