Freeride Junior World Championships Grandvalira 2017

On February 5, 2017, the ski resort of Grandvalira, Andorra, will welcome over 60 youth riders aged 15-18 for the most prestigious junior championship event in the sport of freeride. The earthshaking level of talent that made last year’s event unforgettable, will once again face off in the Pyrenean epicenter of freeride.
Young skiers and snowboarders have earned their invitation to this championship by their past overall rankings in Freeride Junior events and will represent over 15 nations hailing from Europe, North America, and Oceania.



With more than 210 km of runs, Grandvalira has the largest ski domain in the Pyrenees and is credited with covering the most extensive surface area in the South of Europe. Situated in the Eastern valley of Andorra, Grandvalira offers the choice between seven different sectors, so as to satisfy the most demanding customers. Artificial snow guarantees more than 60% of the ski domain, making winter sports available at any time. The resort is home to the only run in Andorra where international Alpine ski competitions can be held -one of the few in the Pyrenees. Grandvalira has hosted several races of the World cup and is a candidate to organize international Alpine ski competitions on its FIS homologated runs.
