For many of the world’s best skiers– getting the chance to ski on the Freeride World Tour is a dream come true. Turns out, a few skiers and riders are realizing that dream today after the FWT announced its 2017 roster and schedule yesterday.
The new roster includes up and comers Griffin Dunne and Ryan Faye of the United States in addition to riders Audrey Herbert of Canada and Davey Baird of Homer, Alaska. Also, look for Logan Pehota to make a run after falling just behind Loic Collomb-Patton championship run last year. In the women’s division, Jackie Paaso and Audrey Hebert are set to make runs at the ski and snowboard FWT championships while Ralph Backstrom and Sammy Luebke lead the stacked American crew through the FWT men’s snowboard division.
