But for once, this postponement seems like it’s a good thing, due to weather conditions rather than the event not happening…
Since 24th October, the lifts on Dachstein glacier are operating and freestlye enthusiasts are happy with an open Superpark Dachstein. Ever since, the snowpark supply and the fantastic weather enable one great session after the other for snowboarders and freeskiers. With uninterrupted sunshine on the glacier though, the current snow conditions are not sufficient for the construction of a compliant World Snowboard Tour International setup. With the new date, nothing should get in the way of an epic 13th Pleasure Jam in the snow-reliable Schladming-Dachstein region. The schedule of this year’s Pleasure Jam remains the same and we are looking forward to an action-packed contest!
For thirteen years, the European snowboard contest season is due to start with the annual Pleasure Jam. It’s the first tour stop of the World Snowboard Tour, as well as the QParks Snowboard Tour and thus enjoys a special status within the snowboarding scene. Last year, amongst others, Alexey Sobolev (RUS), Roope Tonteri (FIN) and Elena Könz (SUI) were the ones to ensure the action on the pro-kicker line of Superpark Dachstein and there’s no question that this year again world-renowned riders are going to fight for the sought-after podium.
While it’s a bummer that the 13th edition of the Pleasure Jam has been postponed, at least it means we might be able to go now! With flights available to Salzburg for mere pennies and the resort being an hour or so from the airport, it’s an easy weekend trip to make and with the value for money that Austria offers, it won’t break the bank.
