After the success of last years inaugral event, German freekier Nico Zacek and his team are getting ready to present another Medieval extravaganza on the Nebelhorn in Oberstdorf from April 13th to April 18th, and it looks like the feature under construction is going to be pretty special!
The crop of riders coming from North America, Scandinavia and Central Europe to session the “castle” includes stars like Laurent Favre, winner of the Red Bull Playstreets Oscar Scherlin, US-Open winner JF Houle, the German mega-talent Bene Mayr, and recent European open slopestyle winner Henrik Harlaut….this guarantees freestyle ski action of the highest level.
The new castle-kicker-constructions which have been developed by Nico in collaboration with the crew at Schneestern Parks, look pretty exciting, with a hip and loop the loop being addded to the huge quarter pipes and kicker from last year.
Skiunion’s Pally Learmond will be an invited photographer at the event, so expect regular updates on the editors blog, and a full feature review at the close of proceedings.
