Freeriding is a sport that has experienced tremendous growth during the last few years and is supported by a “pyramid” of development programs. Under the leadership of the Freeride World Tour, the Freeride World Qualifier and the Freeride Junior Tour are designed to support grassroots growth in the sport. In addition, the FWT Club was implemented in cooperation with ski schools throughout Europe:
// The Freeride World Tour (FWT)
The FWT is the worldwide circuit of freeride snowboarding and skiing with the best riders in the world competing on the most legendary and challenging alpine faces and the most renowned ski resorts across the world.
// The Freeride World Qualifier (FWQ)
The world qualification circuit is designed to develop the talent and skills of up-and-coming athletes. Riders accumulate points via 50 events held around the world (including forty in Europe).
// The Freeride Junior Tour (FJT)
The FJT was founded in 2011 in order to develop a platform for young athletes (boys and girls) aged 14-18 to develop their skills and become future world champions. Beyond the coaching to develop their riding skills, these events teach young athletes how to safely pursue their passion for freeriding by emphasizing prevention, safety, and responsibility in mountain environments.
