Competitors took to the slopes this weekend for the Smith Optics freeski competition.

The third day of the competition was cut short due to poor visibility on Polar Peek, but day one on Concussion and day two on the Knot Chutes saw some great skiing.

Top prizes were given to skiers who put together the best runs; being judged on line choice, control, fluidity, technique and aggressiveness.

Competitors took home their share of the cash purse and product from the sponsors.
