Ross Tester is a skier currently based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. After spending three years competing on the Freeride World Tour, Ross is shifting his focus to spending more time in his own backyard.
Ross Started off his FWT career in 2021 with a bang as he won two events, took 2nd overall, and won Rookie of the Year. He continued his dominance in 2022 and 2023 with a handful of podiums, 3rd overall in 2022, and 5th overall in 2023.
Description: For the last two seasons, Ross has been apart of the Volkl/Marker/Dalbello family. Not only has Ross been able to give immense exposure to the brand, but he has also helped solidify them as a product capable of even the gnarliest big mountain lines.
Ross has given countless hours for photo shoots, interviews, and meetings with the Volkl team. He is dedicated to helping promote the brand both on and off the mountain in all of his various endeavors.
More Competition and Content!
As Ross heads into his 4th season on the Freeride World Tour, there are a few storylines we are going to be following with opportunities for content. The quest for the World Title and couple close friends joining the tour are just some examples.
Ross will also be starring in a video series highlighting the Freeride World Tour riders which will give a much more in-depth look at the competition than ever before.
Preparation for Olympic Qualifiers
Earlier this year, The Freeride World Tour announced that it has partnered with the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) moving forward. This partnership, along with some other efforts from the FWT and the freeride community, have laid the groundwork for freeride to be an official sport in the Olympics.
While there is no certainty yet, Ross is in a prime position to represent the United States if freeride is included in 2026 Winter Olympics.
