Re: The B&E Inventational, 06 April, 2014 — Les Arcs 1800 (France)
Phil Casabon, a.k.a. B-Dog and Henrik Harlaut, a.k.a. E-Dollo together are B&E. They felt that it was time to make a freeski event that focused as much on style as ‘degree of difficulty’. Invitations have been sent to the best freeskiers in the world to shred one of the most creative and unique features ever built. The invitees are good friends of B&E and happen to be some of the best freeskiers of all time including Candide Thovex (FRA), Tanner Hall (USA) and more.
The venue will offer the best playground for the invited skiers to express their ultimate creativity on snow. An enormous amount of work is needed to offer such playground. The shape and construction of the venue will take 200 hours of snowcat time, 15 days of shaping and over 20,000 cubic meters of snow.
The format: A jam session. The event will be broadcast live via HD live streaming player, brought by E-Adrenaline.fr, and distributed around the world via many partners’ platforms. The show will be broadcast in English and French speaking languages and will be three to four hours in length.
