Heavy snowfalls in the Engadine valley make hearts beat of the freeriders faster. It’s a fantastic finish to the 17th edition of the ENGADINSNOW by Dakine 2019 as perfect snow conditions meet beautiful weather on the Alpetta face of the Corvatsch, featuring 130 of the world’s best freeriders from 24 different nations in the categories snowboard and freeski. Eirik Schjolberg from Norway left the competition behind in the men’s freeski competition, while Denmark’s Malene Madsen finished on top of the female leaderboard. The ranking of the snowboarders was led by German Marion Sebald for the ladies and Belgium’s Koen Goris for the men.

The intensive preparations of the mountain guides and the whole security team paid off nicely. New snowfall in recent days and changing winds didn’t make it easy for the control squad, who ensure that the best possible safety conditions are present. Several blasts were needed to guarantee safe conditions and minimize chances of avalanches in the area designated for the riders of the Engadinsnow by Dakine. Thanks to their excellent work, riders were able to showcase their skills at Corvatsch 3303.
