The Crystal Ground itself is going to glisten in its renewed splendour. The new setup includes four lines now: An “easy line” for kids and beginners, the “public line”, which provides interesting and spectacular obstacles for all ages, as well as the “advanced public line” for the sophisticated jibbers. A separate “kicker line” for friends of the airtime tops off the setup for the upcoming season. So you may be looking forward to massive slopestyle action at the Kleinwalsertal again.

Furthermore, a second snow-lance has been bought with the help of the local supporters and sponsors. This makes Crystal Ground even more independent from the weather conditions. May the season never end!
The sun terrace, which already proved its worth last winter, has been transformed into a veritable chillout lounge without further ado. You can be sure that there will be one or another BBQ-session taking place right here.
Another happy news is the fact, that the Iron Night 2008 as an important element of the “Suzuki Wir Schanzen Tournee” has become an official part of the “Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour”. A special Iron Night setup, a Quiksession-concert directly at the snowpark as well as the legendary FUNK-Aftershowparty guarantee a superlative contest again.

Apart from the Iron Night, a bunch of other interesting and spectacular events will take place at the Crystal Ground. Please find the dates of the already confirmed events in the following:
Style Camp 2008 18.01. – 20.01.2008
Iron Night 2008 16.02.2008

Due to the heavy snowfall around mid-november, the snowpark already opened on Friday, the 16th of November and on the following weekend for the first time of the season.
The latest news on the snow-situation and the opening times of the snowpark, the service station as well as of the shop can easily be found on www.crystalground.com. The webpage appears in a totally new shape and design. After the relaunch in September the website now provides several additional features like a 3-D ride through this year’s setup as well as the new online shop.
