Follow the action, either on the site or via livestream, and we can promise you freeriding at an extraordinary level of skill and expertise. Peak Performance makes, and has always made, products for this area of skiing, and this season will be very exciting. Among great results from our team skiers last year, the Freeride World Champion title won by Loic Collomb Patton stands out. Will Loic or any other team rider make it to the top in 2017?
The season opener of the Freeride World Tour 2017 in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France, was unfortunately cancelled due to lack of snow and poor conditions in the mountains. The FWT guides did everything they could to find other suitable places outside the skiing area, but strong winds eliminated every possible option for an out-of-bounds venue. After strong efforts and careful assessment, they therefore had to make the decision to reschedule the first stop in Chamonix. Organizers simply couldn´t guarantee the safety of the riders. Therefore the current plan is to stage the 1st postponed stop alongside the 2nd stop in Andorra.
On January 26 a beautiful ceremony was held in loving memory of Matilda Rapaport and Estelle Ballet. The memorial took place in amazing scenery in Brevent, Chamonix, where all riders and officials were present.
Despite the rescheduling of the world’s best-loved freeride competition, cheerful events, music, ski- activities and tests still took place in the town of Chamonix. All FWT athletes also attended a successful safety workshop to ensure the highest level of safety during the 2017 global tour.
