Already for the 5th sequel the Swatch Snowpark Sölden will be rocked during the legendary Freestyle Feast Reloaded and comes into the firing line of all freeskier and snowboarders. To avoid being on the scrap heap the event ups the ante this season: Besides the usual lifestyle-package a snowboard and freeski contest in slopestyle format takes place in the categories Men, Ladies and Rookies for the first time!
One week before spring break there is no reason to stow away skis and snowboards, because you are called to the Freestyle Feast Reloaded on the 13th of March 2010 at the Swatch Snowpark Sölden – spring has definitely to wait! On that weekend the beautiful Ötz valley and its surroundings will be traded as an insider-tip of the Austrian ski and snowboard scene. Park designer Rudi Wyhlidal and his crew of highly motivated shapers are already looking forward to the new event and give the park the perfect shape. But the Freestyle Feast Reloaded 2010 also has some improvements. The “Lifestyle Spectacle” for example has been converted into a snowboard and freeski contest in slopestyle format. The categories Men, Ladies and Rookies appeals to each winter sports enthusiast, regardless of age or if they are freeskier or snowboarder.
The schedule starts early in the morning with the registration of all competitors. The warm up and training session follows, where you can fight off the remaining feeling of tiredness with spectacular tricks and jumps. At 10:30 a.m. the fight begins, when the riders first compete in the qualification rounds and afterwards in the much anticipated finals. The happy winners will be awarded at the prize giving around 4:00 p.m. where a prize money of EUR 1000.- is paid out. The best freeskier and also the best snowboarder of the day of the category Men will be invited to a QParks Special Obstacle Shooting in the Swatch Snowpark Sölden in calendar week 11/12.
Another specialty for all those interested freestylers is the Swatch Shoot-your-Ride Goodies Session at the beginner line, where everybody, regardless if rookie or pro, has the opportunity to present his special jump and win non-cash prizes sponsored by the partners.
Beside the competitions, there will also be a varied supporting schedule: A speaker will put people into good humor during the contest. A Live DJ may also not fail. He is one of a party and will take his responsibility of entertaining participants and spectators until the end, damn serious! To have something for absolutely everybody, there will also be a tasty barbeque and cool drinks within the chill area.
Who wants to get into a mix of a cumulative contest action and a comfortable park party, joins us this weekend at the Swatch Snowpark Sölden!
