TDCski Tignes coach India Cairns placed 5th place in a strong international field competing at The North Face Frontier 4 star Freedride World Qualifier.

Putting down a solid run at The Remarkables Alta Chutes, India had a great result.
The event was part of the Winter Games NZ, check out the video about the event that was made by WinterGames NZ.

India also entered into the lower tier event The North Face Frontier Freeride Qualifier 2-star event.
India placed 4th in the 2-star event.
India showed some great form and some great results.
I was pretty nervous because of the snow, the level of the other girls and because the event was filmed there was a drone following you which I’ve not experienced before! The snow for the 2* event was like frozen concrete, the conditions were slightly better for the 4* but you had to be careful not too pick up too much speed otherwise you’d fly past your hits. I was just happy to have stayed on my feet and skied my line as I planned.India Cairns
