The season is slowly coming to an end and that means the finals of the Freeride World Tour are coming up!
Peak of a season full of extraordinary freeriding will be the Nissan Xtreme Verbier 2011 by Swatch, which is coming back to the legendary Bec des Rosses on Saturday, 19 March (weather permitting).
From its earliest incarnation the Verbier Xtreme, the world’s longest-running, most prestigious freeriding event is now entering its 16th consecutive season of competition on Verbier’s notorious Bec des Rosses.
Only the top 13 men skiers, seven men snowboarders, and five women skiers and snowboarders have qualified to compete on the Bec des Rosses this weekend. Following this event, the riders’ best four results will be used to determine the 2011 Freeride World Champion in each category: ski men, ski women, snowboard men and snowboard women.
In addition to the event’s cash prize of $60,000USD, each 2011 Freeride World Champion will also drive away from the event in a brand new NISSAN JUKE.
