Horsefeathers Superpark Planai

Before you start riding this snowpark it’s very important to warm up your muscles. Further you should get a detailed overview of the park, the obstacles and the inruns. The best strategy is to watch the locals for a while before you hit the park or the first big kicker that comes your way! Many accidents happen because of too much or too little speed on the inrun. Speed-check is the solution! Also the best riders fall sometimes. Protection? Not bad idea! In the Horsefeathers Superpark  Planai the 10 FIS-Rules  are in force and you also have to abide the QParks-Rules! And yes, we are talking about Horsefeathers Superpark Planai

The Planai Hochwurzen lifts have been running a Snow Park project with the Atomic Superpark (now Horsefeathers Superpark) on the Dachstein glacier for years now. Last season they extended their existing freestyle offer with the Horsefeathers Superpark Planai. Both parks are complimenting each other seasonally. And the experienced team from Qparks (Quality Snow Parks), is taking care for the top conditions in the park every day, each season, all year long.

Last week we decided to go to Horsefeathers Superpark Planai and check how is there. Nejc Ferjan and Domen Bizjak were also curios about the set-up, se they joined us for a real spring shred.

Horsefeathers Superpark Planai is offering three different levels of kickers. First, begginer kickers (three in line) are perfect for all who wants to start with jumping in the park, then on the right side of the park you can find “middle weight” kickers having from 5 m to 7 m flat (again three in a line). Next to it are their big brothers. From 13 m to 20 m flat, three in a line (kicker, kicker and a big roler). What about rails and boxes? So many possibilites that is hard to decied where to go. Again on the left side you can find small, tiny boxes for all the youngsters. Right from it, there are three lines of different obstacles. All shapes possible. Rainbow, up/down box, straight box, kinked box, and so on and on. And they were saving with rails also. From straight rail to pole jam. And three picnik tables. Sounds nice? It is…

Enough about the facts. For now you will need to be satisfied only with pics. But don’t forget to come back, because a short movie is also coming by the end of this week with all the stuff I can’t explain here…so stay tuned!!!
