Penken Park Mayrhofen - Get Ready to Penken!
This winter’s gonna be a blast! Tons of obstacles at the park, new rails (!), plenty of events and contests and … weekly videos from the Penken Park! No matter if you’re a rookie, a shred queen or a pro – Mayrhofen is the place to be! Here is some detailed information by our Spanish park designer Oriol Rosell, who, together with his team, will give everything to keep the park in the best possible condition every day of the season once more.
„Hola Chicas y Chicos! The mountains, the snow, the park… well, I guess you can already imagine why I can’t wait to start into the season 2016/17 together with my shape crew as soon as possible! Once again, this winter we will build and shape around 60 obstacles here at the Penken Park in order to guarantee great sessions! There’s going be some new elements at the pro rail line – two down rails, a donkey rail and an up-down rail – each 8 meters long. Obviously, we’ll stay true to our popular Pro Kicker Line, but we’re going to add various bits here and there and pimp it with side take-offs. HERE you can find all the information on the setup, plus we’d also highly recommend you to download our app for iPhones and Androids.
As usual, we will supply you with all the latest news from the park via Facebook and on Instagram you can check out the best pics. You’re also invited to tag your own pics from the park with #penkenpark, so that we can find and share them. NEW NEW NEW: Let’s just say this much – weekly videos from the park which we’re going to post on our social media channels – more detailed information on this will follow soon…
Alright, let’s talk about the events now – at the beginning of next year, there’s gonna be plenty of them. On January 6, 2017 the Vans Groms Open enter their 10th round at the park – the perfect chance for all the snowboard rookies to battle each other and gain their first contest experience. A bit more than a week later, on January 14, it’s time for the Penken Battle, the QParks Tour Stop for all of you who are stoked to join - no entry fee or other barriers.
On February 18, we’d like to invite all the #shredqueens to take part in the Girls Shred Session. Last year there were about 60 participants, let’s see how many chicas wanna be part of the coaching in 2017. On March 11 and 12 you can expect some cool vibes at the tour finals of the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY hosted by Ride Snowboards. Don’t miss the legendary after-contest-party with the Ästhetiker Crew - and of course us shapers… even more reason for you to join the fun! ;)
Oh, and don’t forget to check out our season teasers. See you shredding at the Vans Penken Park! Cheers, Oriol”
Freeskiers and snowboarders alike rave about the Vans Penken Park, one of the best snowparks in Europe. With its six different areas – the Medium Area, Advanced Jib Area, Pro Area, Fun Area, Advanced Kicker Area, and Kids Area – there are plenty of jumps and obstacles for riders of all ages and skill levels. The 4-person Sun-Jet chairlift provides quick access to the main part of the park and gives riders a great view of the pros shredding below, and the Mittertrett T-bar Lift is also there for easy access to the Kids Park.
