European ski patrol meeting held in Le Grand-Bornand.

There are around 500 alpine and nordic trackers, from all the massifs of France, Italy, Switzerland and more distant countries like Argentina, who will compete in sporting events under the sign of conviviality and professionalism.

This sporting event will take place on the site of the Maroly, a real meeting place for all professionals of the snow sports (managers of ski services, trackers, instructors, groomers …) and the general public. This one will enjoy the flagship events like the races of punnets, the giant slalom or will encourage the runners engaged in a relay between cross-country skiing and ski mountaineering.
