Arc 1950 Freeride Week

From January 14 to 20, 2023


The Freeride World Qualifier consists of fifty competitions run all over the world and bringing together the best freeriders. Each event is classified from 1* to 4*: the more stars a race has, the more points its winners will earn. The riders who earn the most points in the Qualifier events are selected for the Freeride World Tour.

The Freeride World Qualifier competitions for 10 – 18 year-olds follows the same model as the official competitions for the professionals: The jury, format and safety measures… The only difference is the difficulty, the slope and the access to certain exposed areas. More and more talented youngsters are attracted by the off-piste, following the example of their elders in the Freeride World Qualifier, and dream of participating in the prestigious Freeride World Tour.

In France, the vast majority of the Freeride World Qualifier and Freeride Junior Tour competitions form the French Freeride Series.  Right from the start, the company Evolution2 has driven the event through their experience in international competitions and the French Freeride Series team’s goal being to promote freeride which is also an inherent part of Evolution2’s DNA.
