Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

 

Chamonix, world freeride capital with backdrop of the Mont Blanc (4810 m), will receive the Freeride World Tour for the 9th year running. Renowned for its epic surrounding peaks and the cable car to Aiguille du Midi (3842 m), the town of Chamonix is the birthplace of many great mountaineers but also of freeride champions like Aurélien Ducroz and Jonathan «Doud’s» Charlet who have both won the Freeride World Tour. The reigning world champion, Loïc Collomb-Patton, winner of this stage ski in 2014, 2015 and 2016, will for sure be getting a lot of attention as well as his biggest rival of the past season Logan Pehota. The competition face, located in the area of La Flégère, offers great possibilities for the riders who will, however, need to be versatile on this varied terrain.
