Crap Show by Snowpark Laax

2016 has started nicely, we had a lot of fun riding the snowpark in Laax. We didn’t had any powder over new years so I spent a lot of time in the park… The new Crap Show is out now check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0mE-LmQXCo

European Open Week

The European Open is for sure a special event for me! Two very different things that it makes this event so special for me: as I started to get into the freestyle scene I had no clue about how big the European Open is. All my friends decided to compete in the event and I thought why not? As a junior I started in the slopestyle contest- without knowing how good or bad I was compered to all the other riders. So I dropped in and enjoyed the ride down through the course! It was an amazing feeling and I knew I love snowboarding with my heard and I has so much fun- but i didn’t know that I was good in it! At the price giving I was freaking out as I heard “and the winner is Sina Candrian”- I thought it was a mistake! Not really understanding what was going on during this week with winning both junior events- slopestyle and pipe, competing as well in the women finals in the pipe and got 2nd behind Kelly Clark…! Suddenly my career as a snowboard professional started- without having noticed it!

Second of this specialty about this event is, that the event is happening on the same mountain on which I learned how to stand sideways! It is crazy how much this mountain and the locals means to me- how much love and support I get while the competition is running in Laax. I am so thankful to have this mountain just in front of my house! A dream for a snowboarder, we have one of the biggest resorts to powder every where, we have the biggest pipe on earth and we have the most creative slopestyle! What I want more? Thanks to the park shapers in Laax and thanks for all the people making this home so wonderful!

World Champs in Kreischberg

Elena Könz with the Gold and myself with bronze

This were eight crazy days in Kreischberg! It was a hard challenge to ride in both discipline Slopestyle and Big Air! It started really good in the slopestyle and i won the qualification, two days later i couldn’t repaid my good performance and landed on the unluckily 4th place.

In the big air I was feeling really comfortable, as i knew this jump all ready from the slopestyle course! I had a easy qualification and was super stoked to ride yesterdays final! Again, my performance were o.k but not enough, or not enough good how i wanted to do it, but in the end enough to step on the podium as 3rd! First I was a little disappointed, but now i am stoked about this wold champ bronze medal.

In the end we got home with a lot of medals, Elena Könz won the Big Air, Fabian Bösch won the Ski Slopestyle, Virgine Faivre won the Pipe, Mirjam Jäger got third in the Ski Pipe,  Fanny Smith got third in the Skicross, Yannic Lerjen got third in Ski Pipe…

Now I’m enjoying my Sunday off the slopes and can’t wait  for the European Open here in Laax!
