Within just two and a half weeks the 30-strong team constructed the ready-to-use 49-meter-high, 120-meter-long Big Air ramp. Like a giant, it stands with one foot in the stadium, ready to catapult the daring ski and snowboard freestylers into the air. The ramp straddles three plots of land, from a two-lane road, to the hockey stadium forecourt, across the grandstand and finally down to the hockey stadium. Precise planning on the order of centimeters and installation were, therefore, of enormous importance. Likewise, due to the enormous height of the ramp and the load resulting from more than 1,000 cubic meters of snow, statics continued to be the focal point for both planning and execution.
Initiator allrounder has succeeded not only in organizing the ARAG Big Air Freestyle Festival event that brings 9,000 spectators streaming into the Sparkassenpark, but also in bringing the first Big Air double World Cup to Europe. The snowboard and skiing freestylers compete here for the World Cup points which, perhaps, will bring them to the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang.
