The 13th annual Pleasure Jam went down last weekend and the young guns took the silverware. Keita Inamura from Japan and Katie Ormerod from Great Britain were the proud 18 year old victors.
56 international snowboard pros, the Superpark Planai boasting a pro-line in November, a super ambitious crew, a swept-away audience and two 18 year old champions – these were the ingredients of the staggering 13th edition of the Pleasure Jam.
For the first time, the offbeat to the World Snowboard Tour and the QParks Snowboard Tour was relocated from the Superpark Dachstein to the Superpark Planai in the snow-secure Schladming-Dachstein region.
