The North American portion of the 2015/2016 AFP World Tour officially kicked off last weekend with the first of four stops on the Bronze-level
Swiss Freeski Open Tour at Glacier 3000 in Switzerland, so it’s time for a quick look at how the AFP Global Rankings have been affected. Before we do though, the AFP would like to take our hats off to the event organizers behind the Swiss Freeski Open, who were truly a pleasure to work with and went beyond the call of duty when it came to communicating with us before, during and after the event (including submitting their results template, rider list, and getting their judges to fill out judging reports, all on their own accord).

On to the results and how they affected the Global Rankings, beginning with Men’s Slopestyle, where Colin Wili is on the board in 496th after picking up the win. In second was Cesar Fabre, who is up three spots to 104th, while Till Matti remains in 39th after taking third.

On the ladies’ side of things, Tess Ledeux continues to hold down 21st after emerging victorious, while Mathilde Gremaud and Anni Karava have slid themselves up one spot each into 80th and 67th thanks to scoring second and third, respectively.
On the Men’s & Women’s Overall rankings, there are no significant changes to report, but stay tuned to afpworldtour.com over the next week and a half, as one of the biggest events of the year, the Platinum-level Dew Tour, begins next Wednesday in Breckenridge, Colorado (click here to see who will be competing).
