With over 100 riders and a start list of who is who in the world of slopestyle freestyle skiing, the level of riding was extremely high on March 2nd, 2017 for the Freeski World Cup Qualifiers in beautiful Silvaplana near St Moritz. Riders had to dig deep into their trick bags to impress the judges and make it through to the final round and many a big name riders came up short. With a perfectly reshaped course and sunny skies, local Swiss rider Andri Ragetti qualified in top place and is looking to defend his title from last year. NZ's Jossi Wells qualified fourth in his heat, successfully making the cut for the 16-man final.
Winners will be crowned on Friday March 3rd. You can watch all the action live on the webcast. Tune in to www.corvatsch.ch/live from 22:30 NZT (local time) Friday 3rd March 2017.
