Snow for optimal park conditions at the FIS Slopestyle World Cup

The FIS Slopestyle World Cup will take place from 23 to 28 January at the Seiser Alm (South Tyrol/Italy). Some of the best freestylers from the snowboard and free ski scene will be there to amaze both judges and public with their performance. 

The Seiser Alm was a technically challenging set-up for the international event. The existing, well-known park was extended by 150 meters for the World Cup and now has a total length of 600 meters, consisting of three sectors with varying technical structures, rails and kickers. 

The company F-Tech Snowparks has been working on the design and conversion of the park since early January. They are being helped in their efforts by modern snow-making technology from TechnoAlpin. The preparations mainly involved TF10 fan guns which created a layer of snow without problems in a very short time. The use of powerful snow guns from TechnoAlpin meant the cold temperatures could be exploited to the full. The large projection range and wide distribution of the fan guns was a particular advantage. “In order to hold an international event of this magnitude, you have to prepare a suitable surface and that was made much easier by these modern systems”, says an F-Tech representative. That is why the company placed its faith in TechnoAlpin as a partner during the World Cup.

Following the training sessions, the first qualifying rounds for snowboarders and skiers will be held on 25 and 26 January, followed by two days of finals on 27 and 28 January. TechnoAlpin is looking forward to some spectacular days on an immaculately prepared surface and wishes all participants every success.
