The Freeride World Tour has just confirmed that their third and second-to-last stop is a go-ahead for Saturday 13th of March. The final stop of the tour will take place in Verbier, France, with the exact date still to be confirmed. Therefore, the athlete qualifications for Verbier and FWT22 will happen after the Fieberbrunn competition on Saturday, March 13.

Check out the live stream below, on Saturday 13th of March at 8 AM CET / 7AM GMT.

As for the weather conditions, fresh snow has covered the Wildseeloder mountain, which has no doubt put a smile on the riders faces. We’ll also see Gigi Rüf back at the competition after not attending the first two stops in Andorra earlier this season.

Fieberbrunn, Austria – March 12, 2021: Fresh snow has restored the Wildseeloder to itself, priming it to host the world’s best freeriders. The safety team is hard at work securing the venue, with competition confirmed for Saturday, March 13 – ensuring this famous big mountain continues its streak of standout events since 2010.

Coline Ballet-Baz (FRA – ski women) will make her FWT and big mountain competition debut as an event wildcard. Winning the 2017 Big Air World Cup in Milan and being a candidate for selection for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, she is certainly no stranger to competition. But a severe injury (ruptured cruciate ligaments in her left knee) in December 2017 sidelined Coline and ended her Olympic campaign. At the end of the 2018/19 season, at just 27 years of age, she announced her retirement from competition to devote her time to making backcountry and freeride videos… SKIVAS is her latest project, which features ten female skiers and snowboarders during the 2019/20 season. The 100% female film proves that these ‘Ski/Divas’ are pushing the boundaries of freedom, creativity and sisterhood on and off the mountain. But can she bring this progression to the FWT main stage and challenge the established roster?

Roster Update

Due to injuries, the defending champion Isaac Freeland (USA – ski men), Claire McGregor (NZL – snowboard women), Raymond McDermott (USA – ski men) Olivia McNeill (CAN – ski women), and Carl Renvall will not participate in Fieberbrunn. But Gigi Rüf (AUT – snowboard men), Arianna Tricomi (ITA – ski women) and Konstantin Ottner (GER – ski men) all return to the roster and are firing to get some points on the board. Though with the weather predicted to deteriorate after the event, there will be no time for a second competition in Austria. This makes Saturday the last chance for all athletes to secure points, and their spot in the Xtreme Verbier 2021 and FWT22. Don’t forget to predict your winners at
