Freeride festival

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. See you there!

Judgement Criteria

Each run will be judged by a panel of 5 judges. Two of them are judging the snowboard categories and two of them the skiing categories. The head-judge is Paul de Groot who will be responsible for this as Head of Competition. They judge every run on 5 criteria;

* Line-choice: is this a unique line? Different or more technical than others? Difficult

* Control: Control is crucial in big-mountain riding. Having it means success, while losing it can be fatal. That's why the judges can be unforgiving towards those who don't demonstrate enough control during their competition run.

* Technique: The question with this part detailed part of judging is whether the athletes have benefit from a good riding technique. While others need more slide-slipping to come down in a safe manner.

* Fluidity: Is the athlete riding their line in one run or does he/she stop all the time? The goal is to ride down in one way without confusion, hesitation or interruptions.

* Air & Style: if the athlete takes cliffs does he stick them or is this to much risk for him and causes a crash? This judging part diverse good freeriders from the rest of the field and can become a quite interesting part during the finals.
