This year will include six stops, offering riders four competitions before the cut. Those who rack up

Stop 1: Baqueira Beret Pro, January 27 – February 1
The FWT kicks off in the Spanish Pyrenees for the third consecutive year, a location that never
disappoints with its epic terrain backed up by an incredible local crowd. Competition returns to the
Bacivér face, where we’ll get the first glimpse of the new class of rookies, and see if they can hold
their own against the established roster and returning champions.

Stop 2: Ordino Arcalís Pro, February 1 – 7
Back-to-back action in the Pyrenees as the FWT moves to neighboring Andorra, where Ordino
Arcalís will host the world’s best once again. Riders have been putting their mark on these mountains
since 2015, and will be treated to the incredible venue of the Pic de les Planes, a creative big
mountain haven with all the ingredients needed for playful, freeride action.

Stop 3: Kicking Horse Golden BC Pro, February 14 – 20
The tour then heads across the Atlantic to North America, returning to the ever-consistent snowpack
of British Columbia, Canada. The competition is always intense at Kicking Horse Golden BC, which
has hosted the world’s best since 2018. Action will likely be held on the formidable Ozone face, an
extreme venue providing ample opportunities for riders to send it large.

Stop 4: Georgia Pro, March 1 – 7
Nestled at the intersection of Europe and Asia, Georgia will host the last stop before the cut, and the
ultimate chance for riders to qualify for the FWT Finals. Georgia boasts a rich tapestry of traditions
and a culture renowned for its hospitality, as well as the imposing Caucasus Mountains, which contain
multiple peaks over 5,000 meters. The country has successfully hosted FWT Qualifier events during
the last two seasons, demanding the attention of the international ski community. Both Tetnuldi and
Mestia have emerged as prominent freeride destinations, offering vast big mountain terrain that
enjoys copious amounts of snowfall over the winter months.
The Cut will be after stop four, before the final two events that make up the FWT Finals. Athletes can
qualify using their three best results from the first four events.

Stop 5: Fieberbrunn Pro, March 12 – 18
After the inaugural event in Georgia, the best of the best will head to Austria for the first FWT Final, a
location that has been a tour mainstay since 2013. Competition returns to the ever-impressive
Wildseeloder face, a truly intimidating big mountain venue, where riders will enjoy a two-run format to
impress judges in their bid for the title.

Stop 6: YETI Xtreme Verbier, March 23 – 31
A freeride theater that needs no introduction, the Grand Finale – as always – will be held on the iconic
Bec des Rosses in Verbier. Dangerous snow conditions forced the event to be canceled last season,
but the FWT is ready to return to a place it has called home since 1996, and where the next four world
champions will be crowned.

Lock in these dates to watch the best freeride athletes push each other to the limits in the high
mountains. The roster will be announced soon, so stay tuned to FWT social channels and
www.freerideworldtour.com, or subscribe to the FWT newsletter to keep up with all the latest news.
