Falling for Feldberg – The Freestyle Hotspot and the Local Scene of the Schwarzwald Region


The question about what makes the badenova Snowpark Feldberg so special to snowboarders and freeskiers is easily answered – its big and loyal scene. But what is it exactly that creates such a buzz about the Feldberg and who are the people that have been living and following their passion here for years? Between “Kartoffelsalat” and gangster attitude, the life at the park and the love for the backcountry – This trip through the hotspots of the Feldberg area will give you insights into the various facets, characteristics and special features that make the highest mountain of the Schwarzwald area so unique. Our journey starts in the divine southern Schwarzwald region. Long and winding roads are leading through seemingly endless, dark woods. Walls of snow pile up on the edge of the roads. Occasionally you come across peaceful villages with plates on the doors of the houses warning of possible avalanches from the roofs. The Schwarzwald presents itself from its most winterly and fascinating side. The summit of Feldberg watches over this picturesque setting. If it wasn’t for the Bavarian Alps, it would be the highest mountain of Germany. When arriving at the Seebuck lift, one can already catch a first glimpse of our trip’s destination– The badenova Snowpark Feldberg, which nearly stretches up to the top station. If there was only one word to describe the Feldberg it would probably be ‘community’. When you’re taking your runs through the park and ask what makes the park that special, apart from the perfectly shaped setup, you’re bound to receive the same answer year after year; The scene, the people, the crews, the locals – no matter if there’s bluebird or grey skies. Who are these people that make the park what it is day in day out? It’s the ones who describe each other as members of the same family, those who would reply to each question for a “why” just with “’cause you came up here and you’re welcome”, as if it was some sort of collective mantra. Those who are already waiting restlessly for the park to open as early as October and won’t leave until the sun sets at the very last spring session. This scene exploration is centered around two crews who couldn’t be more different from each other, yet still, they share the very same passion. Follow the BOTI Crew taking smooth laps through the park and join the Kartoffelpack yelling the German words for “potato” and “salad” through the backcountry. Get to know the diverse aspects of the Feldberg and the collective basic idea, which holds everything together. Kartoffel? Salat! – and Action – Check out the edit to get to know Feldberg and its crews and join them for a typical day in the badenova Snowpark Feldberg. You will find the best pics from the park on Instagram. All the further information and news are available on the Parkwebsite and the Facebook Page. And for those of you who want to keep in touch via their smartphones, there’s also the free app for Android and iPhone
