The Vans Penken Park in Mayrhofen is open. This is such good news for us we will post this press release in its entirety:
The Vans Penken Park Mayrhofen is one of a kind in Europe’s park scene: a motivated crew, daily shapings, high-quality elements as well as massive events let the park reign supreme. Right after Christmas the park was opened and that opening was everything but quiet!
The days around Christmas brought loads of fresh snow to the Zillertal valley and thus parkdesigner Sven Toller and his crew gave it their all and put up a nice first setup. On December 27th the Vans Penken Park was officially opened, which made the day of all freestyle aficionados! Picture book weather and a nicely shaped Advanced Line made the day on the Penken more than just perfect! An 8m Down Rail, an 8m Down Box, as well as 12 and 14m Kickers made the heart of shredding enthusiasts beat faster. The Jib Line comes with an 8m Down Donkey Kinked Rail, a 6m Down Tube, an 8m Down Flat Tube, an 8m Down Rail, a 9m Down Flat Box, an 8m Down Step Down Box and an 8m Flat Box. The Baby Park shines in all its splendour, too: three Kickers of 4-6m, a 3m Flat Butterbox, a 3m Rainbow Butterbox, a 4m Banked and a Down Butterbox, as well as 6m Flat Down and Wave Butterboxes guarantee pure freestyle action for shredding beginners.
In order to celebrate the opening accordingly, the riders were also caught on tape. The freeski pros Niki Sagmeister, Lisa Zimmermann, Flo Ehgartner and Markus Obwallner were living it up on the Advanced Line. The snowboarders weren’t far behind, either: Roli Scharmer, Marvin Salmina, Chris Kroell and Antoine Tuchant enjoyed the day in the Vans Penken Park and had loads of fun! See for yourself in our video edits and relive the perfect shredding day on the Penken.
