The contest series at the Vans Penken Park enters the next round – on March 12th, 2016 the freeski scene should get prepared for the premiere of the PENKEN BATTLE! As the participants of the Mayrhofen Freeski Open have already ripped the park with plenty of smooth runs and sick tricks, the time has come to welcome the QParks Freeski Tour at Penken.
On March 12th, ladies, men and groms will step up to an outstanding battle at the Vans Penken Park. At the 7th stop of the QParks Freeski Tour 2015/16, a cash prize of € 1,300 and loads of goodies by Anon, Neff, Amplifi and QParks are waiting for the contesters. Since there’s no entry fee, the tour is an absolute must-shred for all riders who want to raise attention and set their mark within the European freeski scene.

It’s Raining Points!
Apart from a prospectively amazing slopestyle setup, the tempting cash prize and goodies, it’s all about gathering points at the Penken Battle. Alongside the chance to collect points for the QParks Tour… the Freeski Austria Ranking as well as the ranking of the Tyrolean Ski Association are also part of the game.
