O’Neill Pleasure Jam 2013 – Taking Freestyle up to Eleven!
TTR 4 Star Event, 1st QParks Snowboard Tour Stop
8th – 10th November 2013, Schladming/Dachstein
The Dachstein Glacier calls out for the 11th edition of the O’Neill Pleasure Jam 2013 from the 8th to the 10th of November. There’s a jam-packed schedule planned with riders descending from across the globe for a competition to boot as well as some party. As always, there’s 20,000 USD up for grabs at the first 4Star World Snowboard Tour slopestyle competition of the season and the first stop of the QParks Snowboard Tour for riders to battle it out for.
Get your calendars scheduled for the first highlight event of the season. Riders can not only look forward to a nice amount of prize money and TTR points but also to a world class slopestyle setup in front of the scenery of Europe’s finest glacier. The Superpark Dachstein will be ready for sure, but what about the riders? Last year’s winners Eric Beauchemin (USA) and Aimee Fuller (GBR) already confirmed their arrival. Will they be able to defend their titles? Also Austrians snowboarding elite is on start, so look forward to watch Werni Stock, Matthias Weissenbacher, Clemens Schattschneider and Anna Gasser in Action!

NIGHT SHIFTS – NO TIME TO SLEEP
It wouldn’t be the O’Neill Pleasure Jam without good nighttime knees up and there is a full schedule
of activities from Thursday to Sunday in Schladming Downtown. Blue Tomato have stepped up to be
the hosts of the Blue Tomato Welcome Party on the Thursday night at their HQ in Schladming.
We’re returning to the infamous Cult Club in Schladming for our very own QParks Jammer Time party on Friday night. Not only will we have a roster of DJ’s to make Berlin blush, but we’ll be premiering the new Nitro Snowboards movie ‘Down to Earth’ starring our very own Marc Swoboda and Dominik Wagner and our German cousins Benny Urban and Basti Rittig.
If the day’s activities on Saturday haven’t got you falling asleep by dinner then join us for the official O’Neill Pleasure Jam – We like to party #9 at the Cult Club. Flo Galler, Davo Struber and Friends will be giving us the sneak peak at their blv/nthing project ‘Farewell Followers’ which will take some seeing to believing. We’ll be following that up with another premiere from the Gremlinz crew and their project ‘busit’. As soon as the lights come on at the end of the premieres, we’ll be turning them back off for DJ Monaco Bass and 666OPS to take to the decks for some classic Hip Hop beats. Don’t forget your best kicks.
As always our friends at the Friend Bar will be spinning the vinyl on the Friday and Saturday night.
