Words: Jeff Schmuck

Greetings from the Association of Freeskiing Professionals, where after an incredibly busy and exceptional week, it’s time for one of the most significant and consequential rankings updates of the year. The reason?

Get your reading glasses on, because here’s a lengthy and in-depth look at how this all-time week shook up the AFP World Tour Rankings…
