Beyond the resort boundaries lies a world of untouched snow, and deep bowls of powder snow waiting to be ridden.
Interest and uptake in freeride skiing have sky-rocketed in recent years.

In principle, skis, boots and bindings have all progressed to allow us to explore further and easier than ever before.

The marriage of the two disciplines spawned the freetour revolution, a continuation of last year’s trend. Find out what to look out for in 2020 with our freeride buying guide, where we also examine some of this winter’s top-performing equipment.
