Ueli Kestenholz's playground is the Jungfrau region of Switzerland. His 'ride anything' philosophy means that his equipment changes according to the conditions. Ueli might not know what he's going to be riding each day, but you can be assured that it's going to be worth watching.
It's another powder day on Schilthorn mountain and Ueli has a problem: does he bust out the snowboard for some backcountry freeriding, or does he unfold the wing, dust off the skis and take to the air? Luckily for us, he chooses the wing. There is some debate about whether the sport should be called speedriding or speedflying. After you see Ueli's run, his take on the matter should be apparent. This style of speedriding is particular to the Jungfrau region where riders prefer to keep their skis in the snow.
