Shijinglong Park Session
In the afternoon, a small selection of seven riders under the lead of Terje Haakonsen went off to the Shijinglong Snowpark.
Nico Ciriego and his Crew have given a lot of effort to show how the shape of a perfect park should be.
"One goal during the Oakley Style Masters was, to show the very best snowboarders from all over the world how developed the Chinese snowboard market is. The Yanguang Railpark and the Snowpark reflect this definitely in the most positive way!
Everyone involved in this was more than pleased. The task of organizing a come together between the local crowd and these stars was one of the greatest achievements during their stay.“ says Miriam Deller, responsible for Marketing and Team at Nivit International.
