Skiers and snowboarders will kick off the first competition of the 2020 season of the Freeride World Tour on 19th January, in Hakuba, Japan. The FWT makes the announcement that it would pay equal cash prize across all categories. Skiers and snowboarders will now receive the same cash prizes regardless of gender.
Emma Patterson, a rookie skier said that it’s one of the biggest steps that freeride has taken in the last five years and FWT has grown exponentially in that time. They all are putting in the same time and effort and deserve the same amount of money. So regardless of gender and category, the first-place winner receives $5,000, second place gets $3,000, and third place will receive $2,000 respectively.
