For the snowboarders, look to a strong Japanese team featuring Reira Iwabuchi, Kokomo Murase and Miyabi Onitsuka, as well as Laurie Blouin (CAN), Mia Brookes (GBR) and, hopefully, Anna Gasser (AUT) to make some noise for the women, while Valentino Guseli (AUS), Sean Fitzsimons (USA), Sven Thorgren (SWE) and Taiga Hasegawa (JPN) will be a few of the names to watch out for on the men’s side of things.
One other thing of note here at the Big Air Chur is the brand-new jump set-up, which features 35m of the world-renowned JF Dry Ski technology on the in-ramp, which then transitions to snow a few meters before the compression, with the jump and landing constructed of snow as per usual.
Feedback on the in-run through Wednesday’s training has been overwhelmingly positive, with some athletes stating they can’t even notice the difference, and others suggesting the JF Dry Ski drop in is even better than snow. All we know is that it’s working, and it’s working well.
