Mountain Guide Dies In Avalanche While Securing FWT Venue In Andorra

It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a FWT mountain guide who perished in an avalanche while attempting to secure a possible venue for the upcoming competition at Vallnord-Arcalís in Andorra.

The Freeride World Tour announced the tragic incident on its Facebook page saying, “despite the rapid response of the rescuers from Vallnord-Arcalís and the mountain rescue group (GRM) of Andorra, the injuries sustained by the victim were fatal.”

Working in big mountain terrain is extremely dangerous and these unfortunate events should remind us that we are never in complete control when Mother Nature is concerned.

*Our deepest condolences go out to the victim’s friends and family.
