The end of the season is nearly upon us with just a few high altitude resorts open: la Grave, Tignes, Val Thorens and Chamonix Mont-Blanc will shut their lifts at the end of the week. That brings us around to the annual Freeride Days. The event, organized in partnership between the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc and Dynastar, will be held on the Monday the 8th on the May at Grands-Montets.
The theme is “back to the 80s” – Duran Duran, mullets, padded shoulders, white tone rear entry ski boots and 203cm straight skis (or even a monoski) for potential wild boys. Slicked back short straight hair, short skirts and frills for the girls. Skiers may like to consider a JM Boivin florescent pink one piece ski suit and boarders, how about a signature canary yellow suit a la Regis Rolland? The most retro skier will win a pair of Dynastar Big Trouble skis. There will be usual assortment of stars from the French winter sports scene and the famous waterslide and snowpark.
