MATADOR AMBASSADOR and champion freeskier Drew Tabke is off to a solid start to the season, with wins at both the first and third stop of the Freeride world tour. The first event was held in Revelstoke (see above). The tour then moved to Europe for events in Mont Blanc and Chamonix (see below).

2013 marks the first year of a single combined world tour — the Freeride World Tour — with events in both North America and Europe. It features skiers and snowboarders from all over the globe competing at world-class venues and marks a serious step forward for the sport.

With two wins, Drew currently sits on top of the world rankings. Good on ya Drew! Next event will be held in Kirkwood, California, and begins on Feb 27th.
