In its very first season, the new Golden Roofpark at Axamer Lizum already became the number one choice for shred heads around Innsbruck. However, the terrific amount of 99 starters at the Gold & Glory got the organizers of the contest really stoked. Snowboarders from all over Europe obviously didn’t want to miss this premiere and tested the new park on its shredability during the contest.
There were several reasons that made this seventh QParks Snowboard Tour Stop at the brand-new Golden Roofpark such a success: blue skies and sunshine, a nice slopestyle setup featuring a rail, a tube, four kickers and a corner – besides a park full of enthusiastic freestylers. Here’s who, out of 46 snowboarders went home packed with goodies from WeAre, QParks, AMPLIFI and Pinetime Clothing plus extra pocket money in a total value of 1,200 €.
