Valais: the Ultimate Playground for Freeride athletes

What makes the Valais region so special?

Is it the multitude of ski resorts, the boundless freeride terrains, the diverse landscapes, the year-round opportunity to switch sports, the community, or simply the fact that it’s one of the most stunning places on Earth?

Martin Bender and Eva Battolla, two riders from the region who compete in the FWT Pro and Qualifier series, share their experiences growing up in this area and practicing sports at a high level amidst peaks and endless opportunities.

While the top reason remains uncertain, one thing is clear - Valais is a paradise for athletes and sports enthusiasts in search of the perfect playground.
