2024 Freeride world champion

FWT veteran Hedvig Wessel claimed her maiden FWT title in the Ski Women’s, after multiple runner-up finishes in the past. She has worked extremely hard over the years, and has been a key contributor to pushing the level of the sport.


World Champion

It has been such a fight for the last five years to get to this position. It’s all worth it with the win. I want to thank everyone who has been there and supported me on this journey. We were unsure what the conditions would be like, but I had some good plans in place. I think this will be a good ending to my story on the FWT, but I want to keep skiing and watch the level continue to increase year after year.
