Massive Park, Massive Sessions - Almdudler Snowpark Sölden solid as steel!

The Almdudler Snowpark Sölden is all set and only waiting for you! Come and behold the artful shape of one of Europe's best Snowparks! As we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words. Check out the brand-new photos and the clip for a better understanding of what it means to shred the Almdudler Snowpark Sölden as shown by Benny Wetscher, Mario Wanger and Company!

Kickers, rails, boxes, jibs - the hardware of the Almdudler Snowpark Sölden is quite impressive in its own right. Still, there’s more to it than simple facts. A sense of humility grows inside you, when you’re facing the grace of a perfectly shaped and set up Snowpark like this one. Park designer Christoph Schöpf and his Crew have outdone themselves to create what can only be called a freestyle heaven.

But before you roll your eyes over this song of praise and let your doubts prevent you from visiting the Almdudler Snowpark Sölden, have a look at the photos and watch the clips. To be frank, it is hard to say, whether the impression of awesomeness stems from the park itself or rather from the performances by riders such as Mario Wanger, Benny Wetscher, Daniel Pult or Marco Kuprian. Anyway, you’ll see that why words can’t live up to reality. And be assured, this is real!
