The Nendaz Freeride will be held on two days, the first for Day 1 (Friday) and the second (Saturday) for Day 2 (final).The best worldwide riders will compete for the first prize and the FWQ points (4* competition) in one single run on the mythical slopes of Mont-Gond. Our spectators will be able to enjoy the competition from the village hosting the finals at the foot of Mont-Gond or at the Plan du Fou restaurant.
Here are the pictures of the potential qualification and finale faces. The final choice will be communicated during the briefing, depending on the snow quality, the safety and the weather conditions.
Those slopes can be observed with binoculars from the bottom of the mountain but it is strickly prohibited to get there before the competition as this would be a ground for elimination. Local riders have also been made aware not to ride those slopes during the week preceding the competition.
