The second annual Swatch Skiers Cup

officially kicked off this weekend in Valle Nevado, Chile, where two eight-man

teams of the world's best freeskiers go head-to-head in big

mountain and backcountry slopestyle during the one and only continental

team freeski event.

May the best team win!

To help celebrate the beginning of one of the coolest events in skiing,

the good people at Swatch want to hook one of you up with a free Swatch

Skiers Cup special edition watch, and all you have to do to win is list

your own Swatch Skiers Cup fantasy teams!

The Swatch Skiers Cup special edition watches.

To enter, head on over to the corresponding thread in Ski Gabber

and post your fantasy teams between now and this Thursday, September 6th

(only one entry per username, and please do not post your fantasy teams

in the comments below, as they will not be eligible). You must pick

eight riders for each team (Team Americas and Team Europe), and each

rider for Team Americas must be from the Western Hemisphere, while each

rider for Team Europe must be from the Eastern Hemisphere. Also keep in

mind that your teams can include riders who are already competing at

this year's Swatch Skiers Cup (click here to check out the teams) or not.

Once you've created your teams, the captains of Team Americas and Team

Europe (Cody Townsend and Sverre Liliequist) will go through the thread

and pick the post that includes their favorites fantasy teams, and then

we'll announce the winner at the conclusion of the second annual Swatch

Skiers Cup on Sunday, September 9th.
