The final event of FWT23, the YETI Xtreme Verbier, is confirmed for tomorrow Tuesday, March 28th.
The Freeride World Tour CEO Nicolas Hale-Woods, Mountain Guide, and Commissioner went up to the mountain today to assess the conditions and check the face.
Despite the strong winds gusts of the past two days, the recent snowfall guarantees prime-looking conditions on the Bec des Rosses. In order to ensure safe conditions to all the riders, safety works which include bombing, will be performed tomorrow morning at first lights.

Three world titles at stake
The YETI Xtreme Verbier never fails to disappoint and, with world titles on the line, the intensity and pressure are turned up to the max. Katie Anderson (CAN) has already locked in her maiden FWT crown, but will be hungry to make it four wins out of five for the season.
The world title race in the other categories remains tight, and Ludovic Guillot-Diat (FRA), Justine Dufour-Lapointe (CAN), and Valentin Rainer (AUT) will have to hold their nerves and deliver one more performance to secure overall victory.
