After three months of what has been a super exciting tour across the Alps, it is finally time for the QParks Tour Finals! The Tour’s 10th and final stop will take place on April 16th, 2016, at the Superpark Dachstein in Austria. 90 out of the hundreds of freeskiers and snowboarders who answered “YES” at the 2015/16 QParks Tour question “Ready for take-off?”, are getting ready for the final showdown at the Blue Tomato Roof Battle this April. Nothing less but bold stunts and tricks are expected at the 2015/16 QParks Tour Finals!
Over these three months, nine contests have taken place across Europe’s highest and most extensive mountain rage system, hosted in snowparks all over Austria, Italy, Germany and Switzerland. Hundreds of athletes have done their very best, showed their gnarliest moves, all with one purpose! To impress the judges and gather valuable points that would give them one of the 90 tickets leading to the QParks Tour Finals! Now it’s the time to enjoy the fruits of their hard work. Cash will be flowing in this final slopestyle competition in Austria’s Superpark Dachstein, as well as plenty of goodies by Blue Tomato, Anon, Neff, Amplifi and of course QParks. The 10.000€ cash prize is waiting to be won by the very best of the athletes, whereas a wildcard for the Pleasure Jam 2016 is waiting for the overall winners in the snowboard categories for men, ladies and groms! ÖSV is also giving an invitation for an exclusive freeski coaching to the winner of the freeski category too!
45 freeskiers and 45 snowboarders (20 men, 5 women, 15 groms men and 5 groms ladies) will be snowing their sickest moves, this time going after the top spot of the podium and all of the benefits mentioned above!
In this year’s QParks Tour, Anon is all about the Rookies! At each of the 9 Tour Stops, Anon’s scouts were all over the place looking for those extra special ones among the groms men and groms ladies categories. At the QParks Tour Finals on April 16th, two Anon material sponsorings for the season 2016/17 will be given to the two who will impress the judges more than others will!
Whether an athlete or a spectator, for the duration of the Tour you had the opportunity to participate in Anon’s Hottest Shot competition! The Hottest Shot of each stop won goodies from Anon, but at the QParks Tour Finals a lot more is at stake: A professional photo session by Anon! The lucky winner will be chosen among the winners of each stop and will be announced on the day.
All prizes will be given at a relaxed chill & grill session in Dachstein’s valley station. There, you can enjoy the BBQ by Blue Tomato and listen to the cool sounds of the program scheduled. Catch the after party action later on in the day, in Schladming’s best locations! The party is open to both athletes and spectators, meanwhile the athletes are invited to end this great season with a free celebratory drink at the Friends Bar!
Good luck to all the athletes competing! May this be your best performance yet.
Have fun and see you there!
