The highlight of the 2013 FWQ competition season is most probably the Verbier Qualifier Week organized by the Freeride World Tour between the 14th and the 20th of January 2013.
This full week of freeriding competition will allow amateur riders to score 3 FWQ results, all in one week and shall give the possibility to a great number of riders to enter the FWQ ranking and seeding lists.
The Verbier Freeride Week is there to provide a solution to the growing demand. 6 competitions over 7 days will be organized. Riders who subscribe for the full week will get a priority, even for those who don’t have any FWQ points.
Riders will be able to enter a maximum of 3 events ; either Monday, Wednesday and Saturday or Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
The spots not used by riders attending to the whole week, will be distributed as usual, using the seeding list, for riders willing to enter in only one or two events.
There will be 100 spots per competition day. The entry fee is 80€ per competition (277€ for the full week) including ski pass, plus the evacuation insurance. Furthermore, accommodation at the Châble is as low as CHF 50.- breakfast included.
The events will unfold on faces in the whole Verbier St-Bernard destination, in resorts such as Verbier, Bruson, La Tsoumaz and Vichères.
A free ski and snowboard test will be held over the week, with over 10 brands participating.
Since riders will be competing only every second day, animations and parties will also be organized.
Registration is now open on the Freeride World Tour website.
