The previous week delivered a ginormous load of fresh snow in the Bernese Oberland region. This resulted in a big challenge for park designer Andreas Stoll and his crew as the Oakley Schilthorn Open were meant to take place on March 11. With heaps of motivation, a lot of shovel movement and the necessary load of Swiss serenity the guys created a contest line of-a-kind.
Consequently Ändu Stoll seemed pretty satisfied after the contest: “I received very positive feedback from the riders, which made me truly happy after such a work intense day.”
A unique backdrop, goodies from Radix, Oakley, Amplifi, Pinetime Clothing and QParks as well as prize money in a total value of 1,800 CHF was waiting for the Swiss freestylers. Hence a second call wasn’t necessary to get the best out of all freeskiers:
Thomas Eymann from Interlaken treated himself to the first place, prize money and goodies on this Saturday afternoon. Obviously he was in a good mood after the award ceremony: “It was an absolutely epic day in an awesome park – what else do you want?” Loris Burn became second place and received the Best Trick title with his Switch Cork 7 Dub Japan. Florian Mühlebach made it to the third place.
Belgian freeskier Katrien Aerts collected the ladies title. Robin Grossniklaus became the up-and-coming freeski king ahead of Leon Ingold and Kemke Patrick.
