JIb Da House Kaprun, Austria November 2010

After the succesfull event last year, we were once again allowed to stop the traffic in Kuprun and build the jib event for the invited   urban skiiers from Europe.

We had a really short timetable to be able to prepare the event.  With the road closed from  miday Friday, till  Sunday, we had to build, hold the event and then clean up, so traffic could resume back to normal.  This included putting up and taking down scaffolding.

The set up included a 5 meter scaffold drop in ramp, to a 7 meter flat down rail or the option of a 6 meter perferatted pipe.  Both were set at 16 degrees gradient.  The extra challenge for the skiiers was the short landing space because of the tightness with Intersport Bründl´s party room!!  This is where the nights entertainment with local DJ´s took place to the early hours.

Five truck loads of snow from Gro├čglockner and rails from Kitzsteinhorn helped make this event possible along with some of the local boys helping.

The winners were:  1st Roy Kittler (Germany) 2nd Markus Eder (Italy) 3rd Flo Geyer (Germany)

A big thanks to the local guys who helped build and shovel.

I look foward to even a bigger event next year………… I hope with snowboarders included aswell!!!
