The weekend of the 19th-21st December sees the 2nd edition of the Rendez-vous des Etoiles at the Pic du Midi observatory near to la Mongie in the Hautes Pyrénées. 5 star riders and 5 star yachtsmen are heading the guest list this year to the Vaisseau des Etoiles (star ship) observatory on top of the 2877 meter peak.
The idea is to unite the riders of snow with the riders of the waves. Okay, like son et lumiere you have to be French to get it. The Pic du Midi is one of the top freeride domains in France and the stations of Barèges and la Mongie the biggest ski area in the French Pyrénées mountains. Freeride, big air, snowskate and slalom session have been organised along with exhibitions in the observatory itself.
