3rd place Verbier Xtremes!!! 3rd Overall Freeride World Tour Ranking!!!

20 03 2011

What a day it has been. Heli accessed final on the Petits Bec de Ross with amazing conditions. I had an amazing kiwi crew cheering me on. Thanks guys for making the trip to Verbier. So I ended up 3rd overall on the Freeride World Tour. So stoked… it’s been a long season competing and it’s finally all over. It was also my first time competing on this face and I came in 3rd place today. Just so happy to make the finals and be in Verbier.

Big shout out to my sister. She was caught in a huge avi during her run in the comp and was dragged 200m in a class 2 avi, Buried up to her waist. She was able to dig herself out with her shovel before the guides got to her. She is safe and not hurt. Just a bit shaken up. Maria ended up 4th overall on the FWT.

Maria caught in this avi. LUCKY!!!
