Getting ready for the future – business and freeriding


4 days of sessions on building businesses, meeting entrepreneurs from various fields, empty slopes and access to vast freeride terrain with some of the most experienced guides in the alps and best freeriders on the planet. All skiers, snowboarders and freeriders will explore in small groups matched to skill level. Test material will be available to participants on the hill.

Entrepreneurs from various verticals will share their insights into how they faced and successfully overcame obstacles in their efforts to build businesses, as well as how best to face the future. After days in the snow we will discuss the role of authenticity at open table discussions and at presentation sessions. Speakers will provide real and relevant details rather than fancy presentations.
