Engadinsnow 2019 - Silvaplana/Corvatsch (SUI) - 26min Highlight

Freeriding: Long established event in the heart of the Swiss Alps!

Engadinsnow 2019

February 1 to 2, 2019, St. Moritz-Silvaplana (Switzerland)

A spectacularly steep and rocky powder face, a unique competition and some of the best freeriders in the world: the Engadinsnow has been held annually since 2003 and is therefore one of the oldest freeride events in the Alps. Despite its long tradition, this classic event at Corvatsch (3451 meters) in the Swiss ski resort of St. Moritz-Silvaplana still focuses on innovation. The north face of the Corvatsch is up to 65 degrees steep and offers ideal conditions for freeriders with lots of rocks and deep powder snow fields. Local mountain guides and the safety team work in the area for weeks before the event to ensure the best possible safety for the international athletes. 120 of the world’s best freeriders from 16 nations have registered for the 17th edition of this legendary event. Some of them also take part in the world’s largest Freeride World Qualifier, which takes place here on the same weekend as part of the Engadinsnow.
