Fieberbrunn Pro to run Thursday with an exciting new announcement

The Fieberbrunn Pro has been rescheduled for this Thursday, March 16, after Mother Nature halted proceedings earlier in the week.

The competition will be shortened to a one-run format as, directly after, a new event will take place – the Fieberbrunn Challenger – for athletes of region 1 of the FWT Challenger series. This news comes after the unfortunate cancellation of the Jasna and Gurgl FWT Challenger events due to unfavorable conditions, further indicating the difficult winter in Europe. 

This decision was made from discussions between the FWT, local authorities and Open Faces, showing their ongoing support and commitment to the freeride community and the sport’s evolution. The event, which will take place on the Wildseeloder following the Fieberbrunn Pro, will allow riders to earn additional points to secure a spot on the FWT24. This will be the first time in history that a Qualifier or Challenger event runs on the same venue as a Pro competition on the same day.

Fresh snow delivered just in time for the competition!

The snow finally arrived in the last couple of days, with around 20 cm of fresh powder blanketing the venue. Safety teams and FWT organizers have worked hard to secure the mountain, and competition is now ready to fire in spectacular conditions.

The ever-intimidating Wildseeloder will host the world’s best athletes, where they will have the option of two start gates – dropping at either 2,119 meters or 2,090 meters – with over 580 vertical meters to ride at an average pitch of 48 degrees. This will provide the perfect playground for the first showdown of the FWT Finals, as the title race heats up between current rankings leaders – Valentin Rainer (AUT), Addison Rafford (USA), Ludovic Guillot-Diat (FRA) and Katie Anderson (CAN) – and a long list of talented riders not far behind. To be crowned FWT23 world champion, three out of five results will count, so the pressure is on leading into the event.
