Blizzard & Tecnica Send-It winner

Our Free Mountain team did not have an easy job deciding as the jury about the winner of our Blizzard & Tecnica Send-It video contest. We received several really good edits, full of great skiing, creative filming and editing. After our community voted for their favorites, our team chose the winners out of them. With the best overall impression, Jacob Schimmelpennig, won the contest. "He showed the best combination of skiing and filming skills. After the community-voting he was on top as well. No doubts, with Jacob we got the right guy to win our Send-It contest", commented Christian Leischner, Blizzard & Tecnica Free Mountain teamcaptain.
Jacob has been invited to the Blizzard & Tecnica Free Mountain athlete summit in Cortina D´Ampezzo, where he was honored by the whole team and received a brand new set of Cochise skis and boots from Blizzard brand manager Stefano Trentin. On top, Jacob had the chance to ride with the pros, joined some professional backcountry shootings and had a lot of fun partying with the team. 
The young german, based in Munich, finished his high school degree last summer and spent most of the winter as a skiing coach at the freeride hotspot St. Anton (Arlberg), the perfect terrain for his new equipment. 
Congratulations, Jacob and keep on riding with us!
