How to Win the Freeride World Tour

Markus Eder breaks down his winning FWT19 Fieberbrunn line in an Audi Quattro Performance Check.
Publish date:

When he just missed winning the Overall Title of the 2018 Freeride World Tour, Italian Markus Eder made a formal transition from a former Olympic slopestyle athlete to one of the most respected and creative big mountain skiers in the world. With his nose-butter 360 off a cliff in Verbier, Eder turned a number of important heads, and even made an appearance in Matchstick Production's Hoji at the invitation of big mountain legend Eric "Hoji" Hjorliefson, whom the film focuses on.

Granted, Eder still spends a lot of time in terrain parks and on manicured backcountry jumps when he's not getting creative off cliffs and wind lips in competition, which might explain how he remains so comfortable in the air on the FWT. After winning the FWT19 stop in Fieberbrunn, Austria, Eder checked in and explained his run in a step-by-step process. FWT head judge Lolo Besse also explains why the judges loved his line so much in this Audi Quattro Performance Check.
