I covered the inaugural event last year and it was fun! Mark this on your calendar. The Backwoods Project is hosting a terrain park for the public’s enjoyment for two days only at the end of January.
It’s an opportunity to celebrate freestyle skiing, drink some beers, listen to music and hit some rails at Marshall Mountain.
None of the four athletes from the Missoula Freestyle Ski Team who competed earlier this week in Steamboat Springs, Colo., earned spots on the U.S. Ski Team. But Montana athletes dominated the podium after Sunday’s men mogul competition.
