“The Iconic BC Freeride course comes to the French Pyrennes! Definitely one of my new favourite places to ride, the peaks of the Pyrenees are spectacular, the terrain here is wild,  endless, fun and mostly untouched.”

The Iconic BC Freeride course comes to the French Pyrenees!

5 days of exciting Freeride shred and Splitboard touring amongst the Wild peaks of the Pyrenees.

It is no secret that for the past few years the Pyrenees have been getting more early season snow than the Alps. The moist South Westerly airstreams coming in off the Atlantic, now increasingly common early season, greatly favor the peaks of the Southern Alps and even more so, the Pyrenees, bringing frequent and plentiful Snowfall.

Whilst not quite as high or numerous as some of their Northern cousins, the peaks of the Pyrenees are spectacular and the terrain here is wild,  endless and mostly untouched. Pyrenean ski resorts are mostly smaller, quieter and more remote than those of the Alps and the potential here, both on and off the piste is endless.

With an exciting new ‘flexible’ approach to where and what we ride this 5 day journey of BC Freeride exploration will take us in search of the best snow conditions and the most fun terrain, using the lifts for access whilst reserving the possibility of a quick Split here and there when and where needed.

“The most fun I’ve had Snowboarding in years!”

Make your accommodation booking through the Hotel Montaigu website (, booking your place in the  Luz Saint Saveur from the 16th to 22nd. You can purchase your lift pass ‘no souci’ on the site or on the first morning.
