Engadinsnow Freeride 2014 in Silvaplana, Switzerland

Recent snowfalls have turned the North Face of Mount Corvatsch into paradise for freeriders. ENGADINSNOW is one of the longest-running freeride competitions in the Alps. After introducing a parallel freeride format last year, the 12th ENGADINSNOW at Silvaplana, Switzerland held during the last weekend presented another world premiere: For the first time ever, teams of two riders rode simultaneously the Corvatsch north face and competed with other teams.
