Another year, another Freeride World Tour in Hakuba, Japan, and we’re excited to watch TGR Athlete and Sierra Nevada Ambassador Tim Durtschi drop fourth amidst an incredible field of athletes. This will be the first FWT event of the 2020 season and it all starts today. Watch live now through January 20th to see if we will have another Italian ski contingent on the podium after last years’ dominance by Arianna Tricomi and Markus Eder. Check out who on the snowboard side of freeride is going to give Russia’s Anna Orlova a run for her medal and who will take over the top spot from U.S.'s Travis Rice.

Tim and fellow TGR athletes Kai Jones and Colter Hinchliffe have been filming and enjoying some January japow over the last few weeks before freeride’s biggest competition series gets rolling. Their trip has been full of endless powder turns and incredible views with some obligatory backflips thrown in the mix. Who else is jealous?
