Freeride World Tour launches a new podcast: No Fall Zone

December 22, 2023

The Freeride World Tour has announced the release of its latest podcast season, which promises to take you into the minds of FWT snowboarders and skiers like never before.

The host of the new show is Dave Mailman, who has been main announcer of the FWT since the beginning, supported by long-time FWT photographer Dom Daher. These two FWT personalities know the Tour better than anyone else, perfectly positioning them to lift the curtain and give fans a glimpse of what life is really like for FWT athletes.

The podcast will be comprised of rider interviews as Dave attempts to unveil the inner workings of the many different characters on the Tour. The show promises to go into unchartered territory with each interviewee, unearthing insights exclusive to the series. This allows viewers to discover the individuals behind the herculean-like athletes they see on competition day, and how their personalities help them perform under pressure.

Elisabeth Gerritzen is the first guest on No Fall Zone. In this episode, she talks about her retirement in October 2023, looking back on an incredible career, her World Championship title in 2021, and her fall in Fieberbrunn 2023 where she was afraid of dying for the first time in her career. She also reflects on women’s rights in the freeride industry, and delves into her relationship with Verbier and the Bec des Rosses.
