Preparing well for a day out riding

All geared-up from head to toes: but you’re not totally ready yet! Freeriding takes place outside secured areas in ski resorts. You need to be well-prepared and informed on the last snow and weather condition updates. Before going out, review all the basic rules of freeriding.

1 Make a group to
ski together

To freeride down the mountains safely,
the #1 rule is to use a guide or competent mountain professional for advice on route choice and safety rules.

2 Pack all the
necessary equipment

In any situation, make sure you have all you need : helmet, ski goggles, avalanche beacon and a backpack to carry your surviving kit ( shovel, probe and a first aid kit)

3 Read weather and snow condition reports and inform yourself

While preparing for your day out skiing, make sure the conditions are right. You need perfect conditions. Check the weather and delay your ski day if in doubt or if conditions are not optimal, even if this means waiting for a while. Patience is also what makes this sport so enjoyable!

4 Chose a run adapted
to your skills.

Don’t over-estimate your skills. From the start, Freeriding requires very good skiing skills on groomed runs. Chose the right run for you, and preferably use the service of a mountain guide, or ski with an expert freerider, who will be able to provide good freeriding tips.

Facts you need to know

Marked freeride runs are more and more common in ski resorts. Your favourite ski resort information desk is a great source of information.

I love Freeride skiing as it allows me to discover, explore and escape to the mountains. Obviously powdery snow is the ideal, however this photo does not represent the daily reality of this sport. I discovered freeriding in the Pyrenees which boast fast-changing snow.
Materials and equipment have come such a long way that it is possible to have fun in good snow in the spring, valley crud, slopey fields as well as powdery snow!
You decide on your favourite playing field. Have a good season!
