Ritsch’s Roll | Comedy big air competition

Ritsch's Roll Backcountry Invitational

Nine of the world’s finest freeskiers, a gigantic hand-built backcountry jump, a wack judging system and surprise ending. Ritsch’s Roll is 58 minutes of pure big air entertainment (with a twist).

It’s hard to know what you’re watching, the line is so blurred between skit and competition in Ritsch’s Roll. But it’s nine big-name riders going head-to-head in this big air backcountry competition, including host of the event Tom Ritsch (AUT), Freeride World Tour winner Markus Eder (ITA), freeski legend Tanner Hall (USA), X Games medalist Ferdinand Dahl (NOR) and Olympic bronze medal winner Alex Beaulieu-Marchand (CAN).

This is Ritsch’s Roll Backcountry Invitational, produced by Legs of Steel:

A word from the self-proclaimed director of the event:

“Not everything went perfect and we had to cut the live feed a bit early due to a small accident and the judging data was deleted, so there are no official results. Overall we are happy with the event though.”
