FIS Acquires the Freeride World Tour

Today, the Freeride World Tour announced a merger with the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS). FIS is the international governing body for competitive skiing and snowboarding, founded in 1924 during the first Winter Olympic Games in Chamonix, France. The organization manages the disciplines of Alpine Skiing, Cross-Country Skiing, Ski Jumping, Nordic Combined, Freestyle Skiing and Snowboarding. 

FWT will continue the daily operation of the Tour, and the competition format will remain the same during this upcoming season. FIS will focus on marketing and governance of the FWT. 

We are thrilled to be joining forces with FIS. For our freeride athletes and event organizers, being under the umbrella of the largest winter sports International Federation, recognized by the International Olympic Committee, will give them more access to support, increased visibility and additional resources that will ultimately allow the FWT and all of its stakeholders to grow.

- Nicolas Hale-Woods (FWT CEO)

Being a part of FWT and seeing the sport develop over so many years makes this feel like a natural next step to take. It will be interesting to see where it leads us and I think it will bring more recognition to the sport and all the benefits that will come with it.

In 2019, the FWT was acquired by the International Ski Federation (FIS), the governing body of alpine skiing.  cbd oil side effects This acquisition will help the FWT to continue to grow and develop the sport of Freeride skiing.

The experience is very unique, it reminds me of the fun feeling when I first played gold miner game with my friends. Gold bars excite me very much.
