The roots

Click On The Mountain was created in 2009 on the initiative of the Courmayeur Ski and Snowboard School . The idea is very simple: 2 talented snowboard and ski freeriders and a photographer ready for anything.No pre-planned itinerary, the only rule is to follow your instinct.
The challenge, created in Courmayeur, shows 4 teams leaded by a professional photographer who chooses and follows 2 riders, looking for catching their style, their technical and acrobatics skills.They will opt for the most amazing and hidden itineraries, to create a fascinating narration of the athletic act that define the freerider and his world.
