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.
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!
