They love the snow, they love the mountains, they love their twin tips and snowboards – and they love the Ötztal valley area. The shape crew of the AREA 47 Snowpark Sölden is made up of 12 shapers from 8 different countries. Besides the park, they are also in charge of the Funslope and the Adrenalin Cup and they are up in the mountains during the whole winter.

Since winter finally arrived in Ötztal, the crew of the AREA 47 Snowpark Sölden shaped and shovelled as hard and quick as possible to present the first setup of 2017 TODAY! Freestylers get your boards and twin tips ready because you really don’t want to miss out on this epic combination of kickers, boxes and rails!

These were the first comments of first-class snowboarders like Boris Mouton, Rowan Coultas, Jose Aragon, Werni Stock or Roope Tonteri. Likewise, renowned freeskiers like Tom Granier, Tyler Harding, Javi Vega, Katie Summerhayes, Tobi Müller or Ole Pavel had the same sketchy feeling when they first saw Sölden’s humongous 2016 special obstacle in real life.
