Aloha! Hawaii is the main theme for the seventh series of the Snowpark Tour. But instead of some hula hula dance on the beach the participants will have to show their skills on a board in the best snow parks in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. At ten tour stops the riders can qualify for the big finals at the Kitzsteinhorn in Zell am See-Kaprun (AUT) on March 15 and 16. But the next big thing is Lech on January 26 and 27!
Since 2004 Lech is a guaranteed stop for the Snowpark Tour (Picture: Lorenz Holder).
At the Schlegelkopflift in Lech/ Arlberg a 3 kicker line with tables between 10 and 15 meters is waiting for the rookies, along with a wallride, a double kinked box, a C box, a kinked, straight and rainbow rail. Not bad, eh? As the event is already in a little bit more than a week the online sign up is not possible anymore but you can sign up on location, on Saturday, January 26, at 10.30 a.m. Check www.snowparktour.com for futher information!
The sign up is for free and the jam session format takes the pressure from the young riders: Within a certain amount of time everybody can do as many runs as he/ she wants and Mellow Constructions is offering the perfect snow parks for the contests – fun and safety are what count the most. International Rossignol, Quiksilver and Roxy pro riders are doing the judging and besides set ups from those companies, the winner in Lech will also take home a wild card for one of the most important Austrian contests, the Ästhetiker Jam Wängl Tängl. Additionally the best four riders (plus the best two female riders) of every single tour stop will qualify for the finals at the Kitzsteinhorn in March where the Snowpark Lech has got a title to defend as it won the final team battle last year!More information and sign up on www.snowparktour.com
