Mr. Snow in the Festival Feeling
Normally, the De Schorre recreation area in the Belgian Boom is known as the location for the world-famous electronic dance music festival “Tomorrowland”. Last Sunday, it became the venue of a more sporting event. 40 extreme sports presented theirselves at the 8th edition of “Xtreme Xperience”, flexed their muscles and caused adrenaline flashes.
Main act of the Day: Mr. Snow had 2 booths and was represented with a total of 860 square meters of dry slope. First of all Mr. Snow was presented on the 800 square meters large artifical ski slope of the Snow Sports Club Flanders. Within 6 hours and during a temperature of 15 degrees Celsius and windy conditions a completely new beginner ski run by Mr. Snow was built up. The slight inclination and the ideal driving conditions on the ski matting offered ideal circumstances for all snow sports enthusiasts to gain first experiences with the sport. The club also offered courses with certified trainers for skiing and snowboarding.
But even advanced snowboarders frolicked what keeps the stuff on the snow substitute. For example, there was a kicker and a flat box, a modular obstacle element for skilful gliding-over. Also, some students of the Belgian top sports school, such as Illas van Hoof, showed what they have learned under the guidance of the youth coach Childeric Bogaert. By the way, the whole event took place under his leadership.
The second place in the line-up, Mr. Snow had secured by the Burton Riglet Park. Burton has been touring with a mini fun park in Belgium for a number of years, especially designed for kids of the age from 3 till 6. Since 2013, the American snowboard manufacturer has trusted Mr. Snow now. Thanks to the special structure the textile snow guarantees optimal control of the snowboard. Also at the Xtreme Xperience Burton was on location. Pulled on a string or in the trainer’s hand, the toddlers got to know the slippery surface and learned important coordinative skills.
Again a big gratitude for the good cooperation to all helpers and skiers for a successful event! We are in a festival mood now.
