If you’re 21 or younger it’s your turn to see if you got what it takes. Gatorade is bringing Free Flow to you. So you really don’t have any excuses to miss out on this one. They have 10 stops scheduled all over the U.S. for freeskiers and snowboarders to compete in slopestyle and superpipe. These stops include:

Jan 9th – Big Boulder Ski Area, Lake Harmony, Pennsylvania (slopestyle only)
Jan 9th-10th – Vail Ski Resort, Vail, Colorado (slopestyle & pipe)
Jan 16th-17th – Tyrol Basin Ski and Snowboard Area, Mount Horeb, Wisconsin (slopestyle & pipe)
Jan 17th – Mountain High Resort, Wrightwood, California (slopestyle only)
Jan 23rd-24th – Killington Resort, Killington, Vermont (slopestyle & pipe)
Jan 23rd-24th – Keystone Resort, Keystone, Colorado (slopestyle & pipe)

Feb 5th-7th, Mount Snow Resort, West Dover, Vermont (slopestyle & pipe). Will be held in conjunction with the Dew Tour’s Toyota Championship

This competition is meant to be used as a stepping stone for amateur riders to go pro. And no joke, they are truly throwing that opportunity at the winners. Each stop will have three and six winners. Those winners will then be flown (compliments of Gatorade) to the Free Flow tour finals which will be taking place at the Winter Dew Tour’s Toyota Championship, February 5-7 at Mount Snow Resort in Vermont. And the overall champions are going to get to compete against the pros in the Winter Dew Tour.

Sick right? Makes me wish I was young again… and I guess good at snowboarding for that matter. There is a $20 registration fee and that does not include lift tickets. And there are limited spots in each competition, so you need to move quickly to set yourself up.
