Fifty-three of the world’s best freeriders will showdown on the technical terrain of the Vallnord-Arcalís resort on Thursday at 11am Central European Time. The roster of twenty-five ski men, eleven ski women, nine snowboard men, and eight snowboard women includes Taisuke Kusunoki (JPN), the winner of last month’s FWQ Freeride Hakuba, for the highly-anticipated Andorran stop of the Swatch Freeride World Tour.
Confirmation on Thursday morning
The competition face will be confirmed on Thursday morning at 9am Central European Time once FWT guides and event organizers make a final evaluation of the snow conditions on the potential venues. The 2017 season has been generous to the Pyrenees; recent weather systems have dumped ample snow on the peaks, offering ideal freeride conditions for the upcoming contest.
