Return of the Freeride World Tour in 2013
July 20 2012
Revelstoke Mountain Resort in partnership with the Revelstoke Accommodation Association is excited to announce the return of the Freeskiing World Tour in 2013!
With the addition of the Swatch Freeride World Tour last winter and now the amalgamation with The North Face Masters of Snowboarding, the new "Swatch Freeride World Tour by The North Face" is sure to be a spectacular event. The tour circuit will hit up 6 world class venues with Revelstoke Mountain Resort as the first stop on the list - the ONLY resort in Canada and 1 of 2 in North America to host this incredible 5-star championship event. Revelstoke Mountain Resort is thrilled to see the FWT return this winter with even more talent (if you can believe it) than ever before!
The success of joining with the Swatch Freeride at Revelstoke last winter was noted by American skier Drew Tabke in the official release from Mountain Sports International;
"The best event last year was the combined event at Revelstoke. This event represented the ideal outcome of this merger of the two tours—a legitimate representation of the world’s best riders competing on a world-class venue."
With the addition of The North Face of Snowboarding, the calibre of athletes and their incredible athletic demonstrations should make for an exhilarating spectacle!
