At Hanglalm, the Mercedes-Benz Snowpark Kitzbuehel has been in constant development over the last few years. The snowpark has a classic mixture of kickers and rails for snowboarders and skiers of all abilities. A special feature is the treeline, built specifically out of various treejib elements. Furthermore, last season, a completely new area of the park was built to connect the upper and lower areas of the park. The lower part of the park offers more beginner and intermediate obstacles to jive and spring.
Steady changes are the only ways you can you turn a snowpark from action packed playground into a real challenge. With this in mind, the shapeteam, working alongside park designer Franz Lechner, planned a special highlight for last winter – a huge gap jump. The Gap Jump was very successful, not just with the local riders, but also because it attracted various film crews and professional riders to the snowpark.
For the new season, the shapeteam came up with more innovative ideas to compliment the existing park setup: A Double-Kinked Rail 12m, Kinked Rail 11m, Straight Industry Pipe 8m, Kinked Industry Pipe 8m, Oakley Signature Jib. The snow park has attracted sponsorship from Mercedes-Benz, Oakley and Planet Sports.
Local Tip: The Kitzbueheler Horn, Flo Handschuh.
“The off – piste at the Kitzbueheler Horn provides superb free ride possibilities with cliffs, channels and hidden tree runs.”
Local Tip: Mercedes-Benz Snowpark Kitzbuehel, Stephan Wimm.
“For years, I have ridden on the Resterhoehe, because it’s one of the few areas in our region where you can find good powder and there are also half opened forests for when the weather is bad. When the weather is OK, I head to the snowpark. There are quite a few good kicker and corner spots. I like the 3 Kickerline the most, as it’s one of the few Kickerlines where you can learn new tricks. Besides this, the kickerlines are very comfortable and safe and you nevertheless have the adequate airtime.
