The Terrain Park Zugspitze invites riders to take part in the big spring camp on Germany’s highest mountain...
Two weeks of freestyle fun and spring sun: that’s what Spring in the Park is all about. For the second time, this camp will take place on Zugspitze at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, from March 31st to April 15th, 2007. Freeskiers and snowboarders will get their money’s worth with two weeks of coaching, equipment tests, special girly offerings and an old school contest on April 7th. In addition, special offers for accommodation and lift tickets will tempt riders to come to Germany’s highest mountain.
At the coaching, ski and snowboard pros of the K2 and Ride teams will advise riders how to perfectly perform their tricks on rails and kickers. At the girl’s week, Michelle Parker (USA) will coach the slopestyle ski girls while Martina Tscharner (SUI) will take care of the female snowboarders. Additionally, a female fitness trainer will do some stretching with the riders to warm themselves up.
Andreas 'Mone' Monsberger (AUT) and Reto Kestenholz (SUI) will be on hand to coach the male snowboarders, Daniel Schießl (GER) will look after the male freeskiers.
Plus, a professional photographer will take pictures of the participants. Later, they can download the high resolution pix of their airs and railslides free from the websites www.zugspitze.de and www.snowparkguide.com.
Over both weeks, the participants can hire out and test ski and snowboard equipment for free at the K2 and Ride booths. Just like last year, an old school contest will take place at the second weekend (April 7th, 2007).
This year, the organizers will take special care of the beginners: a new easy line will be installed just below the chill area. In general, the set-up will be adapted to the terrain even better than last year.
