The Vans Hi Standard series headed to Grindelwald, Switzerland this past weekend for its second successive European stop.

This would be a first for Grindewald in hosting this iconic event and the resort didn’t disappoint. With another strong turn out from the local communities and blue skies supporting, it was another tough day at the office for the judges in deciding who would take home the top prizes.

The events unique format allowed for style and guile amongst the competitors and this was showcased in abundance by Kaspar Hoesli, who took home 1 st prize in the Big Air competition, reminding everyone that you don’t need to spin over 720 to be a champion. In the second event of the day, competitors were introduced to the historic Van Doren Best trick where Moritz Thoenen took the top prize making up for his second place finish in Big Air.
