Final countdown to the Grand Finale of FWT by Peak Performance 2024

YETI Xtreme Verbier coming up with a weather window spanning March 23-31, 2024

After four successful events, the FWT by Peak Performance season is about to conclude with the most famous event on the freeride calendar: the YETI Xtreme Verbier. With the weather window – March 23-31 – rapidly approaching, the world’s best freeriders are preparing for one final show in what is shaping up to be an epic Grand Finale. Verbier’s legendary Bec des Rosses will once again be the battleground, an awe-inspiring mountain reserved for the finest freeriders, with steeps exceeding 50 degrees amidst a complex network of technical terrain, providing a fitting finale to an extraordinary season.

Who will be crowned World CHampion?

This year has dished up some epic conditions and memorable performances, with the level of riding rising again this season. The title has already been decided in the Snowboard Men’s category, but Victor De le Rue will surely be keen to make it a ‘perfect’ season and take home the win in his backyard. The Women’s Snowboard category, however, is extremely tight, with only 1,275 points separating the top three riders Núria Castán Barón, Anna Martinez and Erin Sauve, with a mere 75 points between Núria and Anna.

Rankings are a little more spaced out in the two ski categories, but the title is still within reach for many athletes. The big question in the Ski Women’s category is whether the current leader, rookie Astrid Cheylus, can keep up her solid form – and hold her nerve – going into the last event. Her powerful approach to big mountain skiing has been a sight to watch this season, but she’ll have to hold off the hungry veteran Hedvig Wessel, who is second. Both Manon Loschi and Sybille Blanjean also have a chance to be crowned World Champion, but this will depend on the results of the others.
