1st FWT event is getting ready to drop in less than 4 weeks
THE 2018 SEASON OF THE FREERIDE WORLD TOUR (FWT) IS GETTING READY TO DROP IN LESS THAN FOUR WEEKS!
In just 30 days the 2018 Freeride World Tour (FWT) will drop in at the first-ever tour event in Japan. From January 20-27 2018, the world’s 48 finest men and women freeride skiers and snowboarders will compete in the bottomless powder of the Japanese Alps and begin their quest to be the next FWT world champion.
The FWT will then cross the Pacific Ocean to Canada, for another new addition to the 2018 FWT map–the steep and burly snow covered faces of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, British Columbia.
As the world title races heat up, the European leg of the tour will kick off on March 1, 2018, at the big mountain Pyrenean venue at Vallnord-Arcalís, Andorra. Almost immediately following the action in Andorra, riders will face off in the Austrian skit resort Fieberbrunn on March 9 for their last chance to make the cut for the FWT finals in Verbier, Switzerland.
Indeed, on March 31st, a world champion in each category will be crowned at the Verbier Xtreme, following a showdown of the globe’s elite freeriders on the legendary Bec Des Rosses.
