Team Black Forest Germany is qualified!
The contestant teams for the first Baltic Snow Call have now been chosen. The qualification process has been a very difficult task, because of the many excellent applications we have received from right across the globe. From some of the countries that were interested in competing, we had received two or more applications.
Countries such as India, China, Thailand, Italy, Spain, Mexico, The US and Canada, were all very keen to participate in our first Baltic Snow Call. Unfortunately, due to the number of applications we have received worldwide, we had to limit the number of participating teams to ten. In the future, we intend to open up the competition to invite more teams to take part, making it more exciting and competitive.
For this event, we have finally chosen nine, out of the original ten Baltic Sea countries and one team from China. The following teams that will be taking part in our Baltic Snow Call 2018 are as follows:
