The 2022 Freeride World Tour kicked off in January in ist 15th season in January – as usual with the best freeriders all over the globe! Right at the beginning a brand-new stop in Baqueira Beret (ESP) awaits the athletes. The second station in Ordino Arcalís (AND) surprised with new podiums in all four disciplines. Another innovation is the changed competition format: The Cut is already made after the 3rd stop in Kicking Horse (CAN) instead of after the 4th as before. The best 26 Rider (12 ski men, 5 ski women, 5 snowboard men, 4 snowboard women) qualify for the both final events of the season: The FWT Finals with stop #4 in Fieberbrunn and stop#5, the legendary „Xtreme Verbier“. Solely in Fieberbrunn a best-of-two-runs format applies: Instead of one single run each rider hast wo attempts – only the top score counts.
