January 6 2012 will see Mayrhofen’s Vans Penken Park once again open its doors to some of Europe’s most promising rookies, allowing them to pit their skills against each other and battle it out for the Hotzone.TV Groms Open title. 18 or under and good at shredding? Get your olds to get you involved…
You’re eighteen or younger and eager to compete with kids at the same age? Or you want to join your first freestyle snowboard competition? Maybe you want to improve one of your last years results? Or you simply want to enjoy an easy going competition with no pressure at all? Then take your chance and join the 5th edition of the HOTZONE.TV Groms Open at the Vans Penken Park in Mayrhofen on the 6th of January 2012.
Head shaper Sven Toller from Switzerland and his crew will again created the perfectly shaped setup which will be of medium size and therefore provide ideal conditions to carry out the slopestyle competition.The girls and boys will be judged by experienced judges from TTR and out of the HOTZONE Pro Rider Pool in the different categories under 16, from 16-18 and girls only. Presumably the setup of the slopestyle will be built up of two rails/boxes and two jumps.
Besides an obligatory goodie bag you’re able to win 1000€ prize money in total, non-cash prizes sponsored by HOTZONE.TV, Vans and the Mayrhofener Bergbahnen and a Wild Card for the Protest World Rookie Finals in Ischgl, Austria (4Star TTR).
