Even if spring keeps knocking on our doors, there’s no way we’ll put our twin tips to rest yet! Instead, we started a neat spring session with a bunch of shredheads, making sure that our media crew was covered with tons of sweet footage. The impressive result can be marveled at in the video edit and the bursting gallery!
Majestically covered with a touch of fresh snow, the MINI Snowpark Feldberg sparkled in the glow of the morning sun on this fine day in March. Idyllic in a way – if there hadn’t been park designer Kristof Heidmann & Co, who only seem to be shaping the park everyday anew out of one objective, and one objective only – to engage in a massive shred session and to destroy the park by every trick in the book! Well, that’s an intention we really dig, so we simply couldn’t wait to give the shape crew a hand on this smoking bluebird day. Sport Bohny Team Rider Marco Volz was also on the same page, so he grabbed Dimas Lauinger, Benedikt Baur, Gabriel Spalek, Max Gschwindt and their boards and headed straight for the best park in the Schwarzwald. For hours, both the park and our media crew were bombarded with a firework of sick jibs and spectacular spins. Even after their hundredth run, none of the riders showed the least sign of exhaustion – must be due to the fresh Schwarzwald air or something! What did show, however, were brightly grinning shredheads who simply couldn’t wait to hit the next run.
Local Marco Volz is especially stoked about the versatile setup that Kristof and his guys have conjured up into the slopes of the Feldberg – so we’ve grabbed him for a little interview at the end of the session:
Hi Marco! You’re up at the MINI Snowpark Feldberg on almost any weekend – how do you like this year’s setup? What do you think about the new MINI obstacles and the Bohny Wallride?
Yeah, I try to spend as much time as possible in the park, as long as my studies still allow me to do so. This year’s setup is just awesome and the jib line can compete with any other line in the Alps! Like every year, Kristof and his guys are doing an outstanding job, always giving it 100%. Many of the new MINI obstacles as well as the Bohny Wallride have been customized by Schneestern especially for the MINI Snowpark Feldberg – if that’s not more than enough reasons to shred as often as possible at the MINI Snowpark Feldberg!
What’s so special about the MINI Snowpark?
Even though you don’t see a lot of the guys during the (way too long!) summer time, at the season opening, it always feels like you’ve just spent the last Sunday shredding together. But to get away from all this emotional touchy-feely talk, the park is sick and has something in store for everyone! Additionally, the park has had the best kickers I’ve ever jumped in the Schwarzwald!
Together with the shape crew, you’ve made quite a few edits in this season – can we soon expect a spring edit?
We’ve been quite productive during the season and we’re definitely working on a spring edit! Here you get a little overview of the park in moving pictures – as well as the promised and upcoming spring edit!
Well, do you feel the urge to pack your gear and head straight for the MINI Snowpark Feldberg? No?! Then maybe you should have a look at the impressive gallery, into which we’ve put the best snowboard shots of the day! Whoever’s still not motivated then should definitely watch the spectacular snowboard edit – and you’ll never wanna go home again!
