The Stomping Grounds

2 - 25 October 2020

In October The Stomping Grounds starts for the fifth time in Saas-Fee! The high-performance training camp for slopestyle, big air and halfpipe for ski and snowboard takes place every autumn on the Feegletscher and offers training opportunities for ten Olympic disciplines.

Over 200 freestyle ski and snowboard professionals prepare for the season in two 10-day freestyle training sessions. Top stars like Mark McMorris, Scotty James, Anna Gasser and Jamie Anderson will be there this year. Last year, 27 out of 30 medal winners of the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang were in training at The Stomping Grounds Park in Saas-Fee.

The reason, why these top-class athletes come to Saas-Fee is Charles Beckinsale. He is one of the best park and hill builders in the world, together with the Americans Jeremy Carpenter and Brandon Dodds they are building the best preseason freestyle training area.
