A winter full of flow!
The Funcross season 2018/19
10.04.2019

We’re looking back at an action-packed winter. We hosted events like the Funcross Race where like-minded skiers and snowboarders were challenging each other at Funcross Obergurgl or the Funcross Speed Snap in Annaberg. And once again, the Funcross was the place to be for flowy runs.

Dashing with high speed along the racing line, riding smoothly over snow waves and holding a compact body position when approaching the banked curves: In the past, it was only possible to watch that. This winter, our Funcross again offered motivated skiers and snowboarders an authentic race experience.  This season, winter sports(wo)men were able to chase the perfect flow on eight different Funcross tracks – three of them are new in the Funcross community: The Funcross Col Rodella in Canazei, the Funcross Anzère and the Funcross La Para in Alta Badia.

Double the Flow!

Funcross La Para in Alta Badia represents a very special newcomer. You can race down in two different ways: One entrance is offering you a track with many banked turns for perfect carving and the second entrance opens the door for high-speed racing on snow waves. At Funcross La Para, we double the flow!

Chasing the fastest time

The Funcross Race in Obergurgl was a mega highlight of this season. Almost 80 riders took the challenge  to compete with each other in a one-of-a-kind race. The special thing about the Funcross Race? It’s suitable for everyone! Racing newbies and carving experts, everyone was able to register during the event day, before rushing down the track. But as everybody knows, pictures are worth a thousand words:

Funcross Speed Snap

Your own Funcross action photo? Exactly! At the Funcross Speed Snap in Annaberg, motivated racers were able to pick up their very special Funcross shot. For two hours, a professional photographer was strolling through the Anna-Park FunCross and took photos of everyone who was speeding through the flowy run. Afterwards, all participants got the chance to win a brand-new helmet!

Winter is coming to an end and soon, even the most persistent ski area will have to stop lift operation. But you do not have to despair, the next winter is coming for sure! And then, the Funcross tracks will open their gates again and everyone can GO FOR THE FLOW!

More Stuff

This season was way too short. But even though the closing of all skiing areas may break our hearts, these actions have been necessary to battle the corona crisis. Now we have to work together as a team in order to overcome this crisis as soon as possible, so you guys can still have a great summer and an even better Winter afterwards!

GO FOR THE FLOW! That’s the claim of the Funcross and it stands for fun and action away from regular slopes. During the Funcross race you can experience the feeling of perfect flow on banked turns, little jumps and snow waves. On March 19, the second Funcross Race of the season takes place – and as always, it’s all about fun!

It’s time to bring authentic racing experiences to Gurgl again! On Thursday, February 27, the Funcross Race takes place at the Diamond of the Alps. There, experienced sportsmen and -women as well as motivated youngsters can rush through the flowy track and compete against like-minded racers.

Attention to all carvers, we got a big announcement to make: There´s a speed control at the Anna-Park FunCross. So, let´s ski even faster! On February 8, going faster will be highly rewarded in Annaberg.

This bison does not live in in the prairie, its home is the Funcross. The BISON X by PRINOTH works perfectly in special areas like the Funcross Turracher Höhe. Thanks to the work of our experienced snowcat operator Hilton Scott and his BISON X, the highest quality and safety measures are guaranteed at the Fun Mountain. We paid him a visit.

The empty, perfectly shaped Funcross is in front of you. All other participants are waiting behind you for their turn. Behind you, that´s where they are supposed to be. Your run will prove that, it’s showtime. You enter the starting gate, take a deep breath and throw yourself into the Funcross. Welcome to the Funcross Race Series 2019/20!

While others still mourn warmer times, we already said our goodbyes to summer and fall and are ready to welcome the cold, frost and winter like good old friends you haven´t seen for far too long. We are ready to start into the season 2019/20!
