quattro Snow Park Obergurgl – diamonds are a rider’s best friends

Winter is drawing close and the first snow has a lock on Tyrol’s peaks. While others are still mourning after summer, real freestylers are already shuffling their feet with a longing look in their eyes. For those who are dying to set foot on the mountains again, we have some good news: The ski resort Obergurgl-Hochgurgl has already opened its doors to dedicated riders on 13. November 2014. And there’s more: The quattro Snow Park Obergurgl has been brightly polished and will be ready to present you some new features and events shortly.

While other ski lifts are standing still, the season at the snow-spoilt winter sports resort Obergurgl-Hochgurgl has already started. Located in the Ötztal valley at the main Alpine ridge, it is surrounded by a breath-taking mountain panorama. From November to May, the Diamond of the Alps offers a lot of fresh powder, sunny weather and a wide-ranging offer: Freeride, freestyle, 110 kilometres of broad slopes where snow is guaranteed, and 24 ski lifts taking care of a swift transportation – that doesn’t leave much to be desired. But the best thing is yet to come: The quattro Snow Park Obergurgl starts into a new season 2014/15 after last year’s successful premiere.

Located next to the ski lift „Bruggenbodenlift“ at 2120m above sea level, the park offers a varied range of opportunities. Challenging lines lead through a forested area, offering a lot of space for creative park design. A total of 17 obstacles will be available at the quattro Snow Park Obergurgl. Let’s start in the Beginner Area for a short warm-up: a 6m rainbow butter-box, two 6m up/down butter-boxes and a 4m dance floor butter-box. You can try your first jumps on two 3m kickers and one 4m jump. If you want to get started immediately, the Medium Area will be the right choice. Several features are waiting to get extensively tested by motivated snowboarders: A lollipop jib, a 4m flat box, a 4m bench jib and, last but not least, a 4m tank jib. Fancy some airtime? No problem, you can enhance your skills on two kickers with 6-7m tables. You can look up the complete setup anytime at the park website.
