The FreeBOM is for every skier. It is your chance to get a cheer from the lift, a high-five at the bottom of the run and a shout-out from an MC in a one piece suit. It’s not about how well you ski it’s about how well you want to ski. This is theatre, this is action, this is the way skiing was meant to be before espresso coffee made it just another Saturday.
The competition is much like a big mountain event but instead of being held on the side of a steep rocky peak the event is located on Mt Buller’s infamous Wood Run – birthplace of Aussie bump skiing and an achievable challenge for intermediate skiers and a blast for experts.
Skiers will be judged on their skiing fluidity, aggression, line choice and control. The format is relaxed and the judges are as much a part of the entertainment as they are looking at the skiing. Prizes will be awarded to all ages and genders based on skiing, dressing, airing, falling and FreeBOMing.
Prize categories include Best Old +40 y.o, Best Young -16 y.o, Best Dressed Guy and Girl, Best Fall, Best Male Skier – “Nick Cleaver” Award and Best Female – “Kirstie Marshall” Award.
Wood Run is known for its big bumps and Bull Run bowl is the hot spot for Buller’s expert skiers. However, on FreeBOM’s Saturday in August the Bull Run FreeBOM Bowl will be an infusion of ski culture, funky music and friends.
