YETI Xtreme Verbier confirmed for Friday, March 22, 2024

The final event of the FWT by Peak Performance season is only days away

The YETI Xtreme Verbier has been confirmed for this Friday, March 22, marking the final event of an incredible 2024 FWT by Peak Performance season. Competition will therefore happen one day ahead of the scheduled weather window, as high winds and snowfalls are predicted afterwards, with no clear window in the following week. Organizers have concluded that Friday looks like the safest and best option for competition, with calm winds and only a thin cloud layer predicted.

THE YETI XTREME VERBIER Returns to the Summit of the Bec des ROsses for the first time since 2018

In an exciting development, Ski and Snowboard Men can drop from the top of the Bec des Rosses for the first time since 2018, while the Ski and Snowboard Women will start from the Petit Bec. Conditions over the last five years have been challenging – rendering the top of the mountain unsafe for freeride competition – but riders will return to the peak this year, providing some of the most technical and exposed terrain in any freeride competition on the planet. This will prove especially daunting for some of the younger, less experienced athletes on the roster, who will surely be feeling the added pressure of competing in the biggest freeride event on the calendar, on the most iconic freeride face, in the FWT Finals.

Three World Titles are on the line in Verbier

World titles are the line for many athletes, apart from the Snowboard Men’s category, in which Victor De le Rue sealed his third title in Fieberbrunn last week. It’s a two-horse race in the Ski Men’s between Max Hitzig and Marcus Goguen, with the former a clear favorite to take the crown. The other side of the draw is a bit more open, with four possible champions in the Ski Women’s – Astrid Cheylus is leading the pack – and the Spaniard Núria Castán Barón holds a narrow lead over Anna Martinez and Erin Sauve in the Snowboard Women’s. Check out all the possible scenarios of who could win the title in Verbier on Friday here.
