BIG News for the Snowpark Schöneben
13.11.2019

The last season at the Snowpark Schöneben was just rad. It was rad because of a creative setup, a motivated shape crew and record-breaking events – summed up: everything a rider desires. But a really successful winter is no reason for the guys and girls at Schöneben to lean back and do exactly as they did the year before. Actually, there are some big novelties coming in season 2019/20!

The creative playground at Passo Resia will get a completely new concept. Over the years, the XL Snowpark grew to a remarkable size. Now the crew will focus even more on the quality of the Snowpark Schöneben: With a thoughtful line-management and a bunch of new ideas, the Italians want to ensure more fluent runs and fine sessions. At first glance, that means less takeoffs at the park. But if you take a closer look, you´ll see a couple of highlights coming at the Snowpark Schöneben!

More Airtime at the Snowpark Schöneben

There won´t be a lack of airtime at Schöneben, that´s for sure. In total, there will be even more kickers than last season! Only the levels of the jumps will be different: Beginner kickers will be reduced, but the number of medium jumps will rise and an advanced kicker will be the cherry on the top. Even though there will be less beginner jumps at Schöneben, rookies don´t have to worry. The easy line will still be an important part of the Snowpark but instead of a line of small kickers, it will be a mixture between kickers and snow waves. That way, beginners can show some creativity while doing their first steps in freestyle.

The highlight is brought to you by FORST

Those, who prefer jibs over kickers won´t be disappointed either. Because this year´s highlight of the park will be without any doubt the nine-meter-long FORST rail. That is a pretty fine triple kink mailbox designed like a beer bottle of the South Tyrolian brewery FORST, which is brought to all shredders by the brewery itself. The flashy rail is a symbol for the cooperation between two South Tyrolian evergreens: Schöneben and Forst. And the triple kink mailbox is pretty rad to shred as well.
