Watch: FWT Competitor Sends it to the Moon with Laid-Out Backy

The Freeride World Tour's stop at Vallnord-Arcalís in Andorra finally went down on Tuesday after a few days of being put on hold due to conditions. It appears those down days had the competitors chomping at the bit to get on the mountain, because Drew Tabke just ripped off one of the gnarliest FWT runs we've ever seen. 

RELATED: Here's what goes into a FWT score

Tabke's hairy-as-hell chute entrance through a vicious scree field is enough to make your jaw hit the floor. The ultra laid-out backflip is just the icing on the cake, and ultimately won Tabke the Radical Moment of the Vallnord stop.

Somehow, Tabke didn't grab the overall title for the stop, with Kristofer Terdell taking the crown for the men's ski division, while Sammy Leubke took the men's snowboard title, Manuela Mandl took the women's snowboard title and Arianna Tricomi claimed the women's ski title.

Personally, I don't understand how the judges didn't immediately halt the competition, and crown Tabke the Grand Overlord Supreme of the Freeride World Tour and the entire sport of skiing, but then again I'm not well-versed in the scientific manner in which a FWT judge determines a score.

he fell, nothing scientific about it. would have been a contender if the cat track didn’t catch him.

Real Skifi Tries 21 Tricks on the Same Rail

The Real Skifi crew put the creativity back into skiing. In an era of competition slopestyle runs that look like Olympic aerials skiing, the crew of Finnish misfits give skiing a breath of fresh air. This time, the guys try 21 different tricks on the same handrail. Oh, and did we mention theres no snow in sight, and the handrail leads straight into a river? Looks like a great way too cool off to us.

Ditched: Speedflyer and Skier Go Head to Head

We’ve all had the following conversation: “you’re still in bed dude? Come on—I’m outside waiting!” There’s always at least one friend who just can’t seem to get their act together when you’re trying to head up for the mountains. Skier Jake Hopfinger and speedflyer Hayes Majerus know this dynamic all too well, in fact, it’s so ingrained into their normal routine that it served as the basis for Benshi Creative’s latest short film, Ditched. Benshi Creative is a two-man team comprised of Cameron

Far Out Places: The Purcell Mountains and British Columbia

In Canada, pilgrimages to backcountry huts are a fairly common pastime during the wintertime. The idea is to use these little structures as a strategic basecamp for foot-powered missions and TGR is no stranger to the remarkable landscape of British Columbia. For this year’s Far Out segment in the Purcell Mountain range, which are home to both world-class heli-skiing and the resort Kicking Horse, we opted to do as the locals do with some Canadian-style hut accommodations. In classic TGR
