The SLVSH is a freeski competition that has been taking place all around the world for a number of years, but with a distinctive feature that makes it unique: the competition takes place on social media! The best riders in the world record their duels and upload them to the Internet. The best riders in the world record videos of their duels and upload them to the website www.slvsh.com and to the different social media channels. These audiovisual productions get a great response in terms of the number of views and comments. The identity of the winner remains unknown until two weeks after the event, when the videos of all the duels have been uploaded to the Internet.
The criteria are creativity, expressiveness, difficulty and innovation in the jumps and pirouettes performed.
Grandvalira hosts this unique event with the aim of promoting both freestyle and the Sunset Park Peretol facilities, but above all for the response that the audiovisual activity generated by the participating riders generates in the online world. According to data from the organisers of the SLVSH Cup, the 16 videos created at the event held in the United States were viewed by a total of 2 million users in France, Scandinavia and the United Kingdom, all of which are potential markets for the Grandvalira brand. Much of this positive response also comes from the United States and Canada.

Alex Hall (USA), Antti Ollila (Finland) and Magnus Graner (Sweden) are good examples.
