The annual Ski and Snowboard equipment tests are fast becoming the pre-season meet and the first snowsports rendez-vous of the winter, whilst most other winter sports resorts haven't opened.
The Mondial Du Freeski will gather together specialist manufacturers. The well known CORE brands will open their doors to the public to demonstrate their knowledge and showcase their new products with demos from freeskiers, trend-setters and CORE leaders.
The long established Mondial du Snowboard, now in its 19th year, still has the eternally youthful spirit of the early years, launching new products and offering the chance to mix with the stars of the snowboarding world.
This year, the general public will be at the heart of the event thanks to snowboard discovery workshops, organised by the brands in order to inspire the snowboarders of the future. After last year's success, the Snowboard Awards are back again to reward the best Riders of the season in a super chic awards ceremony where baggy trousers are definitely not the dress code. As always, there will be even more entertainment, activities and competitions.
