After many days of shooting at the colossal castle the invited riders were amped to push the level of riding in the jam session. Spectators basked in the sun on Mottolino Fun Mountain cheering while the girls sent it. Lisa Zimmermann claimed the top spot out of the freeskiers with her two best tricks, a breezy 900 tail grab and by stomping her very first switch 1080 mute. Elena Könz (SUI) was the snowboard winner with her signature backside 540 mute and frontside 720 melon.
