Two days of avalanche and mountain rescue training, safety while out snowboarding for all ages, a best trick competition and The Roster burgers make up Victor Daviet’s The Shred Safety Days. Taking place in Arêches-Beaufort across January 4-5, 2020, registration for the Shred Safety Days is now open.
The Safety Shred Days are back January 4 & 5, 2020 in Arêches-Beaufort!
Organised by the professional freeride snowboarder Victor Daviet in collaboration with the French resort of Arêches-Beaufort (Savoie), the upcoming and 3rd edition of the Safety Shred Days will take place on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 January 2020.
This event has become the rendez-vous of prevention and mountain rescue training, thanks to the support of ANENA (National Association of Snow and Avalanches Study) and Johan Gaume (former pro snowboarder and avalanche researcher at the prestigious school EPFL Lausanne).
Its goal: to create a freeride meeting at the season kick-off to allow a maximum of riders to train and democratise mountain safety by proposing an educational, fun and affordable event.
Last year, more than 210 practitioners registered to attend the Safety Shred Days, including 50 children and teens from 6 to 16 years old.
Each year, many pro riders come to train at the Safety Shred Days like the snowboard world champion Mathieu Crepel, Marion Haerty and Victor De La Rue, and snowboard freeride world champions along with Thomas Delfino, Léo Taillefer, Mirabelle Thovex, Anaïs Caradeux…
Registrations are open!
