Estelle is no stranger to freeride competition, as she has been a regular contender on the FWT Qualifiers since 2019, showing incredible progression year after year. In fact, she has numerous podium finishes during this time, culminating in a record year in 2022, when she finished second overall in Region 1 (Europe). Her highlights of last season include:

  • 1st at Verbier FWT Qualifier 4*
  • 1st at Open Faces Silvretta Montafon 4*
  • 2nd at Jasna Adrenalin 4* FWT Challenger
  • 2nd at Nendaz Freeride 4* FWT Challenger

Can she carry this form into 2023 and shake up the already talent-packed roster? No doubt, she has proved herself worthy of competing at the highest level, and she will certainly be one to watch.
