​FWT Kicks Off In Ordino Arcalís, Andorra from 20 - 26th February

The first stop of the Freeride World Tour 2021 kicks off in Ordino Arcalís, Andorra this weekend! With a weather window open from February 20-26th, athletes are chomping at the bit to get their competition season started. Check back for the livestream right here on TGR.

Update from the Freeride World Tour:

Ordino Arcalís has seen a lot of storm activity since December, with heavy snowfalls consistently blanketing the competition venue. The Andorran Pyrenees offers an amazing variety of terrain and venues that could host the competition. The FWT guides are already scoping the domain for the perfect competition face. Needless to say, the mountain is ready for the competition-hungry athletes to commence battle for the world title.

The defending world champions are all fired for Andorra and the USA is bringing the heat in both men’s categories with Isaac Freeland leading the rankings for ski men and Nils Mindnich in the top spot for snowboarding. Judges expect more amazing performances from French superstar Marion Haerty who is the current leader in women’s snowboarding and big things from extra talented Arianna Tricomi who flies the flag for Italy in women’s skiing. A new wave of impressive runs is on the cards from the current leaders who are ready to showcase their skills and dig deep into their bag of tricks to keep their crowns.

Keep an eye out for Aymar Navarro (ESP – Ski Men) and Nuria Castan Baron (ESP – Snowboard Women) who will hold nothing back to win in their home mountains of Pyrenees. Riders will also face local competition from Andorran rider Dani Fornell-Prat who has received an event wildcard. Dani will be the only Andorran representative in the event taking place in Ordino Arcalís for the seventh consecutive year.

Artful Powder Skiing From the Burrrlapz Boyss

The Line Skis crew, better know as Burrrlapz has released their second edit of the season and boy, is it sweet. They're calling their latest installment a "powder skiing art project" and to that, we respond, isn't all powder skiing art? However, their commitment to riding big pillow lines really does come across as pretty artful. While we've seen plenty of deep days of our own this season, we're still drooling over the bluebird skies and face shots this edit has to show. Backed with tunes

With no luck hitting the Cowboy, Hans realizes that the party is in the outdoors, getting after it. Armed with his 65 underfoot Rossignol skinny skis and renewed sense of
