The Poney Session 2015 Kicks Off

The big day of the 13th edition of the Poney Session has arrived! The best French and international snowboarders arrived on Wednesday evening to come together near the snowpark in Saint-Lary. This unique French and European competition in the World Snowboard Tour promises to be an amazing show. This 13th edition is devoted to the ferias of the South-West and patroned by none other than local and internationally renowned snowboarder Mathieu Crépel.

Training began this morning under blue skies and Mathieu Crépel’s careful watch. Mathieu dressed in his red and white outfit for this occasion to best orchestrate this showdown between the Matadors and the Taureaux (bulls).
The Poneys, be they American, Finnish, Norwegian, or Swiss, have come from all over the world to participate in the most off-the-wall and atypical WST contest!

Let’s remember that beyond the sporting aspect of this event, the Poney Session is a festival of urban cultures, offering over the course of 4 days numerous free activities such as Live Painting, Graphic Session (a collective painting activity), demonstrations and introductions to Break Dancing by DANS 6T, babyfoot, or even skateboarding with the return of the ‘Cash for Tricks’ by Element. Equally important are the two evenings consisting of a very interesting program. What a great way to remember this last week of holiday.
