The Madesimo Freeride Festival is back: from February 22nd 3 days of dust and passion

Torna il Madesimo Freeride Festival: dal 22 febbraio 3 giorni di polvere e passione
After the last year's break, the Madesimo Freeride Festival returns with three days dedicated to lovers of fresh snow: a test area with all new products, introductory courses for freeride and for the most advanced riders, clinics and guided tours in the mountains of the area.
At its fifth edition, the vital center of the event will be the extensive test area dedicated to the world of freeride gear manufacturers: skis, telemark, snowboard, splitboard, clothing and accessories. The test village will be located at the arrival of the Larici cableway and will be active on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th February, allowing participants to try out all the news of the season. On the agenda there are various activities with mountain guides with activities with safety foucs, risk assessment, steep terrain technique, freeride excursion with the use of lifts and a daily trip with seal skins, including the valley of the Angeloga and the ascent to Pizzo Mater at 3.025m. Among the activities worth mentioning is the approach to speed riding, or skiing "assisted" by a special paraglider that allows you to take advantage of the changes in slope to alternate curves in fresh snow to long "flights" in glide. A "camp base" experience will also be organized in which the participants will have the opportunity to spend a night in a tent under the stars.
