The Freeski Joust Tournament – BIG AIR
On Saturday march 16th all the Queens will compete against each other in the equivalent of a freeski jousting tournament; the battle royale BIG AIR competition. The athletes show their skills on a 24m floating kicker, which gives them all the airtime they need to show the world exactly how far female freeskiing has come.
15 riders will throw down their best tricks in the qualifying jam session. The top 5 athletes will advance to the finals, where they can show 3 more tricks. The winner will be the girl with the two highest scoring and most unique tricks. With victory comes the unofficial title of being “Queen of the world”.
We want YOU in Serfaus to cheer as loud as you can!!!
