On a major event like the Horsefeahters Pleasure Jam, which is a TTR 4 Star contest, for the first time this year, you can expect some of the biggest names in snowboarding among the competitors: Austria’s most talented riders like Gigi Rüf, Wolle Nyvelt, Stefan Gimpl, Chris Kröll or Sani Alibabic and many more will compete against international superstars like Eero Ettala ( Fin), Hampus Mosesson (Swe) or Torstein Horgmo (Nor).
Additionally the best 15 starters of the qualification get the chance to fight for the 20.000 USD of prize money against the invited pros. Those who want to participate on this mega event can get extra packages (accommodation, liftticket, etc) for the duration of the event. You should get one of those as long as they’re available.
From the 7th to 9th November 2008, the Horsefeathers Pleasure Jam is going for his 6th sequel. As a TTR 4 Star Event for the first time this year, the contest lures the elite of international snowboardpros to the Atomic Superpark, located on the Dachstein-glacier, region Schladming-Dachstein in Ski amadé.
