The Boss des Bosses is taking place in Verbier on 21st March 2018 and we are looking for mogul skiers and snowboarders to represent the home team.

We plan to meet on the slopes, for a few hours of bumping, at least once a week from early January. So, if you want to be considered simply 'like' this page and we will send you alerts as to where and when we will meet. Oh and invite your friends too :)

Following a 20 year stint in the Chamonix valley, the 22nd edition of the Boss des Bosses will take place in Verbier, Switzerland on 16th March 2016.

Founder, Tom Banfield, organised the first Boss des Bosses in Chamonix back in 1990, throwing down the gauntlet to a friend from Val d’Isère to settle their dispute over which resort had the best skiers. Since then other resorts, including Zermatt, Verbier, Meribel and Courcheval have joined the fun in the sun and fought it out over a series of 21 annual events. Tom explains that after a 5 year hiatus, ‘the Phoenix rises again.’ This time on the Swiss side of the boarder, where he has been warmly welcomed by Téléverbier.

For the 2016 event, teams and supporters from Zermatt, Chamonix and Portes du Soleil will join Verbier for Europe’s biggest inter-resort, head-to-head mogul competition. Male and female athletes navigate a steep section of snowy bumps (’bosses’ in french) scoring points for speed, style and two giant jumps, which are built into the course. Each team includes skiers, snowboarders, télémarkers and a mono-skier, battling it out to impress the judges and to determine which resort has the best skiers. Participants must possess a season pass for the resort they represent. Prizes are awarded for the winning team, the best run, best jump, best wipeout and best costume.

“The Phoenix rises again!”


Two time French National Champion, Ben Cavet, representing Portes du Soleil, will race against the likes of extreme ski legend, Glen Plake, who lives in Chamonix. While Glenn is a Boss des Bosses veteran, it’s a first for 22 year old, British born Ben, who was World Junior Champion and came a respectable 8th at the Sochi Olympics. It’s guaranteed to be a thrilling series of battles.
