This year the Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam owns the pole-position among freestyle events and is ready and waiting for the starting signal. Due to the optimal snow conditions, the Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam Set-Up can already be shred and the foundation for another first rate TTR 4 Star Competition is laid.
Besides locals such as Stefan Gimpl, Christian Kröll, Flo Mausser, Herby Thaler and Julia Baumgartner, infamous riders of the international snowboard scene like Elias Elhardt, Marko Grilc, Ville Uotila as well as Cheryl Maas, Sarka Pancochova, the Finnish superstar Eero Ettala, the Swiss Markus Keller and Stefan Maurer as well as Conny Bleicher raise the riding level of the event to a peak. Quasi-Local Marko Grilc is crazy about his confirmed starting position and comments: “Dachstein is like my home mountain and I wouldn’t miss an event going down there. Insane park and Pleasure Jam, all my friends are there to ride with.” For Conny Bleicher and Julia Baumgartner the event is the perfect scene come-together. The this year’s lucky winners won’t only ride for joy and reputation, but also for a considerable prize money of 15.000 USD as well as a specialaward for the best-trick performance on the finale day and a three week’s all-inclusive surf trip to the legendary Balicamp.
Again in this year, parkdesigner Bernd Mandlberger and his team are responsible for the Set-Up and let the Atomic Superpark Dachstein aglow in amazing shine. The contest line consists of a Kinked-Butterbox, two big Kickers with each 12m and 18m Table, a Snow-Funbox with 13m and finally a wall ride. In addition, there are two small kickers with 10m and 13m tables.
Get ready to party! On Friday, the 13th, there won’t be time for superstition, as everybody is invited to the Blue Tomato Opening-Party in the legendary Hohenhaus Tenne. Under the motto “Peace and Love”, the DJs b.visible and Stylestab will heat the atmosphere with their tunes. As a special gadget, those who come dressed as Hippies get Freedrink-vouchers. A further highlight is the video-premiere of Loveolution, the brand-new flick by the Love-Team! There’s no time for taking a break: On Saturday evening you can’t go past the “Pickings Fam Party” – the DJs Drunken Masters and the live acts DIE VAMUMMTN and MOZ will rock the Hofbauer Stollen.
No need to say: Boredom is nothing for this week-end!
