The Mölltaler Gletscher resort has used its possibilities and contacts to satisfy the wishes of snowboarders on a really grand scale.
“Our snow supplies are very good and as there is no option of this kind near and far, we have decided to offer something extra to our visitors in summer and give them exclusive space to enjoy snowboarding also on summer days. And to show how serious we are, several great riders from all around Europe have been invited to join our summer SNOW Park opening,” explained Max Gottfried, the general manager of the Mölltaler Gletscher resort.
“Our summer SNOW Park will be located between the ski pistes Schareck 2 and Schareck 3, which is a big advantage as skiers won´t be restricted in this way and snowboarders can frolic on individual obstacles to the fullest. There will be 8 obstacles in total, including rails and a proper 14-metre-jump. The SNOW Park will be groomed every day and we would like to keep it opened as long as possible, at least until the end of July or as long as people show interest and the snow conditions are good,” added Max Gottfried.
Among many other things, the new summer Snow Park has one important benefit – experienced local riders have helped design it, including Austrian Olympic athlete and snowboarding professional Clemens Millauer. The park is going to be opened officially on Friday but the opening happening shall culminate on Sunday, in the presence of national teams from Austria, Italy, the Czech Republic and Germany. World Champion and Olympic Champion Anna Gasser from Austria will be the biggest star of the event, Czech Olympian athlete and Junior World Champion Šárka Pančochová will be there too.
