Ready, Set, FUNCROSS!
The Funcross Race in Obergurgl
14.02.2020

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.

The Funcross Obergurgl gives the finishing touches to the Diamond of the Alps. Dynamic waves, fast banked turns and action-packed jumps offer skiers and snowboarders the flow feeling, that has only been experienced by professional racers before. The Funcross Race even tops that! This race differs to all others. How? There is no registration in advance needed for instance. Just show up at the start of the Funcross, register and take part at the race. Once you’re registered, you can carve through the Funcross as often as you like. From 10 AM to 2 PM, every participant can take as many runs as he or she likes. Our hint for your success: Get to know the course and don’t risk too much at the first couple of runs.

Cool Prizes & Title Defenders

It’s the third time that the Funcross Race going down in Gurgl. Last year, 78 passionate racers took part at this special race, but the fastest run of the day was put down by the same person as in the year before. David Scheiber was the fastest on skis and has won every Funcross Race in Obergurgl so far. And he is not the only serial winner in Gurgl. Lana Behla has won the women’s snowboard category at both Funcross Races. Can David and Lana defend their titles as Mr. & Ms. Funcross? It won’t be a walkover, that’s for sure.

With snowboard and ski, there are two disciplines at the Funcross Race that are again separated into women, men, female and male youngsters categories. In total, there are 600€ of prize money to win and in addition to that, every racer gets goodies from Funcross and Gurgl. The prize giving will be at the restaurant “Zirbenalm”.

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.

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!
