The competition will attract about a hundred riders who will compete against each other on skis, snowboards, monoskis or telemark, in teams of two and over timed special slaloms on the resort's well-known off-piste sectors.

This year Evolution 2 is organising a women's event too: the Grand Raid Girls, which will bring together 60 of the best female skiers and snowboarders, including top level sportswomen, amateurs and mountain professionals (ski patrollers, ski instructors)

Each team will sponsor a little girl form Paris and during the Easter holidays 30 young underprivileged girls come and discover the joys of the mountains in La Clusaz.
