After three days of non-stop action, the crews have reached the contest’s halfway point, with no signs of things slowing down. In this episode, Team K2 gets its first on-hill turns at Stowe, while Nordica opts to hit the slopes at Sugarbush. After bagging plenty of resort points, the crews hit the ground running, checking off tasks where possible en route to a head-to-head bowling showdown in Burlington. With three episodes remaining, it’s anyone’s game.
About FREESKIER’s Road Trip Challenge:
After months of anticipation, FREESKIER’s 2014 Road Trip Challenge (RTC) is here. This year’s rendition of the bout features Team K2 battling Team Nordica all across New England in a scavenger-hunt-style contest, in hopes of earning the coveted RTC crown.
Staying true to the 2007 debut of FREESKIER’s Road Trip Challenge, the rules for the seven-day battle were simple: Complete multiple unique challenges, both on- and off-hill, and gain points for each task completed. Throughout the six-part series, you’ll see everything from new tattoos, to multiple barfing incidents, local news appearances, TV smashes, and of course some damn good skiing from a wild bunch of contestants: Nordica’s Ian Compton, Kieran McVeigh and Dale Talkington vs. K2’s Clayton Vila, Maks Gorham and Sean Jordan.
Each team was also represented by one FREESKIER editor, in addition to a cinematographer and photographer, so no challenge would go undocumented.
The RVs have been returned in one piece (sort of), the points have been tallied, and the participants from both Team K2 and Team Nordica have resumed life as it was prior to this great showdown. To find out which team reigned supreme, tune in each Friday leading up to the 2014 edition of the iF3 Film Festival in Montréal, Canada, where FREESKIER will premiere the final episode and reveal which team took top honors.
This—this is Road Trip Challenge.
