FWT_verbierThe Freeride World Tour, the competitive pinnacle of backcountry skiing and snowboarding, has announced a three-year sponsorship deal with Swatch, securing the future of the event.

With the announcement comes news of two new destinations on the tour, Revelstoke in Canada and Courmayeur in Italy. These join the existing stops of Chamonix (France), Røldal (Norway), Fieberbrunn (Austria), and Verbier (Switzerland).

If you are in any of those resorts when the Freeride World Tour comes to town, be sure to check out the action. Some of the world’s greatest riders tackle some of the world’s most intimidating mountain faces, and do it with style, speed and spirit. The lines they pick through gullies, over cliffs and down impossibly steep-looking pockets of snow are breathtaking. Check out the video teaser below to see what we mean.

The name to watch out for on this year’s tour is James Stentiford, a 39-year-old Brit who came third in Chamonix last season.
