The 2021 Freeride World Tour wrapped up last week with an incredible finale held in the infamous terrain of the Bec des Rosses in Verbier. With a vertical of 650 metres, steep lines down the face between 55 and 60 degrees, a variety of cliffs and a lot of exposure, the Bec des Rosses is regarded as the most challenging venue on the Tour.
It is intimidating and dangerous, but that doesn’t slow the athletes down and, as the highlight videos show, some of the world’s best skiers and snowboarders put on a display of progressive big mountain freeriding that hit another level. As the FWT commentators like to say, it’s all pretty rad.
