to unite
the European freeski community.

Today our goal remains the same
as it was back then, but with an 
even broader scope. Via our print products and merchandise visit our Shop, website go to Homepage, social media channels , and events see Calendar, we communicate the love of skiing without rules or boundaries not just for our friends in Europe, but for skiers around the world.

Our vision of skiing is holistic. Whether you’re swagged out grinding rails in the streets, chomping granola on the skin track, blasting sidecountry powder or lapping your local snowpark, we feel you. If you view skiing as a form of expression and a way of life, you’re at home go to Homepage here.
