Freeriding as a competition is about awarding the most all-round skier by judging piste selection, technique, control, flow and intensity while skiing down a particular ski slope. Thus the winner is awarded based on these skills and expertise – not for foolhardiness and overconfidence.

At Hemsedal Skisenter we focus on safety, skills and the mastery of these skills. For this reason we invite national and international skiers who are highly skilled, but of course we want to give newer budding freeriding talents the chance to participate.

Come and watch the gladiators of the mountain battling against nature and their fellow competitors. There will be Telemark and alpine competitions for men and women with cash prizes as well as other great prizes for winners in all classes. In addition we offer a great programme including prizes, pre-after ski at Skistua, two days of freeriders' hard core after ski at Hemsedal Cafe, a veritable institution for freeriding, freeriders' die hard party at Hemsen Nattklubb and freeriders' lounge & buffet at Experten Sports Bar.
