The penultimate event of the Freeride World Tour went down on the famous Tram Face in Squaw Valley in the USA last weekend.
At this stop, especially the female competitors impressed spectators and judges likewise by choosing creative lines and jumping the same cliffs as the male competitors. For the snowboarders it was Shannan Yates (USA) who scored most points, followed by former freestyler Aline Bock (GER) and Susan Mol (USA).
The men were once again dominated by the unstoppable Xavier De Le Rue (FRA), who went for a difficult line with many features, starting off with a faultless 3. He was followed by the Americans Matt Annetts and Ryland Bell.
So the eyes of the freeride world are now all fixed on the final event of the tour, the Nissan Xtreme by Swatch in Verbier, March 20th.
