Before motivated winter racers can throw themselves out of the starting gates and into the Funcross, the special track has to be planned, designed and built up by the professionals of the Shape Academy first. After all, a racetrack should not be considered a Funcross until it can guarantee flow, action and maximum safety with its design! This season, three new projects go through this quality control: The skiing resorts Warth-Schröcken, Schilthorn – Piz Gloria and Bergeralm were picked up the racing fever and will go for the flow this winter! With the Funcross Schilthorn, we officially set foot in Switzerland! These new Funcross are joining the already well-known projects in Alta Badia, Annaberg, Canazei, Obergurgl, the Turracher Höhe and the Planai.
But it´s not just us, who got to some homework to do before the beginning of the season. Passioned winter sportsmen and -women have to make preparations: edges got to be tuned and skis have to be waxed. You want to know how to prepare your equipment cheap and without a service at a sports store? We got the answer here! It is no secret, that good equipment improves the own riding experience a lot. In the end, it´s the same for hobby skiers as for professional racers: Preparation is everything!
It is THE Funcross Event par excellence: The Funcross Race! At the Funcross Race in Obergurgl last season, 78 skiers and snowboarders took part at the race. Long story short: The event was a total success! For Gurgl, that was reason enough to host two races this winter. But that´s not all: Another Funcross Race will go down at the new Funcross in Warth-Schröcken! At this unique race, every skier and snowboarder can sign up and rush through the Funcross as often as he or she wants to. The fastest times not only reap fame and glory, but also win cool prizes!
Attention to all friends of a quick carving turn: There´s a speed control at the Anna-Park FunCross! Means for you: Carve even faster! Because at the Funcross Speed Snap in Annaberg, a photographer is taking professional photos of every racer who is rushing through the track – and there is also a chance to win cool prices at the raffle afterwards! While we got a photo session going on in Annaberg, there´s a film shooting in Alta Badia! At the Follow Me – Action Day at the Funcross La Para, skiers and snowboarders are filmed while rushing through the track. The result is an action-packed follow video and a nice memory of a skiing day full of flow!
