Results and Replay: FWT21 Stop #2 in Andorra

While the official first stop of the 2021 Freeride World Tour might have been canceled due to COVID-19, it didn’t stop the athletes and crew from spending an extra few days in Andorra to put on a replacement event that outdid the first stop, held last week! Again, the athletes dropped into The Port del Rat face – this time with a third start gate offering further creative options and a fresh layer of snow to entice the athletes to go even bigger. And go bigger they did. Congratulations to Blake Moller, Marion Haerty, Andrew Pollard and Elisabeth Gerritzen for taking the top spots!

Snowboard Men:

The rookie Blake Moller went one better today with a power run, including a 360 into the venue’s steepest section, a 180 into a double with another 180 out to take the top spot. Sammy Luebke came out with aggression, airing into the top chute with some serious heat, then put down a characteristic fluidic line, finishing with a solid 360 to take second. Finally, Victor De Le Rue linked a 360 with a progression of airs to take third.

Snowboard Women:

Marion Haerty is absolutely on one this season, taking her second win of the Tour with loads of airtime and technical riding. Second place went to Katie Anderson for an aggressive fall-line run, and Erika Vikander grabbed third place with high-speed turns up top and a stylish method down low.

Ski Men:

Young gun Andrew Pollard proved he’s pretty much a FWT veteran at this point, taking the win with a full throttle run including a 360 and several XXL airs down low. Kristoffer Turdell got redemption on his backflip cliff from Stop #1, stomping it into a rocky zone before exiting at full speed to take second. Third place went to Reine Barkered for a similar run including a backflip and high-speed turns out the bottom.

Ski Women:

Elisabeth Gerritzen took a much-deserved win with a textbook display of big-mountain style, including a 360 over exposure and high-speed technical turns. Second place went to Juliette Willman for putting down the gas on the whole venue and a massive double drop. Tracy Chubb took home third place, linking multiple airs over exposure before rocketing to the finish line.

Every year come spring, we love to see some of the world’s best freestyle riders get together atop a glacier in the Alps to ski and ride a custom-built terrain park that’s straight from their wildest dreams. The 2021 Audi Nines presented by Falken is officially underway in snowy Crans-Montana, Valais, Switzerland, and the course looks absolutely insane! Check out a POV preview of the course with Halldór Helgason, Jesper Tjäder, Boris Mouton, and Nico Porteous. Over the next few days, we’ll be

Inside the Mind of Sam Kuch

I've never watched any  footage of Sam Kuch skiing and thought "yeah that was cool, I guess?" Plain and simple, the dude throws down. Just a few short years ago, Kuch was working construction and living the ski bum life up in BC. After being discovered as a master of the planks, Kuch skyrocketed his way to being one of the best freeskiers in the game. Whether he's dropping pillows or hucking threes off of cliffs, there's no shortage of style from Kuch. This short film from Arc'teryx takes

As winter backcountry users, we’re already pretty concerned about our environment, because keeping it healthy is integral to keeping our playgrounds around for as long as possible. While we might be largely focused on issues like climate change, there’s a lot more to environmental stewardship than we might think. One of those things - one that’s particularly important in our local playground of the Tetons - is protecting the area’s bighorn sheep population. Denizens of the Steep explores the
