Besides the new boxes and rails in the snowpark there will be a special Kidspark this year, where all young snowboard rookies can show what they are made of. For all nature lovers the new Woodpark will be ready as a natural playground to jib for all one´s worth. Another highlight will be the brandnew kickerline. The snowpark can be reached by a speedy t-bar lift or by Germany´s first combined mountain railway.
