Fwt doesn't matter too much on conditions, if it's low snow it makes the runs more technical. My son does the junior tour, they share the same US venues. They are intense when there is low snow..... The.judging is totally different than a supernatural event judging. based on scoring and what not it would take the big name guys you lister a lot to get to the top of the qualifying list of fwt. riding big pow lines is not technical or what judging looks for. They give higher scoring for gnarly Rocky cliffy technical lines. Jones or XDLR would be more suited.for it... Not better or worse than the other big names just totally different.
