Whilst spring is slowly moving into the valleys and the first flowers are rising from their winter slumbers, there’s nothing of such sort happening in Soelden. On the contrary: Rudi and his team have moulded a new monster from the grounds around the Gigijoch and today will be the day to deflower it decently! Presently, the first riders are coming in to take a first glance at the "Incredible Project" 2011, an unprecedented assembly of kickers and pipes which may top everything Soelden has ever seen.
Everyone who’s been to Soelden once, knows what the resort stands for: a guarantee for snow, a sick Swatch Snowpark Soelden and sheer endless backcountry opportunities. Three guys from Slovenia couldn’t resist the call of the BIG 3s and the freeride paradise they offer: bumps, slabs, gullies, rocks … whatever a freerider’s heart desires, Bine Zaholar, Matevz Pristavec and Mitja Legat found it there.
MARCH, 5TH 2011
The sixth Freestyle Feast passed off at splendid weather conditions and made more people than ever pilgrim from all directions towards the Swatch Snowpark Sölden in order to celebrate our beloved freestyle! Live guitar accompanied by rap sounds, an evershining sun and stylish action on one and two boards were predominating the undisputed most relaxed scene come-together of the Ötztal valley.
Tomorrow, on the 5th of March, the Swatch Snowpark Sölden will once again celebrate the Freestyle Feast 2011! Freshly reshaped, Rudi and his team dandified the park for the most chilled out freestyle get together of the season. Of course, there’ll be a speaker, a DJ and everything else it takes for a kick-ass freestyle session!
This year, the legendary Freestyle Feast will for the sixth time rock the Swatch Snowpark Soelden! Traditionally, the emphasis at the Feast lies on fun: a relaxed get-together with friends, chilled out riding and party atmosphere including a BBQ will be the basis for the coolest freestyle event in the Swatch Snowpark Soelden 2011.
A perfect bluebird day, an awesome park, two professional riders and heaps of shredding were the components for a wicket shooting session in the Swatch Snowpark Soelden. Rasmus Dalberg Jørgensen and Moreboards Rider Mario Wanger went for the Pro Area after park designer Rudi had briefed them on what they should destroy! (S)Watch out folks, explicit content!
