Thu 23 February 12

On last Saturday, 18 February 2012, the participants were given a warm welcome by the snow masses and the diverse setup that had been built up out of them.

The second tour stop of the Wir Schanzen 2012 got off to a flying start despite the low visibility due to the fog the kids got up to the mountain really early to check out the park and to use the training time best as possible. 

The Snowpark Heubach in the Thuringian Forest has grown vastly since last season and presented itself in 
the best light with new obstacles and loads of snow.
 
The diffIcult weather conditions forced the organizers to change to modus spontaneously.
Hence the contest was held in a jam session format and the participants moved from obstacle to the next to show their skills.
All riders were highly motivated and in the best of 
moods. Just in time for the kicker-run the fog cleared up and brought a clear view for the participants’ 
session.
 
And what completes a decent Jungle Fever? Of course, the almost traditional monster doner from 
the spit – the perfect refreshment and together with cool music from the Red Bull Pinzgauer really an 
ideal package! 
 
Snowboard freeski
 
In the snowboard men’s category Andreas Gohl dominated.
 
Like at the fIrst tour stop Michael from Austria, just as at The 5ive Barbe-
Botzenhart convinced the jury with his clean and cue, again stood on top of the podium with his
challenging tricks.  
 
 
In less than two weeks, on 3 March 2012 the Wir Schanzen moves to the beautiful Vorarlberg to rock the NovaPark
at the Sajas Park Games. The Snowpark of the Silvretta Montafon with its different kickers and jibs 
will be the stage for the third tour stop.
