Following the success of the first edition in February 2022, the Arc’teryx Freeride Academy returns to St. Anton am Arlberg with a bigger all-round experience to further cement its place in the St. Anton community and Freeride calendars. Over the course of four days, St. Anton will be rocking with this event which brings together the ski and snowboard community in an environment where they can enhance and elevate their freeride skills, get inspired and connect with like-minded people. The Arc’teryx Freeride Academy website goes live on November 18 with a first glance at the program, and tickets for clinics will be on general sale from November 22.
This year at the Arc’teryx Freeride Academy has an expanded offering which promises not only to deliver a wider range of top-notch clinics but also builds on the previous year with the involvement of a greater number of world class freeriders, such as Eric ‘Hoji’ Hjorleifson (CAN) and Sam Kuch (CAN) and Silvia Moser (ITA) and Max Kroneck (GER), who’ll join participants on the clinics. Other additions to the Arc’teryx Freeride Academy are the new Freeride Village, the great community meet-up space right in the heart of St. Anton, the inclusion of the location as a stop on the Arc’teryx Films On Tour ‘For the Love Of Winter’, and the chance to keep the stoke and vibes going at the After Party.
With all we have on offer, we’re sure that everyone can find the inspiration to push their ski and snowboard experiences to the next level
‘The support and passion from St. Anton town and local community has always been amazing and it’s awesome to be heading back for the 2023 Arc’teryx Freeride Academy,’ says Stéphane Tenailleau, Director, EMEA Marketing at Arc’teryx. ‘We’re stoked to be able to really build on last year with a refreshed clinic offering, a stacked off-mountain program and an even greater number of world-class freeriders. With all we have on offer, we’re sure that everyone can find the inspiration to push their ski and snowboard experiences to the next level.’
The program of 40 on-snow clinics covering the topics of freeriding, touring, safety, and photography, including highlights such as Big Mountain Freeride, Women’s only: Freeride with Pros and Ski Touring Arlberg Style, will ensure that participants of all levels will be able to find what they need to build their perfect on-snow adventure. And with instruction provided by some of the world’s best guides and freeriders, the Arc’teryx Freeride Academy will be the perfect opportunity for participants to elevate their skills and experience.
