ENGADINSNOW is one of the longest-running freeride competitions in the Alps. Apart from its long tradition, this event classic has always been all about innovation: after introducing a parallel freeride format last year, the 12th Engadinsnow at Silvaplana, Switzerland, on February 8, 2014 will present another world premiere: For the first time ever, teams of two riders will ride simultaneously the Corvatsch north face and compete with other teams. After each heat, the winning team qualifies for the next round.
At this exciting knockout format, the judges will not only reward the difficulty of the line and the airs as well as a fluid riding style, but also the overall impression of both riders together. That’s why snowboarders, skiers and telemarkers have to rethink their normal strategies: they have to show a great line for themselves but also convince the judges together with their team partner.
