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!
