FWT14 Journal. Season 02, Ep. 28. Revelstoke Cancelled

Due to high avalanche danger on the Mac Daddy backcountry venue, organizers of the Swatch Freeride World Tour By The North Face (FWT) have decided to cancel the competition scheduled to take place outside of Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Forecasts do not suggest weather patterns will create suitable competition conditions within the designated weather window, March 10-15.

The Swatch Freeride World Tour By The North Face (FWT) is the premier big mountain freeskiing and snowboarding tour in the world, featuring the sport’s top athletes competing in the world’s best mountain resorts. Created in 2008, the FWT became even more global in 2012 following the union of North American-based Freeskiing World Tour, The North Face Masters of Snowboarding, and the European-based Swatch Freeride World Tour. The 2014 tour consists of six stops on two continents, with four events being held in Europe (Courmayeur, ITA, Chamonix-Mount-Blanc, FRA, Fieberbrunn PillerseeTal, AUT and Verbier, SUI) and two in North America (Snowbird instead of Kirkwood, USA and Revelstoke, CAN).
