Le Freeride World Tour devrait revenir en France, à Val Thorens, après neuf ans d’absence. Photo FWT/JBernard

Ski et snowboard Val Thorens en ouverture du Freeride World Tour 2025 ?

Selon nos informations, la station savoyarde de val thorens devrait accueillir, en janvier 2025, l’ouverture du freeride world tour. avec, en toile de fond, la perspective de marquer des points dans l’attribution des jo 2030 où le freeride postule. explications..

La fin d’une anomalie ? Cet hiver, la France devrait faire son grand retour sur la carte du Freeride World Tour. Selon nos informations, Val Thorens pourrait accueillir, en janvier 2025, la manche d’ouverture du circuit international.

Un événement pour une nation forte privée de sa capacité d’organisation au plus haut niveau depuis 2017 et le retrait de Chamonix .

À l’époque, la station haut-savoyarde avait été refroidie par la mauvaise publicité provoquée par la délocalisation en Andorre pour manque de neige de la seule étape française au calendrier. Un coup de tonnerre pour ce spot alors incontournable depuis 2010 d’un circuit mondial sorti des cartons en 2008.

Voilà pour le volet historique. Place au sportif. Cet hiver, la France est devenue championne du monde de freeride en snowboard grâce au Pyrénéen et nouvel ambassadeur Val Thorens Victor de Le Rue, sacré pour la troisième fois après 2019 et 2021.

Une performance bonifiée par les podiums de la skieuse de La Clusaz Astrid Cheylus (2 e ) et de la snowboardeuse de Chamonix Anna Martinez (3 e ), rookies toutes les deux.

Chamonix attentif

Des Tricolores appelés à évoluer à nouveau à domicile cet hiver alors que, selon nos informations, une délégation de Val Thorens s’est rendue fin mars à Verbier (Suisse) pour assister à la finale du Freeride World Tour et récupérer quelques tuyaux.

Après Tignes (2008 et 2009), la Savoie reviendrait ainsi en force au calendrier international. Elle pourrait ne pas être la seule. Chamonix n’aurait pas abandonné l’idée, tôt ou tard, de revenir aux affaires.

Il faut dire que le rachat l’hiver dernier du circuit mondial par la Fédération Internationale de ski et de snowboard (FIS) a réveillé un paquet de stations alléchées par la montée en puissance du freeride. Un sport en verve qui ne cache plus son envie d’intégrer les JO en 2030, pour lesquels les Alpes demeurent la seule candidature retenue par le CIO.

This Group of Skiers is the Most Likely to Have a Fatal Accident, According to Experts

The data doesn’t lie: middle-aged men are most likely to misjudge their abilities and get in over their heads..

When an avalanche ripped down a popular run in Palisades Tahoe on January 10 , killing a 66-year-old local and trapping several others, the ski world was shocked. Avalanches in in-bounds, controlled ski resort terrain are rare—but sadly, the death it caused is not. A couple months later, a 58-year-old man died after crashing into a tree at Keystone Resort. The incident marked the third death at Colorado ski resorts in just two weeks.

It’s easy to forget that skiing is a dangerous sport. It’s marketed as approachable and luxurious, with happy toddlers pizza-ing down the bunny hill and fur-clad couples enjoying an on-mountain Champagne lunch. But the truth is that skiing can be hazardous, and sometimes, even deadly.

In an attempt to see exactly who is getting injured and killed out there—and how—we dug into stats provided by the National Ski Areas Association , the trade group which represents over 300 alpine ski areas in the U.S. The results were both expected and surprising.

freeride world tour

The NSAA compiles two fact sheets after each ski season. One reveals the number of on-mountain fatalities and the other the number of catastrophic injuries—defined as “life-altering injuries” such as paralysis. We’re still awaiting this past season’s data, but of the 46 people  who died at NSAA ski areas in the 2022-’23 season, 42 were male and 37 were on skis. Of the 53 catastrophic injuries , 42 were male and 44 were skiers. The majority of both incidents occurred on intermediate terrain.

Here’s the twist: Most of the on-mountain fatalities during the 2022-’23 season occurred to people who were between the ages of 51 and 60. So while the stereotype is that the young guns hucking cliffs and skiing way too fast are paying the ultimate price, in reality, it’s the middle-aged guys.

We asked Dr. Mark Aoyagi , a Certified Mental Performance Consultant and a sport and performance psychology professor at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology to walk us through how men process dangerous situations.

      Be Prepared: Your Ski Helmet Could Be Pointless If You’re Doing These 7 Things

“Men are more likely to take risks than women generally speaking” Aoyagi told SKI, and that the reason is anthropological. “You can imagine the evolutionary benefits of a subset of people that are willing to wander away from what is keeping us alive here to see what might be better elsewhere. The explorers tended to be men, though certainly not exclusively. So, this helps to explain and understand why more men are risk-takers.”

