Torito tops qualifiers at U.S. Freeskiing Nationals

U.S. freestyle ski teamer Emiko Torito — who had four podiums on this season's World Cup moguls tour — overcame a strong field of female contenders on Wednesday to win the first qualifier day at Subaru U.S. Freeskiing Nationals with 30.88 points. On her tails, Aspen telemark skier Kate Cardamone clenched the second spot with 28.75 points.

On her tails, Aspen telemark skier Kate Cardamone clenched the second spot with 28.75 points.

Day One of the qualifying round of the Freeskiing Nationals kicked off under sunny skies and perfect snow conditions at Snowbird, Utah. Due to the amount of freeskiers attempting to qualify for the main event (the Freeskiing World Tour) two qualifying days were necessary in order to give each competitor in this sold-out event a crack at competing against pre-qualified World Tour athletes.

The first day of the World Tour begins today as competitors head to Silver Fox with the final and super final rounds taking place on North Baldy on Saturday.
