The Freeride World Tour is a six-stop, big-mountain competition circuit for some of the world's best skiers and snowboarders. Snowboarder Shannan Yates, seen here, and skier Jackie Paaso are among some of the most successful women on the tour, with multiple victories on the tour over the past few years.
