The Freeride World Tour Dates landed on our proverbial doorstep this morning so here's the good news. There's 5 events this year, with classic venues Chamonix and Verbier making return alongside last year's success stories Vallnord, Andora and Haines, Alaska. I was lucky enough to get to the finals last year in Verbier and I can 100% honestly say, if you get a chance to go to one of the events, do it. The level of riding beggars belief and it's something everyone should try and see at least once. The tour works as follows:
