Announcement, announcement! Our friends from QParks are busy throwing events left and right. This one goes down in Western Austria and is a must go if you are anywhere close. Apologies for some strange wording – but that’s how Qparks roll…
On March 26th 2011 snowboarders meet in the Snowpark Fiss Ladis for the second time to fight for important QParks Tour points. The slopestyle contest in the Tyrol Oberland is the highlight for all freestyle enthusiasts who will battle for a prizemoney and goodies worth 4000 Euros at the 7th QParks Tour stop. You definitely shouldn’t miss this freestyle spectacle – DJ Masstricks will heat up the spectators and riders with his awesome beats!
Spring awakening in the Snowpark Fiss Ladis: all riders have the chance to win a prizemoney and goodies of the sponsors Brunotti, Sport Krismer Café, Sport Schmid Fiss and Intersport Pregenzer worth 4000,- Euros. Furthermore the shredders can collect important QParks Tour points at the Oberland Open 2011 to qualify for the finals at the Horsefeathears Superpark Dachstein at the end of the season.
All riders can register for the slopestyle contest online or at the chill area of the Snowpark Fiss Ladis on March 26th 2011 until 10:45am! During the training all snowboarders can practice their tricks on the contest setup until the riders meeting starts. Afterwards the downdays and Airpatrol judges team will tell important points about the contest procedure and the basis of judging the tricks. DJ Masstricks and speaker Chris Cab will heat up the audience before the the qualification of the Oberland Open 2011 will start.
The valuation by the judges is made in two categories:
1. Rating: Boys & Girls „Rookies“ (16 years and younger)
2. Rating: Boys & Girls (from 16 years up)
The format of the Oberland Open 2011 is a slopestyle contest where you have to shred rails, boxes and kickers. Due to the rambling territory in the Snowpark Fiss Ladis as well as the sophisticated setup the snowboarders can make very creative runs. Therefore each rider can choose his or her perfect line and make the Oberland Open 2011 become a slopestyle contest deluxe!
But also the spectators and freestyle enthusiasts will be pleased: in the chill area you can watch the pros shredding the contest and later try the tricks of their favorite riders in the public park! The Snowpark Fiss Ladis offers different obstacles for all levels of riding, which you can study at the 3D park map, pictures and videos under www.snowpark-fiss-ladis.at as well as on the Facebook Fanpage.
Everybody can win
No matter whether you’re on the rider’s or the spectator’s side, anyone can win at the QParks Tour! All riders who register online at www.qparks.com do have the chance to collect “votes” on their profiles. The rider with the most votes in the end of the tour wins a 2 weeks Balicamp trip. But also the “voters” won’t come away empty handed: there’s another 2 weeks stay in the Balicamp including flight, accommodation and surf guiding waiting for one of you guys voting on the riders, along with heaps of goodies at each tourstop!
