Take a team of Canadian riders, an historic resort, add to it the “Dark Lord” of French ski cross and Snowlegend guides, sprinkle it all with powder and cheerfulness: you’ll get the result of the competition on line this winter!
Five montrealers have won the 1st prize of the web contest « Your Freeride Crew ». As a reminder, the participants were invited to create their own virtual crew on our Facebook page. This is the Canadian crew title (not without humor) « You don’t have the time to shave on a power day » which took the 1stprize : a week end with freeride ski initiation at la Grave.
These ski fanatics land in Grenoble on Wednesday 15th January for a sick freeride stay at the heart of La Grave ski resort. They were invited to live a really different experience on La Meije glacier with Enak Gavaggio, a multiple XGames freerider medal holder and the ski resort Snowlegend guide. They show to the montrealers high mountain ski (glaciers, lines, woods, waxing and… aperitifs) in a relaxed atmosphere. They have also enjoyed the warmth welcome from Edelweiss auberge at the foot of the slopes.
The winners have also discovered the Rossignol head office located in St Jean de Moirans, France and visited the manufacturing shop where are made, in the greatest secrecy, the athletes products for the Sochi Olympic Game. An opportunity that let them understood the creative process of the brand, and to see some skis of the next season!
Verdict, the Quebeckers had a lot of fun during this stay that they qualify of “stratospheric” and will remember of the journey “for ten years at least”.
We say to them “à tantôt” (see you) in the Alps for #AnotherBestDay
