pawing at the starting gates!
From the 8th till the 11th of February 2012, the MayrhofenBergbahnen invites all winter sports fans to experience the best of extreme sports in the Freeski / Slopestyle segment.Over 80 athletes from 12 nations will compete at Vans Penken Park in three categories: Pro-class, Rookie-class and Ladies’-class.A number of pros have been invited, including the reigning Austrian champion Patrick Hollaus, Jonas Hunziker and YannicLerjen from Switzerland, Roy Kittler from Germany and GuilaumeSbrava from France. Spectators can look forward to a mass of spectacular tricks as we are awaiting Europe’s top-class riders.
The contest will be open to public viewing at MayrhofenBergbahnen’s Vans Penken Park during the daytime of 09.02 and 10.02. Make a note of those dates; it’s definitely worth a visit! Two internationally renowned presenters from the freeski scene will be there to fire up the crowd: Martin Misof and NicoZacek.In the tent city on the mountain (lower Terminus of the “Sunjet” lift by the Funpark), you will have the opportunity to test the newest skis from the skiing company Nordica. The test is free for everyone on presentation of an identification document.
Freeskiing Action in the centre of Mayrhofen
On 09.02 at 20.30 in the town of Mayrhofen (Waldfestplatz), we have prepared a special highlight: the Mercedes-Benz GLK Night Show. Last year, this public show went down very well with locals and visitors alike.
This year’s edition of the show will entertain all spectators with a promising evening schedule: one of the newest international freeski movies “Legs of Steel” will be shown on a massive screen at the Waldfestplatz. Stars from this movie will introduce themselves to the public before being pulled up a ski-jump by two Mercedes-Benz GLKs and catapulting themselves into the air. An impressive projection of the ski-jump and a stunning concluding fireworks display round off this show extravaganza. Music (Wax Wreckaz), presenters (Martin Misof/NicoZacek), drinks and hearty snacks will be in ample supply. Entrance is free and everyone is welcome!
