Bad news first: Due to the too warm weather in the past 2-3 weeks, the halfpipe at Davos Bolgen won’t be ready for the Swiss Freeski Open on January 14. Therefore the halfpipe Swiss Champs have to be cancelled. Riders who have already payed the starting fee will be refunded. Whether and where the Swiss Champs can be staged later in the season is not clear yet. We will keep you posted.

Good news is: We have more time for the slopestyle! The set up is epic with a massive kicker and a decent rail section. Check out the O’Neill Evolution this weekend to get a glimpse of what is going to get down at the Swiss Freeski Open.
