The event is designed as part of a process of development of snowboarding and skiing in the sand dunes; where the culture of winter sports riders mingles with the developing culture of the sand with the practice of sandboarding and sandskiing.
Also, as a social contribution for future generations who live in deserts and who do not know snow, but who can be influenced by the culture of winter sports by athletes who practice this physical activity since they were children.
In the event will participate riders who practice sandboarding, sandskiing and especially snowboarding and skiing.
From Europe we already have confirmed riders which we will be making known as the date of the event approaches.

Peru will be the host country of this first edition of the Freestyle SandSnow, this incredible country is being known worldwide for its extensive desert of dunes and landscape, where not only Machupicchu catalog it as a wonder, for many travelers the desert has an incredible connection with nature and yourself.
The location will be the city of Ica where it is currently the site of major world events such as the Dakar Rally, Marathon de Sable and the Sandboarding World Cup that was organized by us in June 2017.
Located in the city of Ica 310 kilometers south of Lima (capital of Peru), the Oasis Huacachina is a place similar to a ski resort but in the sand, where you can find many accommodations, restaurants and bohemian nights with the only charm that the desert can offer you.
PARTNER EVENT EUROPE
Winter Sports Festival is our partnership for the Freestyle SandSnow, where the winners of this amazing event will be present in Peru to share a nice experience on the sand with riders of the sand and snow.
Winter Sports Festival is an event that for 14 years attracts players from all over Europe. Its history began in 2004 in Zieleniec, when for the first time freeskiers from Poland and the Czech Republic gathered in one place to face the very large ski jumping hill for those days. As Andrzej Lesiewski, the originator and main organizer of the event organized for the next 12 years under the name of the Polish Freeskiing Open, recalled – “The supreme aim of the Zieleniecka event was to integrate the Polish freeskiers’ environment. The plan was made – everyone came, jumped and met, including an amazingly successful afterparty in the iconic bar “5”.
