In the men's snowboard division Austrian dad Flo Orley was on top of his game and took victory with a solid run combining a lot of features.

Flo was incredibly happy: “This has been a tough season for me but with constant improvement race after race, I now have a goal to go and compete in Verbier where I have been competing the last 12 consecutive years. So, I don't want to miss it this year.”
 
 
Swiss Emilien Badoux, won the Freeride World Qualifier in Røldal in 2010, seems to like the Norwegian mountains and got the second best score of the day with multiple drops and stable landings. Newcomer on the tour, Christian Schnabel from Austria didn't hesitate and went fast, which put him in third place. Chamoniard Jonathan “Douds” Charlet is still leading the overall ranking after a fourth place today.
 
In the women's snowboarding French freestyle rider Margot Rozies is going from strength to strength her first season on freeride competitions. Today she didn't get the best light but that did not seem to stop her. She rode fast, fluid and took great air on the last two cliffs.
 
Rozies sits on second place on the overall ranking: ”I am really happy with my run. I was super stressed on top and when I started I was lost on the top ridge, so I climbed back up and started again. This victory gives me a great boost for the overall ranking and the title is now my goal. ”
 
Second place went to American Shannan Yates, who did a creative line in the mid section and stomped her cliffs. Maria DeBari, also from the US, continues her podium streak and came third, meaning she still has top position on the overall ranking.
