Giro presents The Freeride World Tour: Part 1 - Engrained in Verbier

Verbier, a small classic ski town surrounded by the majestic Swiss Alps, is recognized as the capitol of freeriding in Europe with endless peaks and off-piste skiing. Last winter the Giro ski team experienced all aspects of Verbier from the drama and focus of competing in the Freeride World Tour to the sheer fun of blasting through natural powder terrain.

Drew Tabke, George Rodney and Reine Barkered, three of the top five ranked competitors on the Freeride World Tour, share an inside look at what it takes to compete at the Verbier final stop. Experience the planning and focus our riders put into the weeklong event leading up to one final focused run on Bec de Rosses peak. Despite the preparation and the drama, it’s worth it for these riders – this need for progressions and overcoming fear is engrained in them just like their love for skiing and winter adventure.

With the event in the rear view mirror, Callum Pettit and Ingrid Backstrom join the crew to answer the mountain’s call to explore the vast terrain surrounding Verbier. They score blower powder in the trees, find natural road gaps, blast wide open turns, drop cliffs, and ski high-alpine lines. The crew is reminded that at its heart this trip ecompasses what freesking is all about – personal progression balanced by good times with friends in epic natural terrain.
