Program BC Invitational

Thanks to the recent snowfall and the highly favourable weather forecast for the next few days, it will be held under optimal conditions. The Nendaz Freeride shapers' team has been hard at work to create the largest temporary snowpark. In the Plan du Fou sector above Siviez (Nendaz), an arrival area with a bar, live band and live commentary is also being set up.


There are several Freeride World Tour winners such as Maxime Chabloz (Switzerland), Markus Eder (Italy) and Léo Slemett (France), who has won the Nendaz Freeride 4* three times. Martin Bender (CH), 2022 Junior Freeride World Champion, is also taking part, as is Fabio Studer (AUT), Sebastian Mall (CH) and Ralph Welponer (IT).

The Swiss Carlos Gerber, who is taking part in the World Snowboard Tour, and Eliot Dänzer, junior freeride world champion and member of the Nendaz Freeride Elite Team, will be competing alongside the Mexican Liam Rivera (MEX), who has qualified for the Freeride Word Tour and is a regular participant in the Nendaz Freeride.


The level also promises to be excellent, with a duel between the Swiss freeriders Eva Battolla and Martina Müller, who will have their work cut out for them against the French riders Astrid Cheylus and Lea Bouard.

Among the women snowboarders, Léa Klaue, Coline Benninger and Zoé MacGeorge are defending the Swiss flag against Tiphanie Perrotin from France, who won the Freeride World Tour in 2022, and Nuria Castan Baron from Spain, who is often present at the Nendaz Freeride 4*.
