There is enough rideable terrain to keep every style of rider happy. The park crew create and shape one of the finest glacial parks in Europe which has two super pipes, a variety of kickers with a good progression ranging from blue to black. There are also great rail, box and jib features to keep any avid jibber happy as well as a world class boarder cross track. Check out Saas Fee here Saas FeeRead more


BACKCOUNTRY ADVENTURE

Thursday 12 January
Superb riding conditions have been found all over the mountain. The higher altitude slopes have kept the best snow. Mark and Nick joined vivid snowboarding for a Backcountry Adventure.
The meeting point was Off Shore 9 am where the lads grabbed there transceivers, shovels and probes. The  first route of the day was a toe side traverse followed by a 20 minute hike into rock garden. The climb in had been boot packed the going was good. Once at the top we took a left and hiked a little more. The extra 5 minute hike was rewarded with amazing powder turns . After rock garden we headed back up top via a gondola and cable car ride to the top of Mont gele which stands at over 3000 meters . We then headed down the south side of the mountain to La Chaux. Conditions where a little windblown at the top but the sun had already began to soften the snow which allowed for some easier turns towards the bottom.

Stairway to Heavan

After a quick pit stop Nick was wanting to beat his top speed of 45mph so he headed for some open slopes while Mark and myself heading up the jumbo to the Mont Fort glacier. First up was the small but intense climb into Stairway, again we were rewarded with some great snow conditions and it was easy to make some smooth powder slashes. The bottom section of the mountain was used to work on some pressure control skills and organising movement patterns in the chopped up terrain. We headed back up to the very top of the Mont Fort glacier and headed for the South face of Mont fort which was very steep at the top. Mark rode the steeps like a true backcountry pro and managed to get a few early turns in which lead to an overall fluid run. Once at the bottom we traversed to our next climb which took us to the bottom of the Bec des Rosses where the world freeride finals are held every year. Once again conditions where great and we cruised under the giant mountain above.
Next stop the snow park. Mark finished the day with a bit of kicker and rail action and then we headed for a well earned beer in town. An amazing day was had by all and even since the last snowfall 6 days ago we managed to find some great snow.
