FWT19 Crunch Time In Ordino-Arcalis Just Days Away

 The world’s best gather in Andorra to prepare for Crunch Time and the second to last event of the season in the Pyrenees freeride capital.

It’s that time of the season again when points mean everything: world title race, qualification for the finals in Verbier and the 2020 season. It’s with all of this on the line that sets the stage for what is sure to be a highly contested competition in the Pyrenean freeride capital of Ordino-Arcalís, during the March 2nd – 8th weather window. 

Big performances in Fieberbrunn has solidified the leaderboard with Markus Eder (ITA), Victor De Le Rue (FRA), Arianna Tricomi (ITA) and Marion Haerty (FRA) at the top of their respective categories. However, loads of stiff competition and point hungry athletes are close behind and local wildcard, Thomas Rich (ADR) will surely be looking to put on a show in front of his local crowd.

In addition to the main event, will be the FJT El Dorado 3* competition taking place March 2-3.  More info on that can be found here and here.

Along with the highly-anticipated showdown high up the mountain, fans and spectators alike will benefit from a full schedule of events throughout the week. The official ceremony in Ordino will kick things off on March 1st, in Plaça Major and the atmosphere will be buzzing as always in the event village in Arcalís from March 2-3. Activities and events will include a free ski test and the FWT Party in Ordino on Saturday, March 2nd.
