Click on the Mountain returns to Courmayeur for its 10th edition!
Courmayeur is proud to announce the 10th edition of Click on the mountain. Established in 2009, the inaugural film and photo freeride competition has come a long way and does not plan to slow down!
Starting on 5th of March, four international teams will come together in Courmayeur to crown the best amongst them. Each team has three days time to produce a portfolio of photos and a short movie, of which both have to follow the topics of “Curiosity & Freedom”.
Professional free riders, filmers and photographers will once more storm the mountains of Aosta valley to produce the most stunning content that can be collected in 96 hours.
The task is clear: go out there, ride and shoot as much as you can and come back with a short movie and a set of 10 pictures. The south side of Europe’s highest mountain offers what every freerider is dreaming of: vast amounts of snow, open powderfields, steep and rocky descents and playful forests – all gathered around the picturesque town of Courmayeur.
The 4 international teams will have to choose wisely, where to go: one day will be spent in the resort of Courmayeur, one day up on SkyWay Monte Bianco and one day flying into the backcountry with the Helicopters of GMH Heliskiing. Safety takes top priority: that’s why four members of the Società Guide Alpine di Courmayeur will accompany the teams during the competition.
For the first time ever, Click on the mountain welcomes female rider: Giulia Monego from Italy! Together with Canadian skier Sophie Lechasseur she will for an all-female team, followed by photographer Klaus Polzer and filmer Flo Albert.
Coming all the way from Scandinavia, Team Sweden will bring Nordic flair to Courmayeur: It may be the first visit to the Mont Blanc area for Skiers William Larsson, Erik Lundmark, photographer Adam Klingeteg and filmer Sebastian Oden Sandbland – but as “Curiosity & Freedom” is the 2018 topic this surely is a 100% fit!
Monster Energy once again trusts in the power of Simon Gruber who will be joined by Italian ripper Marco Grigis, being followed by Roberto Bragotto (photo) and Kevin Kok (film).
French rippers Julien Eustache and Nathan Gaidet guarantee to bring freestyle trickery to the Italian backcountry, captured by Germain Felix Favre and Nicolas Gumery!
Fresh Snow is on the way to Courmayeur, powder wants to be ridden and cliffs are waiting to be dropped… Stay tuned for updates from Click on the Mountain 2018!
The prize giving will take place on March 10th at the Maserati Mountain Lounge, at 7PM in Central Courmayeur. Don’t miss this, as all four teams will present the outcome of their hard work!
