Europe’s first city Big Air event of the season rolled into Modena this weekend, bringing with it what FIS called the biggest scaffolding jump of its kind built on Italian soil. The Swiss Freeski Team made a dominant showing in the qualifications, with Fabian Bösch and Kai Mahler winning the two men’s heats, while Mathilde Gremaud claimed the women’s top qualifying spot.

In the finals, highlights included a switch triple 12 and double bio 12 from Henrik Harlaut, a switch double 14 seatbelt japan + tail and dub 16 stale from Alex Hall, and a classy double cork 7 safety to cossack from Alex Bealeaui-Marchand. Ruud bagged the top spot with a switch double cork 16 tail and switch dub 14 tail to tail, followed by A-Hall in second and Andri Ragettli (switch double misty 16 safety, triple cork 16 safety) in third.

On the women’s side, Gremaud prevailed with the help of a switch bio 900 and switch rodeo 720 mute, followed by Swiss teammate Sarah Hoefflin (switch right and switch left 720s) in second, and Germany’s Kea Kühnel (cork 7 safety) in third.
