In case you missed the big news earlier this week, one of the most influential skiers of all time will be throwing down against the world’s top freeriders during the 2019 Freeride World Tour.
Tanner Hall (34), one of the most decorated veterans of freestyle and freeride skiing in history, will be granted a season wild card to compete alongside the planet’s top freeriders on the five-stop international tour in 2019.
Originating from Kalispell, Montana, with a career spanning nearly two decades, Hall is often credited with being one of the original prodigies of the freeski movement; pushing the limit with never-before-seen tricks and progressive lines that earned him admiration and accolades across ski disciplines. Tanner came into the spotlight at a young age, with victories in freestyle skiing competitions that paved his way to groundbreaking movie segments and numerous X Games gold medals in slopestyle and halfpipe.

Hall’s expertise more recently has evolved to the backcountry, where he is known for combining his ultra-smooth riding style with technical lines and stylish airs. With such vast list of accomplishments and a wide quiver of freestyle expertise, Hall will undoubtedly be one of the top names to watch on next seasons’ tour.
