FWT 2017 – Haines, Alaska Winning Runs

If you missed last Friday’s steep and deep action from Haines, Alaska, fear not, it’s all still kicking about the internet for you to catch up.

For the fully committed, you can of course watch the full event replay, or for the abridged version, stick around here and see not only the winning runs, but a few GoPro angle versions too.

Above is Sammy Luebke‘s undoubtedly strong first place line, hurtling down both sections of the face, and throwing in a back three and method for bonus points to top fellow yank Ryland Bell‘s initial efforts; as well as seal the deal on his standing as overall tour leader and world champion.

 “I am pretty fired up that all this waiting time paid off. Conditions were blower and the safety seemed to be good; no avalanches, nobody got hurt, and everybody is happy!” – Sammy Luebke

3rd Place Run – Davey Baird

For the ladies, however, it’s all still to play for going into the final stop in Verbier, with Shannan Yates holding her line while the other three ladies’ falters were punished points-wise. Marion Haerty took second on the day, and will no-doubt be looking to cap off her generally strong competition next month in Switzerland. Tune in from April 1-9th to see how this year’s Freeride World Tour ends.

 “I just found out that I won. I am ecstatic! This is such a beautiful day. There were a lot of questions about the weather and what would actually happen; we had the fog and the waiting game and the snow was so so fantastic! I skied my line where I was planning on going. I may not have done it as smooth as I would have liked, but I had fun.” – Shannan Yates
