The magic and inspiration of Poederbaas Freeride Festival is crafted from their own passion and want to share this with everybody; at Poederbaas Freeride Festival the concept of freeriding and party come to life and experiences are created.

Indeed, the event is all about celebrating the god-given terrain features found on any mountainside in the most exciting and elemental format possible. There‘s a start gate at the summit and a finish gate at the bottom. That’s it. Best run down wins.
