Whitelines Snowboarding

Xavier de le Rue

Xavier De Le Rue is an explorer – a true mountain lover whose passion for powder has achieved worldwide recognition. Considered one of the greatest freeriders on the planet, he won the Freeride World Tour three times in a row. He’s also been awarded the FWT’s ‘Best Line’ award twice.

Xavier started competing in bordercross in 1993 and won the legendary Mount Baker banked slalom in 2002. That stint in the FWT followed, as well as filming trips with Standard, but nowadays he just chases the pow – bagging first descents on some of the world’s most harrowing terrain. Svalbard, anyone?

While he no longer rides all of the stops on the FWT, he always comes back for the Verbier Xtreme.
