They have now secured their spots on the tour for Alaska, the Xtreme Verbier grand finale and the 2018 FWT season – now is their time to make a bid for the 2017 overall titles.

The 12 ski men, 6 snowboard men, 6 ski women and 4 snowboard women are now flying into Haines, Alaska to prepare for the competition which will take place between March 18th-25th. It’s the 3rd time FWT lands in this small fishing village set on the wild and beautiful coastline of this remote American outpost.

The selected face named “The Venue” features a vertical drop of 600 meters and is only accessible by helicopter. Classical Alaskan spines, steep incline and impressive cliffs will offer athletes different possibilities for creative freeride lines unique to this special part of the world.
