FIS Freestyle moguls and aerials athletes return to competition in the new year this week at the Putnam Investments Freestyle Cup in Wilmington and Lake Placid.
Freestyle athletes from around the globe have been competing at Lake Placid for more than 30 years and this week’s event features more than 160 athletes from 17 nations. Lake Placid and its neighbor Wilmington began hosting this event in 1985, five years following the 1980 Olympic Winter Games.
The Putnam Investments Freestyle Cup begins on Friday at 9:50 am with men’s and women’s moguls qualifications. Finals begin at 1:30 pm.
Saturday night’s aerials competition starts at 2:55 pm with the finals slated for 8:15 pm. A fireworks display over the Olympic Jumping Complex is also set for after the finals.
