Winners were awarded new Chevy cars and many other prizes. The skiers have shared that they were a tight group, having a great time expanding the relatively new sport of Freestyle Skiing, The competitions included: aerials, ballet, and moguls. So to win an Overall title, the skier needed to excel in all three types of skiing.
The feature length film – WINTER EQUINOX – was made by following the 1974 IFSA Freestyle Pro Tour around the USA, starting in Waterville Valley NH, through Park City, Sun Valley, Jackson Hole, and on to Heavenly Valley, CA. They also stopped for some fun freeskiing at Snowbird and Brian Head UT. In addition to plenty of Freestyle competition, the movie also has interviews with Clendenin, Ferguson, Salerno and Evans at the top of the runs, at the bottom, in an airplane, motor home, condo, hot tub, bar, and on the streets of Jackson Hole.
