You might not believe but we received a complaint that we post too much information on contests like the Olympics, the Arctic Challenge and the X Games and not enough about the simple joys of non-competitive shredding. Luckily, the QParks people sent us two videos from the superb Snowpark Lenzerheide (CH).
On a Friday in February the QParks media crew pilgrimaged to the Snowpark Lenzerheide to get some shots in a unique atmosphere. Sebastian Funk, a big video camera in his backbag, and Sebi Madlener with his photo camera came to capture the tricks of the snowboarders Kurt Auer, Joris Doorn, and Raphi Hagen. “It was pretty cold for body and technique. Although it had minus 20 degrees we had a lot of fun. We started the shooting at 7.30 pm and finished at 10.30 pm,” remembers Sebi.
After work was done the crew stayed in Lenzerheide to enjoy the March Madness ceremonies and to continue the park shooting on Sunday. Kurt Auer, snowboarder and also headshaper in the Sajas Diedamspark, was delighted about the happenings in the park and the whole weekend: “The floodlight shooting and also the party were really cool. The park is awesome! Especially the kickers are perfect to do some Corks and Rodeos. On Friday it snowed a little, this made the atmosphere even more unique and fairy tale like.”
Floodlight shooting? There ya go!