In today’s world, Aoyagi said he believes males are more likely to take unhealthy risks in extreme sports like skiing due to peer pressure and a lack of awareness of their own actual abilities. Social media isn’t helping. Watching videos of people launching off cliffs or straight-running a groomer — which Aoyagi says can come off as “crazy, stupid, or highly skilled,” depending on your perspective—also plays a role in risk taking.

OK, but why the 51- to 60-year-old demographic?

“I think the stereotype ‘risk-taker’ would be a 16-18 year old bombing down the hill or doing extreme things in a terrain park,” Aoyagi acknowledged, “… but what it seems like we are missing is the risk of 51-60 year olds not recognizing the decline in their athletic ability generally, skiing/snowboarding ability specifically, and the decrease in resilience/survivability.”

“As a person close to entering my 50s, I think this is a great reminder that risk-taking means something very different,” Aoyagi said. “We might be radically underestimating the risk involved in skiing/riding on an intermediate run thinking that this was nothing for our 25 year old selves. So I think there is a needed recalibration of risk for this age group.”

While the most-impacted age range for on-mountain fatalities in 2022-’23 was surprising to Aoyagi, the data on catastrophic injuries was not. According to the report, people between the ages of 16 to 20 accounted for most of the 53 catastrophic injuries last ski season. Again, most of them male.

freeride world tour

For this age group, Aoyagi said, risk can be very psychological. “The fact is that the CEO of your brain (the prefrontal cortex) isn’t fully developed until your mid to late 20s,” he explained. “Among other things, the prefrontal cortex (PFC) is responsible for modeling the future and understanding consequences. So teenagers don’t just believe they are invincible, they literally can’t reason out how they could die.”

Most of these deadly or catastrophic incidents occurred on intermediate terrain. Only one of the fatalities happened in the terrain park, but 10 of the 53 catastrophic incidents occurred there.

So, if you’re a male skier, what can you do to mitigate your risk?

Understanding your limitations is a good place to start. Your 55-year-old self might not be able to ski what your 25-year-old self could, and that Instagram-famous big-mountain skier may be more qualified to drop that cliff than you are. To that end, being aware of peer pressure and avoiding situations where you feel pressured can go a long way to mitigating on-mountain risk.

      Also Read: In My Final Ski Season, I Reflect On a Lifetime of Memories and Lessons Learned

Similarly, Aoyagi said alcohol “dampens one’s ability to comprehend consequences and model the future,” while some drugs can increase impulsivity or dopamine levels, which can lead to more risk-taking.

That all said, risk-taking is not the enemy. In fact, Aoyagi says healthy risk-taking is essential.

“Simplistically, I would say you could categorize risks as ‘calculated’ and ‘naive.’ Calculated risks are based on a progression of skills and self-awareness where the person has a good understanding of what they can do in that space,” Aoyagi said. “This is the person who does a five-foot jump and then a 10-foot jump and gradually builds up to a 50 foot jump,” he said.

Alternatively, Aoyagi explained that a naive risk is when you see someone go off a 50-foot jump and you think, “they did it, so can I.”

Seeing as the era of Red Bull events, the Freeride World Tour comps, and social media stunts aren’t going away anytime soon, the best we can hope for is more education around the science of risk taking to get through to male skiers before they make poor decisions on the slopes.

Snowboard: la Française Tiphanie Perrotin sacrée championne du monde en freeride

La Française Tiphanie Perrotin a été sacrée samedi championne du monde en snowboard en freeride après la dernière étape du Freeride World Tour à Verbier, succédant ainsi à une autre snowboardeuse tricolore, Marion Haerty.

La Haut-Savoyarde de 33 ans, troisième à l'issue de la dernière étape sur le mythique spot suisse, a devancé l'Américaine Erika Vikander et l'Autrichienne Manuela Mandl pour s'adjuger le titre de championne du monde pour sa première saison sur le circuit.

Elle succède à la Française Marion Haerty, quatre fois sacrée dans la compétition (2017, 2019, 2020, 2021).

Sacré en 2021, Victor de Le Rue a remporté l'étape de Verbier côté hommes. Mais c'est l'Américain Blake Moller qui a été sacré champion du monde à l'issue de la saison, devant le Français Camille Armand.

La pratique du freeride, discipline de ski et de snowboard en hors piste, est justement née à Verbier il y a 25 ans. Le circuit mondial en plusieurs étapes a vu le jour en 2008.

En ski, ce sont le Suisse Maxime Chabloz et l'Australienne Jessica Hotter qui se sont imposés.
