Be @ B&E Invitational Winners
The Be @ B&E Invitational 2016 online video contest gives anyone the unique opportunity to win one of two Wildcards to ride at the B&E Invitational with 22 of the best skiers on the planet. Over 35 videos were submitted from all over the world and posted on Downdays for the European entries, and Freeskier for the Rest of the World entries. After a global audience vote brought the entries down to the final five, Henrik awarded the Rest of the World wildcard to Alex Beaulieu-Marchand (CAN) while Phil awarded the European wild card to Joona Kangas (FIN).

Henrik stated: “Alex is super stylish and really technical. He showed us just how hungry he was for the wildcard so we’re stoked to have him at this year’s B&E.

Phil commented: “I had never really heard of Joona before, and actually discovered him through his edit for the video contest. He has a really different, unusual style so it’ll be really cool to see him ski our crazy set-up.

The B&E Package
For the first time ever, the B&E Invitational and Les Arcs have created a short stay package, offering anyone the opportunity to attend the most highly anticipated freeski and music event of the winter. Starting at 69 Euros per person, this package includes housing for two to four days in the center of Arc 1800, and a ski pass for the duration of the stay, thereby guaranteeing access to the B&E Invitational venue and festivities.
