Crystal Ground: Snowpark is ready for the new season
The upcoming winter season at the Crystal Ground–Snowpark Kleinwalsertal will bring lots of innovations and improvements for and around the snowpark, but also new, innovative events and camps.
A lot has changed around the snowpark in Riezlern at the bottom of the Kanzelwand. The park itself is going to provide three Rail-Lines and one Kicker-Line for Freestyle enthusiasts of all riding levels. A bunch of totally new obstacles is going to cause a real furore as well as a completely new park-layout.
The Easy-Line consists of top-modern obstacles, on which also beginners can make their first tastes of success. The Public-Line appeals to all advanced riders and offers different boxes that are arranged in an interesting and challenging way as well as a nice wallride. Really skilled riders and pros should take a look at the Advanced-Line, which consists only of sophisticated and demanding rails, which leave nothing to be desired.
For all friends of airtime the Kicker-Line offers two Kicker tables; each equipped with two launches of different sizes to allow riders of every riding level to train new tricks or even to make the first jumping experiences.
An absolute highlight of the new season will be a small but nice woodtrail, the so called Wood Ground, which will be installed on the right side of the Kessler-Lift. In this extraordinary, innovative nature-line lots of treejibs, bonks and wood-slides can be enjoyed and all riders will find their own, personal challenge here.
Like in the previous years, the Chill-Area at the bottom of the park will again invite the riders to a relaxed barbecue and a refreshing drink this winter. This is the perfect location to meet friends, to calm down and to have a good time.
In the matter of events the upcoming season will be more interesting and varied than ever. The winter season will be opened with a veritable blowoff: The exceptional and unique art-project “art on snow” from 6th to 13 th of December. Internationally known board rider artists will present themselves and their work in front of the awesome and breathtaking panorama of the Kleinwalsertal.
Furthermore the Crystal Ground will become venue for three high-class camps. Beneath the second edition of the “freeskiers.net Style Camp powered by Almdudler”, Crystal Ground will also be the home base for the “days of pleasure in association with Rossignol”, a snowboard-only camp coached by experienced pros. With regard to the steadily growing and advancing female freestyle scene, a snowboard and ski camp just for Girls called “Girls rock the Park” has additionally been placed at Crystal Ground.
