The biggest off piste competition in the world, The Freeride World Tour, charged through the mountains of Andorra this week and Ski Club’s Sophie Mead was at the finish line in Ordino, Arcalís to capture the action.
The contest pits the most talented freeride ski and snowboard athletes against each other on steep, challenging mountain faces across the globe. Athletes descend the face looking for features to link and perform jumps, spins and flips whilst also maintaining control and style. The catch? They are not allowed to practice riding the face beforehand. They are only permitted to have a visual inspection of each mountain-top arena, with judges marking their score based on line choice, control, fluidity, air and style.
