Boss des Bosses is almost here!

The inter-resort mogul showdown is back!

Legend has it that back in 1990, in a late night bar in Val D’Isere, an argument broke out one night as to which resort had the best skiers. The following season, Val D’Isere took on Chamonix to settle the score with a competition to prove their mountain skills.

The year after, Verbier, Zermatt and later, Meribel all joined to flex their best ski legs and the Boss des Bosses was born!

Over time, it developed mainly into the largest inter-resort mogul contest, but also a celebration of all mountain enthusiasts, from skiers to snowboarders, telemarkers to bladers. As long as you can navigate a mogul like a pro, you’re in!

Although the competition “officially” ended in 2008, it has unofficially made a comeback, and this year is being hosted in Verbier on 15th March. This marks the 23rd year of Boss des Bosses and Zermatt will be back to defend their title against the finest resorts in the Alps.

Each team includes 9 skiers, 2 telemarkers, 1 snowboarder and 1 mono skier, with a minimum of two females in each line up. Expect crazy outfits, rowdy supporters and some of the best slinky-hipped skiing out there…with a few awesome tricks thrown into the mix. Teams from all resorts bring with them their most enthusiastic fans, so it’s a day packed with fun, fancy dress and entertaining races.

After steaming down the moguls, the après ski party will no doubt be a crazy event, with prizes being awarded at Le Rouge Bar for the winning team, the best jump, the best wipeout and the best costume. Sungod are sponsoring the prizes so there’ll be some great gear up for grabs.

The bumps are being made as we speak so we’ll see you at the finish line!
