Kicker Session with Julian

"Sun, fresh snow and good vibes - There is no better way to end a season!"

Frau Holle surprised us again with some snow in March. Despite two warm weeks with 20 degrees, there was still a little snow left, so we had a good basis for a little kicker. Sun, fresh snow and good vibes - There is no better way to end a season!

Josenpark Hike Session Recap

"less snow doesnt mean less fun"

The slopestyle contest at Josenpark could not take place as usual this year due to lack of snow. Fortunately, there was still a bit of snow thanks to the snow guns. The team around Yannik Schyle was able to provide a small setup to hike, so that all participants had fun. With fine beats and a good beer, the runs of the participants could be followed from the chillarea or from the Josenalm.

Kandel King Recap

"Kandelking 2019. Snow. Sun. Beer. Currywurst. Good vibes. Lots of prizes. - Everything back to normal."

After either the weather or the snow situation didn't cooperate in the last years, this year there was the full load of sun and snow for the 51 participants of the Kandelking 2019. As always, all freestylers of the Black Forest met at the Kandelpark and spent a great session together with beats from Ruff-Song Movement and cool beer from Waldhaus. Headshaper Sebastian Salonen, lift operator Stefan Hermann and their crew built one of the most spectacular setups a ski resort of this size in the Black Forest has ever seen. We are talking about no less than a six kicker line, which provided plenty of airtime with tables up to 12 meters and two creative raillines.

Kandel King Recap

The Kandel King 2017 literally fell into the water due to lack of snow. Therefore, the joy was even greater in 2018 when the contest could take place again. As always, all freestylers of the Black Forest met in the Kandelpark and spent a great session together with beats from Ruff-Song Movement and cool beer from Waldhaus.

December 2017 - There is more snow on the Kandel than there has been in years. We took this chance to do some powdering on the Nordhang. And while the other snowparks in the Black Forest were still closed, the Kandelpark was the place to be with 13 freshly shaped obstacles!

"Bluebird, fresh snow, 13 obstacles - Christmas 2017 was a feast!"

Bluebird, fresh snow, 13 obstacles - Christmas 2017 was a feast! Of course I grabbed a few of the locals and did a few laps through the park. Due to the fresh snow of the past few days, even the Schwarzmooslift could be opened, which we naturally used for some powder turns.
