A new layout design is in the works that will ensure even greater fun and
optimized visitor circulation at this year's event. The Big Air snow ramp
will be situated much closer to the lake and encircled arena-style by a
spectator's zone, guaranteeing audiences a perfect view of all four large
installations from every location.
Olympic Door Opens for Freeskiers and Snowboarders
Freestlye.ch Rider 2011
A whole new world is opening up for freeskiers and snowboarders as their disciplines gear up to premiere at the 2014 Winter Olympic
Games in Sochi, the city on the coast of the Black Sea.
However, these unflappable athletes don't skip a beat; they're ahead of their time. This year's slopestyle experts in the freeskiing and snowboarding disciplines will certainly have their eyes on the Olympic Games in Sochi (Swiss included among the best), but before heading to the "Russian Riviera", they'll have a couple of more chances to test their virtuosity among themselves at the "Swiss Riviera" at lake of Zurich.
New Look for Label World / Spotlight on Up-And-Coming Labels
The new layout design will also include Label World, the trend sports fair
that provides a platform for businesses and organizations in the freestyle
sports industry. The focus this year will be on emerging innovative Swiss
labels. Favorable terms and conditions will be extended to startup
companies registering for a stand at freestyle.ch.
MTB Dirt Jump Debuts as a Contest Discipline
Not only freestyle.ch's athletes and makers, but also its visitors continually
do their part in keeping freestyle.ch fresh and innovative. Its Facebook
fans (45,000 to date and counting) have inspired freestyle.ch to launch
its first-ever Mountain Bike Dirt Jump Contest.
A Skate Contest Open to All
Following the incredible reception of the Bowl and the Mini Ramp in recent years, the organizers have decided to open up the
skateboarding attractions for its visitors. The big skate ramps will be replaced this year by a flat are used for “Game of Skate" that has
become enormously popular amongst skaters in the past few years.
The starting line-up is open to every man, woman, and child – the bigger the bag of tricks and creative juices, the better the chances of being celebrated like the big names at Sunday's finals.
