The Free Ride Festival
15 international films on skiing and snowboarding will screen in competition during the 3 day festival aimed at the general public (entrance fee : 2 € and 5 € per day). In addition to the films, all those attending the International Free Ride Film Festival in Saint-Lary-Soulan will be able to participate in numerous events : contests, demonstrations by the best riders, training for beginners, and – the Free Ride tradition – an all-night party! « This Festival is a unique opportunity to showcase the diversity and artistic quality of world-wide skiing and snowboarding culture. More than a mere sport, Free Ride is an expanding sector which carries the values of a new generation», say the organisers. «The aim is to pay hommage to the films which have helped skiing and snowboarding to flourish».
Saint-Lary-Soulan, snowboarding station.
at the Torino Olympic Games. When it comes to snowboarding, Saint-Lary is indeed awash with champions… on a daily basis! Everywhere, the terrain is a delight for riders with state-of-the-art equipment !
During high season, Saint-Lary already welcomes a community of British skiers and riders, attracted by the South-West of France, a region easily accessible from Toulouse (via Easyjet) or Pau (via Ryanair). To make things even better, a free shuttle (1 hour journey) will link the station with Pau airport during the season 2008/2009.
The odds are that English will be widely spoken this year in Saint-Lary!#EVENT #FREE RIDE #SNOWBOARD
