At the finals of the SWATCH FREERIDE WORLD TOUR 2014 BY THE NORTH FACE® (FWT) on Verbier’s mighty Bec des Rosses north face, riders will fight for the world titles in freeride skiing and snowboarding. Thanks to the recent heavy snowfalls, the 34 participants and the spectators can look forward to great conditions at this concluding event of the FWT season.

For the public, the lifts will open at 7:45 AM CET, so that you can be at Col des Gentianes on time for the show.

The competition will be broadcast live on the Internet on www.freerideworldtour.com from 9:00 AM CET
