Star-studded FWT21 line-up announced as legends, rookies and wildcards prepare to battle for the world title

The FWT21 roster is now official and promises more insane action with a generous mixture of experienced and fresh-faced athletes

(lifePR) ( Verbier, Switzerland, )
With the FWT announcing the full roster for 2021, many questions resurface. Will one of the legends regain the title? Will an impressive rookie shock to win in their maiden year? Or will one of the wildcards prove their inclusion and take the trophy. Only the world’s best big mountain athletes can answer these questions as they get primed for the FWT21 season.

48 athletes in four categories – 7 snowboard women, 9 snowboard men, 8 ski women and 24 ski men – will fight to lift the trophy as the FWT champion. But the highly diverse field from all reaches of the globe guarantee this won’t be an easy feat. And surely last year’s world champions – Marion Haerty (FRA-snowboard), Nils Mindnich (USA-snowboard), Arianna Tricomi (ITA-ski) and Isaac Freeland (USA-ski) – aren’t ready to let go of the sport’s most valuable prize.

Athletes will need to be on point from their very first turn. And with the cut now at the third stop, only 4 snowboard women, 6 snowboard men, 6 ski women and 13 ski men (totalling 29 riders) will get the opportunity to compete in the last two stops and the chance to stand on the podium.

Discover the names of the returning legends, tour wildcards and rookies.
