Where: Mayerhofen, Penken Park
Every day, we receive tons of emails promoting odd events all over the place. In our more sober moments we go through all of them and try to keep you in the loop regarding everything snowboarding. As far as we can remember nobody has ever claimed hosting “the world’s funniest snowboard contest”. Until we received the press release about the Ride and Seek event from our friends at Hotzone.tv. And judging from the guys behind the event (apart from hot-zone.tv also The Seeker Snowboard Shop), the superb location in Mayrhofen’s Vans Penken Park and especially the timing during the Snowbombing 2010 madness, they could be onto something! So better get ready as from April 7 to 9 you will have the opportunity to team up with some of the world’s best pro riders in snowboarding and have a good time on the mountain.
You want to know what Snowbombing is at all? You’re kidding, right? Snowbombing is universally acknowledged as the world’s greatest „show on snow.“ A unique festival with snowflakes and sunshine, snowboarding and great music, that goes down in Mayrhofen, Austria for the sixth time. In 2010, the Snowboard Online Proshop HOTZONE.TV and the Snowboard Proshop the SEEKER will organize a snowboard contest for all snowbombers, providing them with the opportunity to ride together with and learn from pro riders like Rudi Kroell, Joni Malmi and the snowboard legend Tom „Beckna” Eberharter. 15 snowboard pros will be on hand to team up with motivated snowbombers. Showing a great performance at the boardercross will be as important as seeking „hidden“ drinks on the course, and wearing fancy dress. What more could you ask for? You can be as camp as you want and get plastered! At the „cash give away sessions“ the best tricks will be rewarded with some moolah. Apart from the “sports” action in the Vans Penken Park, a massive party with the „Wax Wreckaz“ will take place at the Grillhofalm right next to the snowpark. I don’t think it can get any better!
Every motivated snowbomber can join in the game and sign-in at www.theseeker.at. There is no entry fee and the best perfomances will get a fair chunk of the 2,000 EURO prize money as well as goodies from Hotzone.tv and The Seeker.
