Take a look at all the incredible action that went down at the 2017 Scandinavian Big Mountain Championships. Here’s the video summary!

17.05.11 Moa Wärvik and Jon Sallinen win Rookie of the year titles!

The Peak Performance “Rookie of the year” titles goes out to the most outstanding achievement among the young and unestablished riders, women and men, in the Scandinavian Big Mountain Championships.

Moa Wärvik, 19 years of age, came to the SBMC and did her first start ever in a big mountain competition. She normally spends her days in the slopes racing gates, but she skied the terrain in Riksgränsen like it was her home turf and ended up in third place in the finals!

Jon Sallinen, 16 years of age from Helsinki in Finland, made it to the finals where he stood out mixing big mountain turns with impressive backflips and freestyle tricks.

 

17.05.10 The 2017 champions are crowned!

Champions were crowned today after the final runs of the Scandinavian Big Mountain Championships.

Today’s final battle for the titles took place on the north face of Nordalsfjäll known as “Insteget”, due to difficult snow conditions at Nordalsbranten. The judges, the crowd on site and thousands of online viewers, got to see some amazing freeride performances.

Kristofer Turdell, the 2017 champion in men’s alpine, & Hedvig Wessel, the 2017 champion in women’s alpine

Kristofer Turdell is the 2017 Scandinavian Champion in men’s alpine. Kristofer, who was in the lead after two runs, ticked all the right boxes for a top score in his last run, giving him the overall title. This was Turdells fourth victory in Riksgränsen. Carl Regnér, who won in 2016 and recently qualified for the 2018 Freeride World Tour, came in second place. Nisse Wersén, a young and promising mogul skier, came in third place, showing that big mountain skiing might be an optional career.

In the women’s alpine class, first and second place were tied in score, but separated due to highest individual score in the competition. Norwegian Hedvig Wessel, is not only an Olympic freestyle skier, she is also the first Norwegian in 17 years to become the Scandinavian Big Mountain Champion. In equal score as Wessel, the champion from last year, Filippa Ring, came in second place. Moa Wärvik, 19 years of age, entered her first big mountain competition and came third! Moa also won the Peak Performance rookie of the year award together with Jon Salinen from Finland.

In the telemark category, Erik Nordin was untouchable. He was in superior lead already after two runs and today he delivered another high speed run including a huge back flip in perfect control.

After three days of solid riding, the champion in men’s snowboard is Joel Burman. The champion in women’s snowboard is Norwegian Siri Solstad who pulled of the best snowboard run of the competition in the finals today.
