Given 28 hours with 2 of your friends in one of Europe’s top resorts, could you create a 2-minute short film that showcases amazing riding, arty shots and an interesting storyline? That’s the challenge 15 teams will face as they take to the slopes of Mayrhofen next March for the fifth edition of Europe’s premier riding and filming contest, the Oakley Jib-Vid.
For the second year, the Oakley Jib-Vid will be held in the Austrian resort of Mayrhofen; renowned for its excellent riding area and the awesome Vans Penken Park. After a great first year in its new home, the event is set to be bigger and better for 2009, with an increased prize purse now up to 10,000 Euros and an even better Vans Penken Park.
The Oakley Jib-Vid is capped off with the legendary projection party at the Sports Lounge on Friday night, where tensions are high as the teams’ films are presented to a packed house and the 2009 Oakley Jib-Vid champions are announced.
Complementing the main Jib-Vid competition the flip and grip best trick session returns with on the spot cash giveaways along with the infamous Jib-Vid raffle where anyone can get their hands on a pair of skis, a snowboard or some awesome Oakley kit. Finally the return of the Scotland Yard party on Thursday night will have everyone up on their feet, keep your eyes peeled for more information on this.
With all this and more, Mayrhofen is the place to be from 25-27th March.
