FWT Management SA, the organizing body of the Swatch Freeride World Tour, Freeride World Qualifiers (FWQ), and Freeride Junior Tour (FJT) has renewed a contract with Vallnord-Arcalís, Andorra (for the 2018, 2109 and 2020 seasons). This agreement will ensure that 1 stop on the FWT will continue to host freeride competitions for the upcoming three seasons, reports FWT.
With nearly limitless options for competition faces on highly-featured terrain, it was an important decision to continue hosting events in Europe’s Southern freeride ski capital.
“Vallnord-Arcalís, as the only FWT stage in the Pyreenes, is delighted to renew this collaboration that allows us to consolidate Vallnord-Arcalís as the freeride reference in southern Europe. We are proud to contribute with Freeride World Tour to develop the great potential of this extraordinary sport”, – says Xabier Ajona, Vallnord-Arcalís General Manager.
According to Nicolas Hale-Woods, FWT CEO, “the host resort renewal with Vallnord-Arcalís/Andorra is great news. The resort features state of the art mountains and snow conditions, and the riders and crew loved the Andorran hospitality these last years. The perfect mix for a successful event!”
