Three world title races and the most prestigious winners circle in competitive freeride skiing and snowboarding is on the mind of every athlete who qualified for the final stop of the Freeride World Tour (FWT), Xtreme Verbier, earlier this month in Ordino Arcalis, Andorra. With the March 23rd - 31st weather window rapidly approaching, the world’s best are preparing to descend Verbier’s legendary Bec des Rosses in what is sure to be an epic Grand Finale. While Marion Haerty’s win in Andorra clinched her world title campaign, three 2019 FWT champion crowns remain up for grabs.
In addition to the main event, there will be much more freeride to enjoy at the Freeride Junior Tour 3* events, which will happen either on March 23rd or 24th. More info on these can be found by clicking here and here.
Fans from around the world will get to enjoy good vibes all week long supplied by the Xtreme Verbier Party Festival, which will feature top bands, DJs and parties in the best bars and clubs of the resort. And as usual, there will be the Event Village in the centre of Verbier during the whole weekend and an exceptional Contest Village at the Audi Viewing Arena on competition day.
