A last-minute change in venue meant that the more well-rounded skiers would have big opportunities to win this year's Verbier Xtreme.
After being canceled last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the stage is set for the 25th edition of the Verbier Xtreme in Switzerland.
As if two Olympic silver medals wasn't enough, ski racer Julia Mancuso has decided to take on the Verbier Xtreme this weekend, the final stop on this year's Freeride World Tour. The venue for the big-mountain competition is the Bec de Rosses, a massive face filled with rocky cliff bands and no-fall zones. Find out why Julia is taking on the challenge.
