The Snowpark Gstaad is already known far beyond the borders of the Berner Oberland and a popular venue for freeskiers during winter time.
When your first steps in the morning are checking the mountain tops for white spots, you are definitely infected by winter fever. However, the colour that always puts a smile on the faces of freeskiers, especially delights a certain group of people: the Snowpark Gstaad shape crew at Hornberg. This winter, park designer David Mahnig and his crew will create a fabulous setup and celebrate the year 2016 with some awesome events.
The Snowpark Gstaad is already known far beyond the borders of the Berner Oberland and a popular venue for freeskiers during winter time. A short extract of the setup register will heat up the anticipation for future shred sessions: among other things, in the season of 2015/16 a wallride spine, a 8m down rail, a 7m rainbow tube, a 8m curved box and a 10m corner will ornament the snow at Hornberg.
The four park areas turn the Snowpark Gstaad into a place-to-be on the mountain for beginners and advanced riders. At the beginner area, everyone can take the chance to test small kickers and do his first slide attempts on the basic butter boxes. Those who already know the freestyle basics, will spend most of their time at the medium and jib area. Here, you can find kickers with tables from 5m to 9m and some tubes in different lengths. In the meantime, some more skills are needed in the advanced area where the grand kickers are lined up in a row. Everyone looking for some longer air time, can find it here at the 10 to 16m tables.
Events, events, events
The good mix out of jib and kicker lines makes the Snowpark Gstaad the perfect freestyle practice venue for ambitious young guns. Those who train hard, should get the chance to demonstrate their skills under contest conditions and compete with other riders. Thus, this season 2015/16 Gstaad will once again host the Mountain Rides Open on the 23rd of January. But that’s only the beginning of a series of events at Hornberg.
In February, all girls should have their twin-tips ready. On the 20th of February 2016 the Girls Shred Session is going to take place at Snowpark Gstaad for the second time. Shredding together is simply much more fun!
In March we will one more time party hard at the SnowTunes, with a chill area and a DJ who is taking care of the right party mood on the 20th of March. The new season 2015/16 is going to be loud!
