After a scintillating three events of FWT23, the cut has condensed the main roster to the best of the best, with the remaining riders offered a place in the FWT Challenger series.

Here, they will have the chance to re-qualify for FWT24, along with the top riders from the FWT Qualifiers. The FWT Qualifier series has been as exciting as ever, showcasing the true progression of the sport at all tiers. Despite the low snow levels across Europe, resulting in the cancellation of two 4* events – Engadin and Montafon – fresh freeride talent from all over the globe has been on display, and these up-and-coming riders certainly look to have what it takes to make the big league. These athletes will face off against the relegated FWT riders for their spot on the FWT24 at the following events:

  • Nendaz, Switzerland, March 4-8
  • Jasna, Slovakia, March 9-13
