Swatch is proud to present the Swatch Skiers Cup! The world’s first continental freeride competition sees top-flight teams from America and Europe going head-to-head in a series of spectacular man-to-man showdowns in both big mountain and backcountry slopestyle disciplines. Captain Americas (Cody Townsend) and Captain Europe (Kaj Zackrisson) hand- pick their teams from the world’s top freeride skiers and are keen to take home the prestigious Swatch Skiers Cup trophy.
After the first two editions in Valle Nevado, Chile with Team Europe winning in 2011 and Team Americas in 2012, the Swatch Skiers Cup moved to Zermatt, Switzerland in 2013 with Team Europe leading Team Americas by a score of 2-1. The 4th edition in the shadow of the Matterhorn promises to make history as the impending showdown is set to take place from January 4-10, 2014.
