The Nissan Tram Face will now be comprised of two days of competition in order to provide the best conditions possible to the riders coming from around the world to the second stage of the Freeride World Tour. The first day of competition is now scheduled for Friday, February 26th. There are two faces possible for this stage opening: Silverado and National Geographic Bowl. For now, the weather conditions are good in Squaw Valley USA, however, the predictions show a storm front coming through during the weekend. The organizers have decided to go ahead with a first day of competition leaving a window for a second day on the mythical Tram Face early in the week. For the Freeride World Tour organizers, the snow conditions on the chosen face thus the riders’s security are key. This decision was made by the organizers in cooperation with local mountain guides.
