The competition will be held on Baciver, a West-facing venue with a summit altitude of 2645 m and a vertical change of 385 m. The region was blessed with copious early-season snowfall, which established an excellent snowpack across much of the Pyrenees.

FWT 2022 athletes, including defending World Champions Victor De Le Rue (Snowboard Men, FRA), Kristofer Turdell (Ski Men, SWE) and Elizabeth Gerritzen (Ski Women, SUI), have all arrived to Baqueira Beret and are busy inspecting the competition venue, training and enjoying local culture as the big day approaches. Not in attendance is Marion Hearty (Snowboard Women, FRA), who is pursuing other projects after a dominant career in competitive freeride that included four world titles.

Event Wildcards consistently provide jaw-dropping performances on the FWT, often spoiling the hopes of the defending champions and qualified riders. For Baqueria Beret, those Wildcards are: Lexi duPont (Ski Women - USA), Manuel Diaz (Snowboard Men - CL) Max Palm (Ski Men, SWE), Pau Riba (Snowboard Men, ESP) and Núria Castan Baron (Snowboard Women, ESP).
