More than 70 snowboarders and freeskiers will test their limits in Ischgl Jan. 23, 2010, in the legendary Frejn's Freeride Inferno.
Seventy freeriders will hurtle downhill off piste after a mass start. All competitors choose their own routes on pristine terrain through woodland, with jumps over rocks and natural obstacles. The winner is the first to reach the finish line at 1000 metres below.
The race is accompanied is followed by drinking, dancing, and partying which goes on until the early hours.
The Frejn's Freeride Inferno team told OnTheSnow: "We believe we have in Ischgl the ideal premises, allowing us to provide the skiers and snowboarders with a demanding and diversified track."
Freestylers in Ischgl flock to the state-of-the-art Warsteiner Snow Show Park for its kickers, ramps, half-pipes, and rails. The park is divided into different areas depending upon experience: a professionals' park, public park, and beginners' park.
