Kitzsteinhorn Mellow Park: ready for take-off! Daily Style Sessions • Freeride Monday • Volvo XC ICE CAMP • New easy cross line and half-pipe are set
With a varied range of freestyle and freeride features, the Kitzsteinhorn at Zell am See-Kaprun, Austria, attracts the riders this winter: freestylers can enjoy themselves in the DC Central Park and the Roxy Park as well as in the new half-pipe and the easy cross. At the daily Style Sessions at the DC Central Park, they get the opportunity to improve their own style while powder aficionados can visit the freeride workshops on Freeride Mondays. Finally, they all together may chill and relax at the Volvo XC ICE CAMP near Sonnenkarbahn.
The new half-pipe at the Sonnenkarbahn is 70 metres long and five metres high. Due to the weather conditions this winter, unfortunately the planned super-pipe could not be realized. The half-pipe offers snowboarders and freeskiers the occasion to do some nice hits – and all around the pipe, shredders find many more features to play around: the Roxy Park next to the pipe proffers obstacles for beginners and intermediates. One of the highlights of this park is the photo kicker with its 10-metre table. Its new rail line leads directly to the rail line of the DC Central Park: you can hit ten rails in one run consecutively!The DC Central Park offers many more features for advanced and pro riders: highlights are the pro kicker with an 18-metre table, a massive A-Box and an 18-metre fun box. Another new feature at the Kitzsteinhorn is the 250-metre Easy Cross Line with four banks and five waves. This set-up is perfect for kids and beginners as well as everybody who loves playing with the Gforces in the banks.
Style Sessions “Learn how to shred!“, is the motto of the free daily Style Sessions at the DC Central Park within the framework of the Volvo XC ICE CAMP. Local pros and coaches show riders how to shred the park in a better way. Whether it’s the first freestyle steps or tips how to improve your slides and spins – everyday from 1.30 pm, the coaches will assist all willing to learn.
Freeride Monday „Safety first!“ That’s the call every Monday at the Freeride Mondays which also take place in the context of the Volvo XC ICE CAMP. At these one-day freeride workshops, a certified ski and snowboard guide introduces small groups of maximum eight participants into the world of freeriding: they learn everything about safety equipment, avalanche awareness and the best riding technique for deep snow. The one-day camp is € 29 plus ski ticket and food.
