Westendorf, 21.-23. März 2008 – the easter parade –
Since 1998 the Ästhetikers have been organising together with the Shredheadz this legendary slopestyle event in Westendorf. Today the event is more than a slopestyle contest, it is Austrias oldest, established freestyle snowboard event. Still, its not the size of event that matters, it’s about the good vibes and the fun of the sport.
Freestyle for everybody is the motto of the SHRED DOWN
For the first time the event will be held at 2 different locations with 2 diffeernt setupsMain Event / Slopestyle Contest
As always, the slopestyle Contest will take place in the Boarders Playground Funpark on the mountain. The Pro Park will be reshaped to fullfill todays expectations of international slopestyle contests.
This year the spotlight will be pointed at the Rookies. 40 youngbloods will get the chance on Saturday to qualify for the Finals on Sunday, where they can battle it out with the Pros.
The best Rookie will get the first wildcard for the Wängl Tängl 2009. The Pros will compete with some of the
Rookies for some nice Prizemoney, the Ä Special Awards and 3 more wildcards for the Wängl Tängl 2009.

On Saturday evening, at the BAG JUMP session on the Skiwiese, you will be able to listen to some awesome hiphop tunes by D.J. Emodee.
At the BAG JUMP Afterparty in der Karat Bar you can listen to the skills of the AUDIOHEADZ, which is a great local Rockband.
The Contestparty in the Alpenrosensaal is known way beyound austrian borders. The Creme de la Creme of the Austrian hip hop und D.J. Szene is performing at this Party every year.
Last year we had nobody none other than the Austrian hiphop group TEXTA live on stage. This year, D.J. Beware who is well known from the Austrian cult radio station FM4, will tear the place apart with his famous mash-up mixes and you can be truly curious as to what the Ästhetiker and the Shredheadz will have planned for you on this easter weekend in Westendorf.
