Save the date: 30 Days Until Launch of FWT22!

The final countdown to Freeride World Tour 2022 begins…

In just 30 days Freeride World Tour launches its 2022 season! With deep snow already blanketing competition venues in the Pyrenees, the Alps, and British Columbia, a boundary-pushing athlete roster, plus exciting format modifications and surprise Wild Cards, the 15th edition of the legendary Freeride series is primed to be the best season yet!

 

The 2022 Tour begins with a brand new stop: Baqueira Beret, Spain (22 - 28 January). The thriving snowsports resort in the Spanish Pyrenees looks to make a strong debut as an FWT host resort, with excellent snow conditions already established on the potential venues, and representation from explosive local skier Aymar Navarro (ESP).
