Ten years ago we started with the first Dutch Freeride Competition in Goldeck, Austria. It was a fun freeride competition with a lot good ski- & snowboard talents from the Netherlands.
Besides organizing the competition part we started with organizing side-events as well. Snowsafety clinics, a freeride test-center and of course some great apres-ski party's followed. It was clear, after a few years this freeride competition grew into a larger freeride festival with a lot of spectators, guides, ski- & snowboard brands.
The last three years we organized the Dutch Vertical Skimo (Ski mountaineering) as well. This is a skitour race on time against each other with a starting point in the village and a finish at Sunny Mountain.
New this year is that we organising the official Belgium Freeride Championships as well. We're looking forward to a great edition in Kappl, Austria from 9 till 16 March.
CLINICS & MORE
During this Poederbaas Freeride Festival there are a lot of side activities which you can join as a visitor of this event. We focus on Snowsafety clinics which will be given by our valuable ski- & snowboard guides. With their many years of experience they share their knowledge with the visitors and athletes.
Besides the snow safety clinics you can test skies & snowboards from all the big freeride brands. Do you want to learn how to freeride ski- or snowboard? Sign up for the freeride clinics and we'll hook you up with one of our guides.
