Xtreme Verbier, the highlight of the season! The very last and most eagerly awaited stage of the FWT 2019 will take place as usual on the legendary face of the Bec des Rosses. After four competitions around the globe, the best freeriders in the world will meet in Verbier on 23 March to compete for the title of world champion!
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.

Mont Fort forms the heart of Verbier’s challenging skiing – there’s only one run down, but it’s steep, broad, bumped and over 1,300 metres from top to bottom.
