The 2014 Freeride World Tour kicks off this morning in Courmayer Mont Blanc. The worlds best big mountain skiers and snowboarders have arrived in Italy ready to prove themselves and nail down some early points in the first of six stops (five for the women) of this years tour. From 12.30CET/11.30GMT we’ll be bringing you all the action from the first day in the Alps so tune in.
