Ischgl Snowpark on the Austrian side
Measuring at over 1,000 metres in length, Ischgl Snowpark is one of Europe’s longest freestyle terrain parks. Indeed, according to its own information, it is “possibly the longest terrain park in the Alps”. There are two separate areas to explore:
The upper VELLIL Park Area at 2,600m is dedicated to beginners and advanced skiers. This park area offers up five lines overall:
- ROLLER CROSS line with 6 wave roller elements
- LARGE kicker line with 10 jumps and corner features
- MEDIUM kicker line with 10 jumps, corner und wallride features
- Jib line with 14 boxes and pipeslide features
- SMALL kicker line with 6 jumps and wave roller features
The IDALP Park Area, at 2,450m, is split into three zones:
- The “Kingsizepark” (Pro Level) where pros can hit tricks and shred at world-class level. This park draws freestyle stars from all around the globe.
- The “Publicpark” (intermediate to pro level), where daredevils can take on the two Medium Quattro kicker lines (public 8m and rookie 5m) as well as a rail line
- The “Beginnerpark” with a roller line including 6 jib features and 4 tabletops
The “Public Bagjump”, a huge airbag, is a fun highlight in the lower section of the park – a great opportunity to hone the tricks you don’t dare try on the snow.
Samnaun’s Obstacle Freestyle Board Park on the Swiss side
The “Obstacle Freestyle Board Park” in the Samnaun area is the Swiss answer to its big brother in Ischgl. This park is primarily geared up to advanced boarders and freeskiers. The park is located somewhat to the west of the Alp Trider Eck lifts and also offers several unique obstacles, such as barrels for jibbing.
