WHO TO WATCH – FREESKI

For the women it’s France’s Tess Ledeux leading the way, as the winner of last year’s Big Air Chur and the big air silver medallist at the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games will be looking to extend her streak of big air World Cup podiums to four in a row this weekend.

The host Swiss squad will be well-represented as always, with their Olympic slopestyle gold medallist duo of Beijing 2022 winner Mathilde Gremaud and PyeongChang 2018 winner Sarah Hoefflin always a threat for the podium.

Canadian style masters Olivia Asselin and Megan Oldham, rising British ripper Kirsty Muir, and Sandra Eie of Norway are a few of the other names to keep an eye on on the women’s freeski side of things.

The men’s freeski lineup is looking like the deepest of any start lists set to drop in on Chur this weekend, with Beijing 2022 big air gold medallist Birk Ruud leading the way.

However, Ruud will be in tough against the likes of last year’s Chur winner Matej Svancer of Austria, stylish Canadian Max Moffat, reigning big air World Champion Oliwer Magnusson, and an incredibly deep host Swiss team that includes the likes of all-time Freeski World Cup podiums leader Andri Ragettli, Fabian Boesch, Kim Gubser, and the Wili brothers Colin and Thierry.

Finally, keep an eye on Finland’s Elias Syrja, who was establishing himself as one of the most exciting big air skiers in the world before a devastating knee injury in February 2020 knocked him out of competition for two and half years. Regardless of his result on Friday, the fact that he has worked himself back into World Cup shape and is on hand for this weekend’s action is an incredible achievement.
