HAINES, ALASKA


It is in this region of the North American continent, Haines – Alaska that the first ever freeride competitions emerged. Because of its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the weather conditions are exceptional, making this destination one of the wildest freeride spots in the world.

It is in this mysterious setting, eagerly awaited by all riders – supervised by the bald eagle, that the last qualifying stage before the great final in Verbier will take place.
