For the men’s World Tour there are five stages and then the final which takes place in Verbier. The best three results from the five stages are counted and then the cut is made.

For women there are only four FTW stages, again with the best three scores qualifying the athlete for the showdown in Switzerland.

After the final stage in Verbier the FWT Champion is chosen taking into account four best results for the male and female competitions. Scores clocked in Verbier count the same as any of the previous stages.
