The Nissan Freeride de Tignes will finally take place on the Grand Balme

The decision to wait until Thursday, March 12th to hold the competition paid off: with the heavy snowfall in Tignes over the past two days, around one meter of fresh snow has accumulated on certain faces. Thanks to these exceptional conditions and the thumbs up from the mountain guides in charge of security, the Nissan Freeride de Tignes will finally take place on the Grand Balme! With more than 500 vertical meters and perfect natural terrain, the Grand Balme face has already been host to numerous major freeride competitions since 2001.
The show starts at 9am at the foot of the Grand Balme.
