Words: Jeff Schmuck

Happy New Year from the Association of Freeskiing Professionals! Now that the Holiday season is in the rear view mirror (and we hope you all had a happy one!), the 2017 AFP World Tour is back in full swing, with six events having transpired over the course of the past week: the two-day, Silver-Level U.S. Revolution Tour at Waterville Valley, New Hampshire (Slopestyle), the Bronze-Level USASA Rocky Mountain Slopestyle Series at Copper Mountain, Colorado (Slopestyle), the Bronze-Level USASA Adirondack Series at Whiteface Mountain, New York (Slopestyle), the Bronze-Level Singles, Doubles, Triples, Oh My! at Utah’s Olympic Park (Big Air), and the Bronze-Level Nor Freeski Cup in Dombaas, Norway (Big Air). Here’s a look at how these events shook up the AFP World Tour Rankings…
