The 2024 season will be the 10th year of the New Zealand Junior Freeride Tour!

 

We are very proud to announce The North Face presents the New Zealand Freeride Tour. The NZJFT is extremely proud to have The North Face as the title sponsor again for 2024, they have been a backbone of the NZ freeride scene for generations and to have them supporting our junior events is an honor.

The NZJFT is going to be a 3 stop tour this year, providing our young freeriders a chance to compete in a Junior Freeride Tour event.

We are proudly supported by the resorts - Treble Cone, Remarkables & Mt Olympus.

It's the small guys that always carry the load & the NZJFT is blessed by the support of NZ SnowSports, Volkl skis, Jonel Hydraulics, Bridgens Construction, Be Effect Brewery, & AJ Hackett.

Without them we wouldn't be able to run a tour for all you are frothing freeriders so a big thanks!

 

This tour has been set up to provide our junior and adult athletes with the opportunity to compete in professionally run freeride competitions. Our focus is on fun, participation and safety along with promoting the incredible sport that is freeriding.

As past years the NZJFT will again award invitations to the 2019 JFT World Championship to the stand out skiers and boarders in the 14 – 17 age category (potential for both boys and girls). In past years we have selected a team based off results and personal performace on the NZJFT. The teams have backed up their performances on the NZJFT at the Junior World Championships and have showed NZ is a nation to be reckoned with. In five years NZ has had 4 overall European champion titles claimed by kiwis.
