Park 9 Freestyle Event in Verbier

18. February 2013

On the 16th of March Verbier will be hosting the third edition of the Park 9 competition. The event, which will take place in the Verbier Snow Park.

We will feature freestyle skiing and snowboarding taking on a golf theme.
The fun park will be transformed to look like a golf course with 9 features in the park consisting of a variety of Kickers and rails and some surprises. The event will be a team event with each team having 4 riders, which can be mixed between skiers and boarders and males and females. We will have a maximum of 15 teams. On the day each team will have a tee/start time and work there way around the park/course feature by feature. Each feature depending on its difficulty will have a par rating so skiers/boarders will have to up the ante to get pars, birdies, eagles or even double eagles. The best 2 team scores at each hole will count towards the team totals. The top 4 teams will then go into a 3-hole play off to see who will crowned the 2013 Park 9 Champions. Prizes include: prize money, clothing, bar tabs, Verbier lift passes and much more.

 

After the event the after party kicks off in The Farinet Après-Ski/Nineteenth Hole from 5pm to 8.30pm then the party moves to the Pub Mont Fort from 10pm to 2am and the party finishes in the Casbah. On the spot prizes will be given in the Après Ski at The Farinet and Pub Mont Fort for best trick, best fall, most stylish rider to name a few.
