WHITE FESTIVAL 2018

WHITE FESTIVAL 2018

WHITE FESTIVAL will be held on Albertville’s Olympic Hall. The event is characterized as a first: an indoor, winch-powered freeski and snowboard contest combined with a musical lineup.

A stacked lineup of riders have signed on for the event, like Jossi Wells, Phil Casabon, Antti Ollia and Henrik Harlaut (check the full list below). The festival features a funky contest format: skiers are paired together with snowboarders on teams of two. The skier/boarder teams will duke it out through qualifying and semi-final rounds to reach the final and the €25,000 prize purse.
