The thrill of fresh snow on a snowboard or on your skis.
Freeride is a sport for those that prefer skiing on winding tracks with fresh powdery snow: you reach the top with ski lifts and come down through the pure snow slopes of the silent mountains. Play this exciting sport safely by having your avalanche beacon, shovel and probe in your backpack, always checking the snow and weather forecasts and consulting the alpine guides and the ski instructors so that you can have lots of fun safely.
