"In the mouth of the Couloir, No-one can hear you scream"

What better way to finish off the winter season then with the 19th edition of the Saudan Couloir Ski Race Extreme presented by Helly Hansen.

The extreme race of legend and lore, it will bring out legends of ski and snowboard racing, big mountain pros, and a healthy dose of amateur skiers and snowboarders who aren’t afraid to charge.
