Join us and friends for La Dedern Association’s annual springtime ski event, The Magic D. Jam-packed with freestyle competitions, BBQ, music, drinks and prizes; it’s one not to miss.

Join us and friends next Wednesday (22nd March 2017) for La Dedern Association’s annual springtime ski event, The Magic D. Organised by Martin Moreau, the La Dedern day is jam-packed with freestyle activities and competitions, as well as the chance to win some awesome goodies and prizes. It’s hosted in our very own Magic Garden (which is located at the top of the Rhodos bubble) and runs from 11:00 – 16:45. 

With music pumping, burgers sizzling, drinks flowing and smiles all-round, the Dedern Association’s annual event is open to all ages and abilities and is definitely one not to miss.

Now in its 15th year, La Dedern is an event that is extremely close to Martin and our team’s hearts. The first one took place back in March 2002 as a dedication to one of our beloved instructors – Greg, aka Dedern – who tragically died in an avalanche in January 2002.

Organised by Martin and his other close friends and colleagues from Barcelonnette in Les Hautes Alpes as a tribute to Greg’s life and love of freestyle, La Dedern is now one of the most popular activity-ski-days for locals, seasonaires and tourists alike.

Not into freestyle? No problem. There really is something for everyone:


Show what you got or try something new and head for the jumps, boxes and water slide. In fact, why not stretch that competitive streak and challenge your friends to a game of ‘In Your Face’. Go on… dare ya.


Watch as the instructors swap their skis for spatulas and turn their skills to the BBQ. Trade your coins for tokens in the DJ tent (€2.50 each) and cash-in on a burger or sandwich for just 2 tickets a pop.


With beer on tap, rosé from the bottle and soft drinks from the can – at the cost of just one ticket – why not grab a wad of tickets on arrival and keep hydrated throughout the day?


Has your little one got a competitive streak? Martin and his team will be running the All Mountain Rider contest for those aged 6 to 12, which consists of speed tests, freeride and freestyle events. Each competitor will receive points for their performance across the three events and the highest-scoring little shredder will go on to receive their prize.


Enter our #MagicDMeribel photo competition on Instagram for a chance to win some awesome freebies, including Magic branded neck warmers and Chloe Parka beanies. The winners of best trick, biggest bail and many more categories will be getting their mitts on our goodies, so go hard or go home (empty handed). #inittowinit


Sign up at the DJ tent on arrival. All contestants will receive a free Magic branded neck warmer – reason enough to register, right?
