Winter 2019 is ready to launch with the upcoming Verbier Freeride Week in January 4th. A newly added 1* event will attract further rookie riders, while the new generation of under-14s will surely continue to impress.
Verbier, a name forever preserved in freeride folklore will host riders from 22 nations from across the globe including Iceland, Lebanon, New Zealand, USA and many more. A variety of Freeride Junior Tour
(FJT) and Freeride World Qualifier
(FWQ) competitions will kick-off the 2019 season in Verbier, where eventually the Freeride World Tour
(FWT) champions will be crowned later in the season.
Due to the huge interest in the event, a new FWQ1* competition has been added for 2019, giving further opportunities for rookie riders to earn some early season points. The 1* competition will kick off the Verbier Freeride Week on January 4-5, followed by three 2* events, and finally a junior 2* competition on January 12-13. In addition to these epic contests there will be ski testing available, yoga and freeride guiding with FWT champion and Verbier local, Emilien Badoux (SUI) and a rider’s lounge with a video screen to watch all the action at Pub Mont Fort.
