    “Damn, the contest went well,” said Ettala. “I got 1st place, which is always sick, and kind of won it out of the blue. I ended up doing a backside 1080 late cork, first time ever trying that trick, never mind landing it!”

    Freestyle.ch not only represents the largest non-winter freeskiing event in the world, but also helps place freeskiing in the action sport community, along with snowboarding, FMX-ing and skateboarding. Other organizations claim to have big pre-season big air events, but Freestyle.ch really is the best and brightest. Top names compete for big prizes, in downtown Zurich, in front of thousands upon thousands of spectators. This event is one of the bookmakrs in the season, one of the events that athletes will make it to — or at least try to. Freeskiing as a whole, and especially in Europe, benefit immensely from Freestyle.CH’s reach, scope and prestige. Oakley Swedish skier Jacob Wester won the 2008 North American Open Slopestyle, as well as the 2008 Freestyle.ch big air with a double cork 1260. We caught up with Jacob to hear his thoughts on this year’s Freestyle.ch.

    Following Oakley freeskier Jacob Wester’s victory in Zurich last year, the American sunglasses and sporting goods manufacturer insisted on bringing in the big guns for this year’s Freestyle.ch. In and around the mobile, high-tech “Rolling O Lab”, Oakley will be presenting the limited edition freestyle.ch snow goggles, daily video highlights direct from the Landiwiese and, of course, top athletes such as Jacob Wester (ski) and Nicolas Müller (snow).
