In a month, the best junior riders in the world will return to the Grandvalira slopes to participate in one of the most important competitions of the season: the Freeride Junior World Championships.
Here we explain you everything about this event that you will be able to see February.
Between February the 3rd and February the 9th, 60 skiers from 15 different countries from Europe, North America and Oceania will gather in Encamp, more precisely at the Peak Alt de Cubil. These skiers that are between 15 and 18 years old are the future promises of this off-piste ski modality, which is gaining more fans.
The area in which the race will take place is one of the highest in the domain of Grandvalira. Its northern orientation makes the snow in it perfect for freeriding. In the Pico Alt de Cubil there are vertical channels, areas of rocks and a great incline that will make this competition demanding for the participants and spectacular for the spectators.
For freeride lovers
If you are a fan of this ski modality, besides attending the event, you can start or improve your technique with one of the titled monitors of Grandvalira. In addition, this year, the ski domain has opened two new slopes in the sector of Grau Roig, the Toboggan and the Circuit Cross, which can be reached through the two-seater ski lift Coma 3 and where you can practice both freeride and freestyle.
And to make sure that you don’t miss anything from this competition and that you can enjoy the snow as long as possible, book your getaway to Andorra at the El Tarter Hotel. This way, once you wake up and you are ready, you can walk to the slopes, since we are only 200 meters away from them.
