With weather in Zermatt, Switzerland, Sunday was a free powder day for some of the best freeskiers in the world at The Skiers Cup. But before all the free Swiss shredding, the draw went down and Eddie Bauer skier KC Deane landed a tough head-to-head match up for a freeskiing’s version of the Ryder Cup that pits the best from North America against the best from Europe. The Backcountry Slopestyle portion of the event is now confirmed for 9:30 AM Tuesday, Swiss Standard Time and we’ll be providing updates on the contest on the Live Your Adventure blog and on the Eddie Bauer Facebook page. But for now, check out the video recap from the draw ceremony at The Skiers Cup.
For those who missed our report this weekend, the Cliff’s Notes recap is below:
New Eddie Bauer ski team member KC Deane has been selected to represent Team Americas in the Swatch Skier’s Cup, which runs from January 4th to January 10th in Zermatt, Switzerland. The fourth incarnation of the event matches the world’s best big mountain freeskiers in a team based, head-to head, Europe vs. North America format in the disciplines of backcountry slopestyle and big mountain skiing. The North Americans lost the first Skier’s Cup in Valle Nevado, Chile then battled back in 2012 to even the score at 1-1. Last winter, the event migrated to Europe for the first time with the euros making the most of home slope advantage to earn bragging rights and a 2-1 lead.
