Since 2008, the Freeride World Tour has been a major international event that gathers top-ranking freeriders. For the first time, male and female skiers and snowboarders are touring the world together to win the World Championship title.

The competition will take place on the Pentes de l Hotel at the Brevent ski area where racers choose their line. The descent is judged by a panel of judges posted at the bottom of the face. The public is invited to watch the race from the competition village, setup at the ski resort. A sponsor village will be installed downtown Chamonix, with a giant screen, various events, opening and award ceremonies.
