Elias Ambühl - The big air king

Elias Ambühl was the dominating skier of this autumn’s city contest season. He won all three events that are listed as Gold Level competitions in the AFP calendar – the freestyle.ch in Zurich, the Budapest Fridge, and the King of Style in Stockholm – and currently seems unbeatable in big air. We spoke with the Swiss style machine about the up-coming winter season and his secret to success just before the first major slopestyle competition of the season at the Dew Tour in Breckenridge.

WEGER’S WAY TO WORLD'S ELITE

Young, fast, dead on target. Benjamin Weger, 22, Swiss. Profession: Biathlete, trusting the Atomic Featherlight, one of the lightest skis ever used in the Nordic World Cup.

HIRSCHER SNAPPED AT NEXT CHANCE

1, 2, 3. After the victory and 2nd place in the Giant Slalom double Atomic star Marcel Hirscher finished the US tour with 3rd place in the Slalom. The athlete from Salzburg took off from the bird of prey slope with the Atomic D2 race and – like a bird of prey – preyed a total of 240 world cup points. The material evolution in the Atomic setup supported Hirscher in reaching his 16th world cup podium place.

RED BULL HÜTTENRALLYE MOVED TO 2012

As winter is yet to descend on the Austrian alps, those taking part in the Red Bull Huettenrallye can keep their skis stored in their ski huts for a little while longer. In order to guarantee an exciting and safe race through a challenging run on a perfect slope, the freeski 6 cross event at St. Anton am Arlberg has been delayed to January 2012. US ski star Daron Rahlves will of course still be there at the start of the year and pit himself against local challengers.
