Groms and parents get hyped: the second edition of the Family Freestyle Weekend is about to go down in the Snowpark Alpendorf in Snow Space Salzburg (Sankt Johann, Pongau). Like last year's event, the FFW crew will be making sure there's plenty of great action and good times to be had for both kids and parents alike: next to brand new test material for youngsters & grown ups, there are riding technique courses for kids with pro snowboarders in the Snowpark, a Trial Bike Show with Trial-Star Thomas Klausner, the Barilla Pasta Party, Kids Bingo with great goodies and more.
On Saturday, March 10th and Sunday March 11th the Snowpark Alpendorf will be all about freestyle. This place is perfectly set up for freestyle newbies and advanced riders alike, and ideal to easily learn new tricks.
The weekend will kick off on Saturday at 09:30am at the Strassalm, at the bottom of the Snowpark Alpendorf, with test booths from Burton, YES. and Jones Snowboards as well as Draussen Kids Outerwear. This is also the home base for all on-mountain activities: the Snowboard Coaches of the Shred School and the Freeski Coaches will be waiting here, deinGorilla.at – the education and health program for more uga uga in life – offer tea and information on healthy foods, and snowboard beginners can get a first taste of sideway sliding in trial courses with the local snowboard school. Not to forget the Kidsshoot where a professional photographer will take action pictures in magazine quality of you. All of these activities are free for all visitors, you only need a lift ticket for the day in the snowpark.
Additional highlights on Saturday afternoon include: a show by Trial Bike Star Thomas Klausner at 3:30pm who will be showing off his stunts at the bottom station of the Alpendorf Gondola, followed by the Barilla Pasta Party with Kids Bingo in the Hotel Alpina (at the bottom station as well) at 4pm.
If we're lucky and blessed with some fresh snow, the new Pow Surfers by Konvoi are offered for testing on Sunday. Of course all freestyle coaches are looking forward to teach some more new tricks on Sunday as well and also the snowboard test material is offered for free again on the second event day.
It's also worth noting that Snow Space Salzburg in St. Johann-Alpendorf is not only offering incredible prices for kids, youth and family tickets for the Family Freestyle event, but all other weekends too: day tickets for kids (born 2002-2011) are available for only €17, youth (born 1999-2001) for € 27 and family day tickets for €112 (2 adults, 1 kid).
