Max Hitzig Run – 2024 YETI Xtreme Verbier

Max Hitzig (GER) delivered a full-throttle line to take second spot today, which was enough to claim the FWT World Title. He found a spicy entrance to the central couloir, skiing with zero hesitation and linking two big cliffs before spinning a clean 360 and another cliff to finish.


I can’t believe it. I was so nervous before my line. I have worked so hard for this. The level is getting so high, so I know it is getting harder to claim the title every year, which makes me happy to win it this year. I was scared to ski the Bec des Rosses from the top, but when you are in competition mode you just go full send!
