Snowboard Tour Hits Switzerland for Crans-Montana Open

The Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour makes a stop in Switzerland this week for the 4-Star Crans Montana Champs Open presented by Rip Curl. This Slopestyle contest is set to culminate on 8th February when the lucky winner will get their hands on a whopping $50,000 prize purse along with 700 TTR ranking points.

Offering one of the most progressive slopestyle set-ups on the tour, the Crans Montana Champs Open will host 20 invited riders and open qualifications for the semi-finals that will then move into a 12-rider final. Among the top male riders competing are Swiss local Gian Simmen, and Italian ripper Manuel Pietropoli who could move into the Top 20 with a good result in Switzerland.

The Women’s Tour drama continues to unfold with French shredder Margot Rozies looking to make a huge leap from World No 87 into the Swatch TTR Top 40. All eyes will also be on Swiss rider Sina Candrian who is currently TTR World No 6 and could move into the No 2 with a good result here. Fellow Swiss ripper Ursina Haller could make World No. 5 if she wins, and Conny Bleicher from Germany would be set to make the TTR Top Ten with a win at Crans-Montana.

Due to a combination of jumps, rails, and transitions, the Crans-Montana Champs Open will see only the most well-rounded riders come out on top with some truly original lines. Riders will start with two kickers at the top followed by three rail and box options. Immediately following is a mini super-pipe that will allow between 3 and 4 hits, which then leads into a Quarterpipe at the end. Riders will have to prove they have what it takes to master every type of feature and transition if they wish take home a piece of the big prize pie on offer.
