It's been only three races last season, but those three races (plus the world champs) were enough for Sandra Gerber and Tim Watter to make Switzerland's national team member status.

Gerber, coming from the pro team status, stepped up her game last winter with three top-10 finishes on the circuit and a well-deserved sixth rank in the World Cup standings.

Watter, who was only a challenger last winter, constantly survived the first rounds of the World Cup events finishing his season off with a 13 overall rank, his career's second semi final appearance at World Cup races and – with the poor WC calendar given – an impressive Europa Cup title win.

In addition, ten more riders made the snowboard cross pro and challenger team.
