Swatch Freeride World Tour Fieberbrunn Kitzbüheler Alpen 2017

High-performance sport and an extensive event programme. Also in 2017, the world’s best freeriders wage the struggle at Fieberbrunn’s local mountain, the Wildseeloder.

As a prime example for freeride competitions in the country, the Big Mountain event is also the Freeride Worldtour’s only world cup station in Austria.

SWATCH FREERIDE WORLD TOUR FIEBERBRUNN KITZBÜHELER ALPEN 2017

The SWATCH FREERIDE WORLD TOUR  (FWT) is the premier big mountain freeskiing and snowboarding tour in the world, featuring the sport’s top athletes competing in the world’s best mountain resorts. Created in 2008, the FWT became even more global in 2012 following the union of North American-based Freeskiing World Tour, The North Face® Masters of Snowboarding, and the European-based Swatch Freeride World Tour. Besides the successful implementation of this truly global FWT, the increase of Freeride World Qualifier (FWQ) and Junior Freeride Tour events in recent years shows that the base of the sport is growing exponentially.

The FWT represents top-level big mountain riding, the most progressive and pure discipline of skiing and snowboarding. Riders use the entire mountain as their canvas, from cliffs, cornices and chutes to powder fields and trees. FWT events have invitation-only athlete rosters but the full FWQ series allows athletes to compete in 1 to 4-star level events and qualify for the FWT the following season. All FWT competition venues are handpicked for their terrain, as well as their steepness, and offer a wide range of options to those competing
