    Nendaz Freeride | Official Sponsor

    MGG is proud to be the official apparel sponsor to Nendaz Freeride (Instagram: @nendazfreeride).

    The first event of the Nendaz Freeride 2022 calendar was the Backcountry Invitational, hosted by Tanner Hall x MGG, in collaboration with Nendaz Freeride. The event took place on Saturday 5th February 2022 and, despite fears that snow conditions wouldn’t even permit the running of the day at all, in the end one of the greatest backcountry freestyle showcases in recent memory shook the freeskiing world!


    Some huge names including Markus Eder and Magnus Granér competed in a rider judged filmed jam session format, a style of competition that resonated with all the riders, and the momentous occasion was covered by both Newschoolers and Downdays, who described it as “The triumphant return of the backcountry freestyle comp” and an “unexpected masterpiece”, respectively. Check out the MGG Instagram and Nendaz Freeride Instagram for lots of content! You can also watch the main highlights edit by clicking on the image at the top of this page.

    The Backcountry Invitational was followed by the hugely successful Nendaz Freeride 2022, which took place between 25th February 2022 and 5th March 2022. You can watch a live replay of the Freeride World Qualifier 4* elite competition, HERE.
