The Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn became the centre of spectacular tricks and sick action again: Within the scope of a dazzling shooting the Nitro Road Warriors examined the park thoroughly and tested the park by hook or by crook. The pro team around Basti Rittig and Michael Macho pushed it to a maximum with a stunningly wide range of tricks and proved that the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn offers perfectly shaped obstacles in spite of the proliferating spring!

Things got wild again in the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn and the result is a clip that is definitely worth watching: The Nitro Road Warriors around Basti Rittig and Michael Macho showed not only impressive tricks, but were convincing, moreover, in their contagious enthusiasm for the team shred session. In order to maximize the effort and output the riders were taken up on the mountain before dawn for the ultimate sunrise shooting. This clearly formed a highlight that neither the Nitro Road Warriors, nor the filmers will forget too soon. As a consequence, the motivation was climaxing just before the kick-off of the session – and the riders pushed each other to show top-class performances. Basti Rittig, Nitro team rider, tells us, “We had a blast up on the mountain! The park was in a perfect condition and it was a highlight to cruise through the entire park and really go to the maximum on the setup. Plus, it´s just great to be riding with the entire team. It´s very motivating and you can watch the others, get tips and also help others – thus you can learn a lot in such sessions. For me personally, the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn ist one of the best parks of the Alpine region. It was perfectly shaped at the shooting – there was nothing left to be desired! I really had a great time shredding with the guys on these two shooting days!”

Sebastian Funk was filming on the two days of the shooting and he, as well, was truly won over by the setup and the condition of the snowpark: “When other parks become soft and slushy you can still count on perfect conditions in the Snowpark Kitzsteinhorn! Since the park is located so high up on the mountain, it stays the way it is way longer than other park which is great for shootings! Even though I`ve seen quite a bit as a filmer, I always find the park very impressive when I come here. This time, the sunrise shooting was the special highlight! The snowpark offers a massive playground in a relatively compact area – it offers countless riding opportunities and is especially exciting for me as a filmer ! Now, the shooting day with the Nitro road warriors was epic and they showed numerous sick tricks and massive airtime! In fact, I believe that, when working together, the most important thing is that everyone is having a good time and is stoked for the joint shooting! It´s all about the right ambiance!”

    Awesome place to go in the Spring, it’s a shame Ryanair has lost the slots from Salzburg. We to go out at 06.30 and come back at 10.30pm the same day, or have a short weekend trip. Cheap flights are slowly dieing out
