Swany athlete Sonja Lercher competing in Swatch Freeride World Tour

Sonja Lercher shows off her big mountain skills.

We’re thrilled to announce that Sonja Lercher, one of the many great athletes Swany Gloves sponsors, is one of only 12 women competing in the Swatch Freeride World Tour, the world’s preeminent big mountain skiing event.

The Whistler, B.C., resident also is the only woman representing Canada in the worldwide competition. “Being part of the whole tour as the only Canadian girl, it’s incredible,” she told Pique News Magazine. “But I’d (also) like to make the finals at Verbier (France) and only the top five girls will be in that start gate.” Read more.

The first event will be Jan. 7 in Revelstoke, British Columbia, followed by competitions on Jan. 19 (Courmayeur-Mont-Blanc, Italy) and Jan. 26 (Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France).  Three more events follow; here’s the complete schedule.
