Full House at the Shred Poker Diedamskopf
10.03.2020

What happens when the local shred aces come together for a bluebird session? Right on, it’s going to be massive. On Sunday (March 8) the Shred Poker Diedamskopf went down and it was truly a nice day. Awesome weather, a giant special obstacle, highly motivated snowboarders and freeskiers as well as a decent BBQ guaranteed a rad atmosphere at Diedamspark.

But first things, first. Park Designer Nicolas Bucher and his hard-working crew were digging out the park way after dusk. Because before the weather showed bluebird skies, it was time for a massive dump of snow during the days prior the shred event. The result of the shapers was more than impressive, so the riders marveled at the massive multi feature in the morning. Two High Flat Rails on the sides, a Flat Tank in the centre as well as a Down Rail and a Down Box set the stage for a banger session. The big take-offs also made sure that solid airtime was guaranteed and big spins as well as flips could be sent. All in all, the riders witnessed a giant freestyle playground where everyone had the chance to try new tricks and show his/her skills.

Unbelievable Skills

After the short registration, warm-up runs and final touches on the special obstacle by the motivated shape crew, it was time for the show. Everyone was ready for nearly two hours full of shred action. Steezy tricks were rewarded with one or even a couple of poker chips. Freeskiers and snowboarders showed cool tricks from their skill set. And when a trick didn’t really work out, the shred heads unstrapped and went up to the inrun again. So, the hike session left time for progression and fine tuning. If riders were out of breath, the chill area was the ideal place to relax and with nice beats in the background, one could lean back and watch the others literally going all in. This way, not only the photographer and filmer witnessed insanity: switch backflip or a frontflip out of the High Rail and many more creative and ambitious tricks were stomped at Diedamspark. And just like that, judge Luki Draxl ran out of poker chips after a good while.

€500 Prize Money and many many goodies!

After that, it was time to figure out who the chip leaders were. On the International Women’s Day, snowboarder Anna Beck – the day’s queen of hearts so-to-speak - collected the most chips of all shred ladies on-site and was happy to receive €50. Also, the winners of the overall ranking, put in everything they got. In the end, three shred aces were happy about good pot money. Freeskier Manu Pleifer was the Shred Poker Star of the day and was rewarded with 200 bucks! It was well deserved after endless runs with incredible stomps and 32 collected poker chips. Jib King Shun Yoshida came second and swapped his 26 poker chips for €150. This guy was unstoppable on his snowboard and impressed the judges, spectators and other riders with his top-notch performance. Gottfried “Goffi” Gram obviously enjoyed his runs on the the twintips and took home the third place with 25 chips (worth €100) in total. He was tireless as well and delivered big time with his super clean tricks.    

But not just the lucky guys on the podium cleared prizes. Also, the other participants had the chance to grab fine goodies from POW Gloves, TSG, Amplifi, QParks and the Bergbahnen Diedamskopf depending on the chip count.

Free drinks and snacks

After the intense hike and poker session at Diedamspark, it was about time to enjoy some snacks and chilled drinks. The BBQ started and some delicious grilled goods were served. Now, the shredders had the chance to lean back and relax at the Chill Area. The day ended in style with sunshine, the scenic backdrop at Diedamspark and the nice setup in limelight.

We’re pumped after this day, stoked to see a d(i)edicated shape crew who created this beautiful piece of a multi-feature from scratch and thankful for over 40 riders who showed and contributed to a simply perfect day at Diedamspark.

For the Parkrats of Schladming Christmas Eve 2020 was a very special one as there was an exciting present hidden under the Christmas Tree. The Superpark Planai & the Funslope opened their doors on the 24th of December, just in time for some Christmas and NYE holiday shreds. Freeskiers and Snowboarders could make the best out of 2020 and enjoy the last two weeks of this very interesting year lapping the Park. 2021 is packed with hope and the crew around the Superpark Planai want to welcome you with a very creative and fun Park-setup!

There’s a XL snowpark right in the wintersport heart of Austria that’s called Kitzbühel. And who thought that Kitzbühel is only about alpine skiing is proven wrong. After all, five areas filled with kickers, jibs and multi features will still everyone’s hunger for freestyle. On top, two well-known events will be the cherry on this seasons cake.

Always an early bird and ready for the next best session! The Snowpark Kreischberg leaves an impression on the parkrat folks with its early opening date. The Murauer Playground is, as per usual, one of the first non-glacier-parks that can build up a park. This is year it can also be a really exciting Christmas present! The lifts will open and so will the Snowpark Kreischberg on the 24th of December 2020!

2020 is coming to an end. And even though no one will miss this year, the end of it brings something amazing: snow! The mountains of Mayrhofen in the Zillertal have been covered in white gold over and over again in the last few weeks and left us dreaming of an early start of the season in the Penken Park.

Even the longest summer break of all times eventually comes to an end, that’s why we want to give you an update on what’s cooking in our 40 QParks all over the Alps.

Even though Covid-19 makes things more difficult and uncertain regarding the coming winter season, one thing should give hope to all shredqueens who can’t wait for the season to start: The Girls Shred Sessions will be back – with smaller groups, an exclusive coaching atmosphere and good vibes only.

Since years, this park has been one of the highlights in the Bernese Alps, not only because of the impressive mountain-giants surrounding it: Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The SKYLINE SNOWPARK will once again the cherry on top of this breathtaking scenery and is prepared with a massive setup and many new obstacles to surprise.
