Day 1 is done at the Nescafe Champs in Leysin, and it was a mix of American and Finnish riders that were making the most of the unique slopestyle/halfpipe hybrid course. Check the highlights video and qualification results...

Sun, snow, blue skies and clouds. Leysin provide the perfect natural backdrop for the Qualification Day here at the NESCAFÉ CHAMPS, as 14 Women and 24 Men put on an intense show of freestyle snowboarding looking to land the 6 and 10 open places respectively for Friday's Semi Finals. Some small fine tuning overnight resulted in the perfect riding infrastructure for the Qualification session at the 22nd Edition of the NESCAFÉ CHAMPS.
