Team Bio

Elena Stern made her Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling series debut in the 2018 Tour Challenge Tier 2 and won the title to earn a promotion into the elite ranks for the Meridian Canadian Open where her team has remained since. The team also captured the Women’s Masters Basel title.

Briar Hürlimann represented Switzerland four times at the world juniors and once at the Winter Universiade. She is the daughter of Patrick Hürlimann, who skipped Switzerland to gold at the 1998 Nagano Winter Games when curling made its full-medal return to the Olympics.
