February 18th, 2010

Solid performance at first two stops earns her a wild card into the third stop at Squaw Valley

Fieberbrunn, Austria – With a fourth place finish at the second stop of the Freeride World Tour in Fieberbrunn, New Zealand’s Janina Kuzma has moved up to the number three spot in the Freeride World Tour rankings and has received a wild card entry for the third stop at Squaw Valley .

On the challenging north face of Wildseeloder, 14 skiers competed for a purse of 8.000 Euro and points for the overall tour ranking.

A perfectly sunny day and a layer of fresh snow made for great, yet difficult conditions, as the base was rather shallow. Therefore aggressive, fluid skiing was in demand.

Defending Freeride World Tour champion, Ane Enderud had the best run of the day followed by Janette Hargin of Sweden. Austrian Lorraine Huber placed third.

The third tour stop follows at the end of the month in the United States where riders will get to ski the legendary Tram Face in Squaw Valley.
