Similarly, our long-standing supporter and environmentally-responsible outdoor action brand, Picture Organic Clothing will once again be presenting the British Big Air Championships, where leading ambassador and Olympic bronze medallist, Jenny Jones will be on-hand to decorate the 2019 British Big Air Champions. During the week, Picture will also be hosting a Movie Night to showcase their award-winning and genuinely awe-inspiring film, Zabardast, plus a Picture Organic Treasure Hunt around LAAX.

Throughout the week, BBC Sport will be stepping up its coverage this year with daily Snowboard and Freeski Championship edits, athlete Instagram takeovers, and a ‘Groms That Are Killin it’ feature for main channel broadcast, while Protect Our Winters will be joining us for the first time, in its continuing efforts to mobilize the outdoor sports community against climate change.

Off the hill you can expect all the usual revelry, eased in gently with daily Apres Sessions and featuring 2 headlining nights. Master of disguise and Ski Sunday presenter, Ed Leigh, will be taking to the stage as his inappropriate Swiss alter-ego for the truly bizarre gameshow ‘Monsieur Poudreuse’s Mounting Quiz’. Then it’s over to the GFCNL crew for the Pirate themed Fancy-Dress Night ‘Who ARGGHHH Ya!’
