Out of the gate Janne Korpi, Peetu Piiroinen & Ville Uotila rapidly fired tricks with gunfire style 720’s over the first kicker. The crowd went crazy when Peetu popped a huge backside 1080 over the second kicker while Ville transferred backside 360 over Janne’s backflip 180. Down at the Red Bull End Section it got even wilder with Peetu’s switch front board to switch crippler in the pipe, Ville’s backside 180 transfer over the wallride and Janne brought it home with an Alley Oop Backside Rodeo.

Meanwhile, the sun was shining, the Vans Waffle Iron was hot and spectators lapped the park all day while watching the action from the chairlift. The 2nd place team YMCA admittedly had the best team uniform and huge style. Mathias Weissenbacher, Clemens Schattschneider & Adrian Krainer kept riding the Vans Penken Park long after the contest was over – but during the event it was moves like a Switch Double Back Flip 180 by Clemens and back to back 1080’s from Mathias that won over the crowd. Mathias’ moves earned him the award for Most Impressive Rider of the Day.

“The Collective” Max Buri, Boris Bu¨hler & Tor Lundstro¨m walked away with the 3rd place prize and Eric Willett, Arthur Longo, & Kalle Ohlson from Team Off The Wall enjoyed the laid back contest vibe while jumping and spinning their way into 4th.The Best Line of The Day went to Ville Uotila for his creative use of the course. His innovative approach to transfers, stomped frontside 360 bonk on the Fiat Up Box and a massive backside 180 over the wall ride were a pleasure to watch. Best Jib went to 4th place “Off The Wall” team members Arthur Longo and Kalle Ohlson for their miller flip high five.

After the conclusion of the snow finals, the action was starting in the village of Mayrhofen with the skate qualification round and a Best Trick Session. In true Wa¨ngl Ta¨ngl style the format awarded creativity and innovation. There were many winners but Jake Collins took home the most cash for tricks, with back to back moves on the massive mini-ramp.

A free open-air concert capped off the night at Musik Pavillion. Sempre Coaz got the crowd going and Those Furious Flames rallied them into a frenzy with their exuberant hard rock n’ roll sound, leaving the crowd chanting ‘one more song’ as they left the stage. Swedish rockers Truckfighters mixed different styles for a unique take on modern rock and Headliners Seether closed down the night with their post-grunge sound and a happy crowd of skaters, snowboarders, artists, and Tyrolean locals.
