Starlight, the other competing team, finished 2nd with 11 points difference. Two foreign teams also took part in the competition: Kometa Junior from the Czech Republic and the Australian team Majestic Ice. Team Emerald, the third Swiss team, finished 5th.

The Swiss championships were also for the Advanced Novices category. The young Cool Dreams were crowned national champions, followed by Starlight and Team Ruby from Basel. Kometa (CZE) finished 2nd in the international ranking. 

The competition was also interesting in the Mixed Age where six teams competed. The Snowflakes took the gold with a good score of 69.85, and in the Seniors B, a division that is becoming popular in Switzerland. Here too, the victory went to the Cool Dreams Royal. 

Other categories also competed, such as Juveniles, Basic Novices, Adults and Masters. The weekend was very busy and always marks the end of the season for many teams. Switzerland will have another Basilea Trophy at the beginning of April in Basel.
