Freeskiers and snowboarders compete in the qualification of the world’s largest Freeride Tour FWQ event commencing Friday, January 31st. The qualifying event starts in the Corvatsch / Forcla region. The best 25 riders from qualification will get the chance to show their skills in the big finale on the Corvatsch’s north face on Saturday.
