Our Park Designer Markus Treiber welcomed the easy-going snowboard crew who came all the way from Oure, Denmark around noon. During a park check run, the eager junior shapers had the chance to catch a glimpse of the full park setup. Meanwhile, 27 obstacles are up and standing and there are more to come. For the shape crew of Snowpark Gastein it’s part of their daily routine to do check runs. Here, it’s important to detect danger zones, strained take-offs and other abnormalities. This way they can ensure safe shred sessions. Then, it was time for some hands-on work! After closing certain obstacles, the snowboard trainees had the chance to tackle things. Park Designer Markus Treiber provided support by explaining the special characteristics of certain obstacles. What is important when reshaping boxes compared to jumps? How do you actually work with a shape tool? The shape crew gave happily answers to these and more questions. Eventually, the Danish snowboard squad helped during the reshape and did a good job handling the shape tool.
All in all, it has been an interesting exchange for all participants. We say thank you to the ski and snowboard school for the great interest in the shape life, for being easy-going shaper aspirants and we are looking forward to welcoming some of you at the Shape Academy soon! As always, we also have some visual proof of the whole happening! Check it out!
