As an early Christmas-gift for all snowboard-fans, the Horsefeatheres Superpark Planai opens its gates on the 19th of December 2009. Its “big brother”, the Atomic Superpark Dachstein, will be open at least until the 13th December. This will be a seamless transition to the upcoming winter season and once again, the Schladming-Dachstein region provides 10 months of freestyle!
In the course of the summer 09, QParks has heavily worked on the earth-terrain-forms and now the Horsefeathers Superpark Planai lights up in a completely new shine: The complete park-area was extended, a new 3 laned medium and pro kicker-line has been installed and the whole beginner and intermediate section has been expanded with new rails and boxes. Bernd Mandlberger and his crew will prepare as many obstacles as possible for the big opening on Dec 19th. Because of the warm temperature there is unfortunately too less snow at the moment for building up a decent set-up. Against the forecast Bernd and his team have decided to set up at least the beginners line. Needless to say, they are waiting impatiently for the first “real” snow.
At the opening there will be free coaching with snowboard pro-riders such as Max Weickl who placed 3rd at the Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam, be sure he can give you some helpful tips and tricks. Another highlight will be the public Photo – and Film-shooting at which all riders get the opportunity for having professional pictures taken of oneself at various obstacles. The final material can be downloaded on www.horsefeatherssuperpark.com And to be sure you won’t get bored if taking some timeout between your runs, our speaker and the tuning beats of LIVE DJ tdk will keep you entertained. To regain energy, at 2 pm the riders-special can be collected at the Weitmoosalm. There will also be some Goodies-for-Trix sessions at various obstacles at which everyone can win awesome prizes from our partners and sponsors.
Around the park-area the 2nd Blue Tomato Kids Snowboard Day will take place, where the younger audience will become the focus. Juniors will be taught the basics of snowboarding by professionals. Thereby, freestyle coachings, beginner courses and rental equipment will be provided totally for free! Further information can be obtained HERE
The Horsefeathers Superpark Opening Party at the Friends Bar in Schladming will start rocking at 9 pm: DJ tdk will heat the atmosphere with his diverse tunes, and we will turn the night into day!
