The FWT is the worldwide circuit of freeride snowboarding and skiing with the best riders in the world competing on the most legendary and challenging alpine faces and the most renowned ski resorts across the world. Hakuba has been a destination for the FWT since 2017 and Evergreen Alpine Academy are proud to be involved.

We are excited to bring you the FWT Academy, where we encourage and challenge young skiers and riders to push their limits and gain the skills to comfortably handle all types of terrain and snow conditions, in a safe, controlled environment.

These clubs run throughout Europe, and now youths here in Japan can benefit and learn from the experience and passion our trained and dedicated instructors and guides bring to the table. Checkout the FWT Academy homepage here.
