The fifth edition of the Swatch Skiers Cup will be marked by the loss of one of skiings most remarkable and truly inspirational human beings, JP Auclair (CAN), former captain of Team Americas who won the competition last winter. He passed away in an avalanche accident late September together with fellow freeskier Andreas Fransson, in Patagonia.
