King of the Mountain 2013 at Andermatt
One snow-covered Swiss mountain. Some of the world’s best freeride snowboarders and skiers. One goal – to get from top to bottom as quickly as possible.
Who will make it down the fastest, and be crowned King – or Queen – of the Mountain 2013?
On 6th April at Andermatt, we’ll find out.
King of the Mountain, held each year since 2005 at Andermatt-Gotthard, is one of Switzerland’s most popular annual open freeride events. It attracts competitors from across the globe with an incredible variety of terrains to cover (gorges, slopes, cliffs and bluffs) and an outstanding degree of freedom left to the competitors as to just what route they choose. This is one of the highlights of the Alpine winter season – and an event that all Andermatt Swiss Alps look forward to eagerly.
King of the Mountain, ‘the ultimate crossover event’, is open to skiers, snowboarders and Telemark skiers, pitted against one another – and against the spectacular scenery. While we have runs and pistes to suit all abilities, it’s an exhilarating pleasure to watch the most daring and brilliant skiers tackle Andermatt’s toughest terrains.
If you think you have it in you to take on the mountains and win, then registration is now open.
And, if you think you might need a year or two more to hone your skills before taking part, plan a day on the slopes on 12th April so you can watch and learn from the skills on show.
