Snowboarding lives high on the Hochkeil

At the Hochkeil Banked Slalom on Saturday in Mühlbach am Hochkönig, over 100 snowboarders from Australia to Austria enjoyed the comfortable steep turn race in perfect weather. The many children in particular combined speed and fun in the natural snow.

On Saturday, the traditional Banked Slalom took place in the Hochkeil natural snow ski area in Mühlbach am Hochkönig. It had snowed a little the night before and so the Hochkeil was once again completely white and still somewhat shrouded in cloud in the morning.
Nevertheless, over 100 snowboarders from 8 nations made it to the competition at the foot of the Mandlwand.
The Steikurven course was still hard and bumpy at the beginning, but all the riders helped together, shaping holes and waves out of the course and sliding the fresh snow nicely into the bankes. The start was on time and thanks to the modern chip timing system, participants were able to tackle their three runs whenever they wanted. This session format was particularly relaxed for the 40-plus kids, so despite the adrenaline of racing against the clock, there was no major competitive stress. The sun soon came out and all the participants, from Olympic athletes to four-year-olds, showed off their skills on the board. Old-school boards from the snowboard museum were presented along the route to celebrate the tradition of the oldest snowboard discipline.

The best of the three timed runs was ranked. Once again this year, the main prizes in the form of snowboards from our supporters Goodboards, Nidecker, Yunika and Amplid went to the average times. So every rider could really hope to win a prize, and once again all the children were allowed to take home a little something – e.g. from SP Connect or cool goggles from Out Of.
There were also awards for the fastest runners.

All results here:

The events ended with the festive award ceremony at the Arthurhaus umbrella.
Many thanks to all helpers, sponsors and participants.
