On Friday was the start signal given by the SANE Crew where the riders could make their first best tricks to get some Cash4Tricks at the Jib’n Skate Playground. After the action on the mountain we continued in the valley directly with the Streetparty and celebrated the beginning of a great winter season at the Club Circle. In Feichten the mainroad was closed to offer the perfect “After-Ride” evening with street food, live music and an even bigger ramp this year. Sam Baumgartner (AUT) won “Best Trick” Award and Siver Voll (NOR) was able to take home two prizes at once – the “Best Trick” and “Best Overall” Award. At the second day Heavy Metal Rail Jam took place at the Jib’n Skate Playground, where the riders showed their best tricks and craziness at the high jump contest. Who could impress the judges and the crowd the most during the whole weekend got the possibility to win different Standout Awards. “Standout Amateur” went to Angeolo Gastl (ITA), “Standout Girl” to Olympic participant Silvia Mittermüller (GER), “Best Trick” to Luis Eckert (GER) and a lot more. After all the second part of the KTO Streetparty and the Club Circle, this time at the Zapa Bar, were given. On Saturday evening it was the snowboarders turn to perform their best tricks and show that it is possible to ride the wooden rail at the Invitational Night Rail Jam. In the end the riders decided themselves who would get the trophies and the prize money. Heat 1 “Beat Overall” went to Christian Kirsch (AUT), “Best Trick” to Zoltán Strcula (CZE) and in the second heat “Best Overall” got Kasper de Zoete (NL). The third and therefore the last day started relaxed with a freshly shaped park. It was the girls’ turn to invite the Cash4Tricks Session at the Jib’n Skate playground too and let the weekend end with awesome tricks perfectly. The best prepared autumn setup, new contest format, sessions, legendary club nights and the very latest test material are waiting for all the ski and snowboarder. The newly built “Naturerun” from last year is this time once again extended and with new rails. Whether pro or beginner, the “Naturerun 2.0” offers something for every level to show their skills. At the three-day-long Testival the riders have the opportunity to try out the latest material from over 35 brands for free. In addition to the Snowpark and the Testival, everyone had the chance to visit the Side Events like the Mini Ramp, Workshops or to improve their balance the Balance Board Park.
