Spring Weekends in the brand new SNOW PARK Bispingen
True to the slogan „the only constant is change“ QParks went on the search for a totally new snowpark destination to fullfill the riders dreams of the endless winter and ended up in the indoor resort called SNOW DOME in Bispingen, in the north of Germany.
Based on the constant weather and temperature conditions slightly under the zero-degree level at 365 days a year, QParks realize a new concepted snowpark set-up for all freestylers. Accompanied by the new SNOW PARK Bispingen starts an event series with two weekends full of action, contests, Live DJ performance and a lot of fun and riding for freeskiers and snowboarders: the SNOW PARK „Spring Weekends“ presented by funsporting.com!
Imagine that the winter season is not ending with the warm temperatures and the meltdown of the snow. Imagine that there is no reason to put your loved snowboard or skis in the corner for the summer break. And your freestyle skills are not forced to end in Spring. QPark has solved the problem by going indoor and building with the SNOW PARK Bispingen the first QPark in an indoor skiresort. The alp-proven park-designers bring all their experience and know-how to Bispingen to realize an outstanding set-up and a freestylers-orientated event for all riders in the triangle of Hamburg, Hannover, Bremen and moreover. The „Spring Weekends“ come with a big program, packed with many highlights.
At both action days, Friday, 1st of May, and Saturday, 2nd of May, the pure pleasure of riding together in the SNOW PARK is in the focus of all participants. At Friday the program starts after the arrival of the bus transfer organized by the Freerider shop Hamburg at the SNOW PARK Bispingen at 4 p.m. For the beginners we can offer free beginner-coaching by coaches of the Freerider snowboarding school (including rental boards) and a free board test of totally new „banana shaped“, so called rocker boards. At the same time starts the pro coaching in the SNOW PARK for the advanced riders with proriders like the Austrian Shredhead René Schnöller, Benni Deeg and the local teamrider Benny Urban.
Throughout the pro coaching you get the chance to get direct feedback about your riding and tips to boost your riding level. On the other hand you can ride with the pros and get essentiel informations how it is to be a pro snowboarder. Be there…
And as it is common for a spring session, there will be a chill-area and a snow-bar with drinks and the inspiring and motivating sounds of Lokomachine & support (NEF – New Electronic Frontline). And because the parkriders are in the focus of the attention, a professional photographer and a filmer join us at the session who try to collect the best shoots of all riders. The photos can be downloaded for free the following days at the park-website www.snowpark-bispingen.de!
Additionally and as a highlight of Friday and also Saturday occurs a small contest session. On Friday the Goodies-for-Trix Session starts at 7 p.m. and the following day already at 4 p.m. The format of the Goodies-for-Trix session is as simple as can be: Everybody who is at the SNOW PARK and willing to compete can attend. Just show your best line over the kickers or the rails and when the judges are impressed of your style you get the winning goodies of our sponsors straight after! For all there is also the possibility to win some goodies when we start the wheel of fortune for the tombola! At the end of the Session on Saturday there will be th e possibility to reload the energy tanks of your body at the Rider´s Dinner (for EUR 7.- you get a meal of choice and a drink) and wind up the evening with the Live DJ sounds of DJ Vito (DELUXE RECORDS) at the Rider´s Night.
The following Sunday invites all riders once again to spend a relaxed freestyle day in the SNOW DOME Bispingen. Some will prefer to hang out in the chill-area to recover from the last days, all other can ride in the perfect shaped park set-up to the rider´s choice sound.
