The Freeride World Tour is back! With the season opener in Baqueira Beret in the Pyrenees of Spain and the return of the format with two runs in Fieberbrunn, this year's tour will take the sport to new heights!

After two explosive events in the Pyrenees, the tour heads across the Atlantic to the freeride haven of Kicking Horse, where athletes will have their final chance to lock in points before the cut. The event was postponed a month due to mediocre early season snow, but now the Canadian Rockies are ready with epic conditions awaiting the world’s best freeriders.

Max Palm - Freeride World Tour

Max was born into a life in the mountains, with a triple Scandinavian big-mountain champion mother and a mountain guide father. Despite his young age, he is already one of the most decorated freeriders. He has won the Freeride Junior Tour twice in a row, is the youngest skier to ever win the Scandinavian Big Mountain Championship, and is the current Junior World Champion. He made history as a "rookie wildcard" by winning a FWT stage with the first double backflip ever. Despite his style being reckless in many ways, he is always modest and friendly. Max was born and raised in Chamonix and has Swedish parents, which explains how he can combine the typical Scandinavian style with the big-mountain knowledge and style of the Alpine region.

Arianna Tricomi is one of the most successful participants of the Freeride World Tour and has won the overall ranking three times in a row from 2018 to 2020. As a passionate surfer, she brings a playful, surfing-inspired style to the mountains, making even the toughest lines look fun to ski. For the 30-year-old, fun and freedom are at the center of skiing. She loves to do all kinds of freeriding - whether it's skiing down steep walls like the Bec de Roses in Verbier, cruising through powdery tree runs in Japan, spring-slush cruising, or jumping in the park and backcountry. When she's not competing in the FWT, she's skiing and filming with her friends and fully enjoying the Italian lifestyle.
