We can’t wait to watch the world’s best riders perform on Baqueira Beret’s mountains, and look forward to sharing the majesty of Val d’Aran with the world,” said the resort’s marketing director, Xavi Ubeira,.
Following the inaugural event at Baqueira Beret, the FWT heads to Arcalis in Andorra, before crossing the Atlantic to Kicking Horse in British Columbia, Canada.
It is then at Fieberbrunn in the Tirol in Austria before the finale in Verbier, Switzerland.
