The Swatch Freeride World Tour 2011/2012 concludes this weekend in Verbier, Switzerland. The Xtreme Verbier competition is bringing the best freeskiiers and snowboarders in the world to one venue to determine the best of the best. The standings are tight in men’s skiing with Kiwi Sam Smoothy and American Drew Tabke dominating the field this year. Angel Collinson from Utah is leading the women’s skiing field, and Jackson Hole’s own Crystal Wright grabbed a wildcard spot to compete this weekend. On the snowboard side, American Ralph Backstrom looks to get back in the action after missing a stop while filming with TGR and needs a victory to edge out Frenchman Jonathan Charlet. It’s going to be an action packed weekend in freeskiing with the Red Bull Cold Rush competition, which went down a couple of weeks ago, airs on NBC on Saturday as well. Get your popcorn ready.

From the Freeride World Tour: Big mountain competition just doesn‘t get better than on the intimidating Bec de Rosses in Verbier. The home of the “Xtreme” will again host the season‘s Freeride World Tour finals on the dauntingly steep and frighteningly jagged 500 metre rock-face. On a classic bluebird day, the 2011 event hosted 10,000 live spectators who were treated to simply the best competitive Freeriding in the world. The “Bec” never disappoints and with riders pushing the limits even further in 2012, we‘re guaranteed an epic.
