Europe vs America: Who will have the best skiers this year?

For the 6th year in a row, comes the Skiers Cup America vs Europe, one of the most emblematic events on the ski world. Starting from January 30th and February 4th, the best freeriders and freestylers of the world will be reunited.

An intercontinental battle
The Skiers Cup confronts, since 5 years ago, the best professionals of ski of America and Europe, to check who has the best skiers. At the moment, the scores are closed with 3 “Ski boots” for Europe and 2 for America. This year, Americans have the chance to get back in and equal the Europeans, or give them for the 4th time the victory.

Two strong teams
America will appear with a team formed by great skiers like Grant Howard, Parker White or Logan Pehota, and will be leaded by Sage Cattagriga-Alosa, a crossover style Pioneer. Europe will have to fight against them with a team under the commands of Richar Permin, famous for competing with all of his strength, and will have skiers like Fabio Studer, Bene Mayr or Markus Eder.

The perfect slopes
Even if the Big Mountain race awaits the confirmation of its location, the Backcountry slopestyle race will take place on the Cubil highest peak, one of the highest points of Grandvalira’s slopes. This peak situated in Encamp on the Tarter sector, is oriented towards the north, a position which gives it the best condition to have the most abundant and perfect snow to extreme freeriding.

We are all ready for what looks like one of the most intense competitions of the season. Will you miss it?
