A Desert Skiing Epic. XCSS#01 Sahara 2022
We are in 2070 and the global temperature has increased by +2°C. 30% of humanity now lives in areas where the average temperature is over 29°C and 19% of the earth’s surface experiences temperatures higher than those of the Sahara in 2020. This could be pure fiction, but recent climatic episodes events encourage us to prepare for it. Edition #01 of the XCSS climate can’t wait project has chosen to experiment its main lines in May 2022 in Hassilabiad (Morocco). The participants, these pioneers of cross-country skiing on sand, took part in a solidarity and sporting epic in order to find keys to resilience and climate adaptation by learning from the peoples of the deserts. The film “A desert skiing epic”, produced by Teten Prod, traces the first progress of this long adventure.

Freeride World Tour 2023 Rd3 Kicking Horse Golden BC, Canada

The Freeride World Tour continues in Canada at Kicking Horse Golden BC, (CAN). Known for its champagne powder and long, steep runs, it’s no wonder Kicking Horse attracts riders from all over the globe. The competition takes place on the ever-impressive Ozone Face, offering riders 324 meters of vertical drop and a varied freeride playground of steep terrain, cornices, transfers, and big cliffs. This provides something to suit the different styles of the athletes, who scope out their lines and aim for what could earn a podium finish. In the back of their minds is the cut, which means for many, this would be their last FWT event of the season, and so they have nothing to lose to stay on tour and earn their place in the FWT Finals
