It’s official, The Freeride World Tour announced their 2019 event locations today. As Canadians we’re of course pumped to see Kicking Horse Mountain Resort back on the list after it’s first appearance last year – see you there!
FREERIDE WORLD TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT
“50 of the world’s best freeriders in four categories – ski men, ski women, snowboard men, and snowboard women – will face-off in big mountain arenas spanning across three continents for their chance to be Freeride World Champion. Following the fourth stop in Vallnord-Arcalís, Andorra only riders holding enough points will have the opportunity to compete in the final stop in Verbier, Switzerland in March.
With an incredible lineup of riders already confirmed – from hungry rookies, hard-charging
veterans and legendary wildcards such as Tanner Hall (USA) and Victor De Le Rue (FRA) – the FWT19 is shaping up to be an epic show.”
And we couldn’t agree more! Stacked venues and athletes, the Freeride World Tour is always one of the most thrilling ski events of the season.
