The Kumi Yama event is gaining popularity every year. It truly has no equal internationally and its reputation is unprecedented. Just last year, athletes such as X-Games medalists, world champions, freestyle newcomers, icons and pioneers, “stars” and “old-timers”, as well as amateurs were together representing over 12 countries. It’s an event where different generations of freeskiers and snowboarders get together in a unique atmosphere to enjoy Les 2 Alpes’ snowpark.

The Kumi Yama is unique in every sense:
*Season: Summer
*Theme: Japanese inspired event
*Competition style: Kamikaze, where riders compete against each other in teams of three. Through qualifiers, amateurs also have the opportunity to compete with and against pro-riders in the finals.
*The usual slopestyle course is now spiced up with Japanese inspired features: torii, gong, temple...
*Riders: Since we are honoring Japan, this event welcomes the best Japanese pro-riders. However, beside empire-of-the sun natives, the event also welcomes athletes from all four corners of the world.
