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.

The competition can also be followed live from 8.45 a.m.

We'll be joined by former world champions such as Switzerland's Maxime Chabloz (2nd at FWT 2023), Italy's Markus Eder (FWT winner in 2019) and France's Léo Slemett (2017), who has also won the Nendaz Freeride 4* three times. Martin Bender (CH), 2022 Junior Freeride World Champion and new Freeride World Tour athlete, will also be taking part, as will Craig Murray (NZL), Tenra Katsuno (JPN), Alex Hackel (USA) and Mathys Fornasier (FRA) among others.

The level will also be exceptional with the presence in Nendaz of three-time Italian world champion Arianna Tricomi, who will be challenged by Polish Freeride World Tour competitor Zuzanna Witych and French skier Lou Barin.

Due to the length of the event and the live action, only male and female skiers are invited to take part in this year's event.
