Today's Backcountry Slopestyle contest — and the overall Skiers Cup title — goes to Europe for another year!


SKIERS-CUP-BC-5720

It was no easy victory, but Team Europe prevailed in today’s Backcountry Slopestyle contest in the Andorran backcountry to defend the Skiers Cup title against a stacked Team Americas squad.

Already leading 9-7 after Saturday’s Big Mountain portion of the competition, the eight skiers of Team Europe prevailed again today on the backcountry slopestyle course sculpted by Arnaud Rougener and his team of shapers—seven jumps scattered across a playful backcountry zone across the valley from the Andorran ski resort of Granvalira.

We’ll have a full event report from today’s event coming soon — until then, here are the results from today’s head-to-head matchups.
