People on their ski holiday in Arosa were among the 4,000 spectators who turned out for another event, the popular Parallel Giant Slalom.
Ekatarina Tudigescheva won the ladies' competition, with local favourite Fraenzi Kohli coming third, while for the men, Rok Flander took the title, with another Swiss, Heinz Inniger, also ending in the bronze position.
The ability and agility of competitors in the FIS Snowboard World Championships never ceases to impress and has offered those on ski holiday in Arosa the perfect opportunity to pick up some pointers to practise on the piste.
