O’Neill Pleasure Jam powered by Opel
(TTR 4Star Event)
09th – 11th November 2012
The countdown is on…
Only a few weeks are still between us and the grand season opening at the Dachstein glacier. In a few days’ time, a great mix of international and national stars and newcomers will rock the Dachstein at the O’Neill Pleasure Jam powered by Opel. In addition to a superb starting grid, the side events will provide for massive off-contest action: party marathon from Thursday to Sunday, movie screenings, raffles, BBQs and much more – a spectacular event weekend is guaranteed!
All the big names in the international snowboard scene are invited to the 10th anniversary party. Among them is shooting star and defending champion Aimee Fuller. The charming Brit is highly motivated and really looking forward to the season opening:
“I love the O’Neill Pleasure Jam powered by Opel! It’s the first contest of the season, everyone has just come back from the summer break and is eager to get back on the board again. The atmosphere is incredible, the contest bursts with highly talented riders, the event crew does a great job and really knows how to throw sick parties! I’m really looking forward to the contest, to seeing many familiar faces and to turning in some nice runs with the girls in the park.”
Naturally, Aimee will do her best to defend her title: “I have one or another new trick up my sleeve. But I won’t give anything away yet. Guess you’ll have to come to the Jam and see for yourselves!”
We’re really curious which tricks Aimee will pull out that sleeve of hers. But one thing’s for sure, her competition is quite a challenge: Cheryl Maas (NED), Anna Gasser (AUT), Urska Pribosic (SLO), Anna Gyarmati (HUN) – to name but a few – will have a big say in the constellation of the winners’ podium. In the men’s category, world-class riders such as Eric Beauchemin (USA), Ville Uotilla (FIN), O’Neill team rider Evensen Fredrik (NOR), Jamie Nicholls (GBR), Mathias Weissenbacher (AUT), Marco Grilc (SLO) and Marc Swoboda (AUT) have already confirmed their participation. And there are still more to come!
PARTY AND SIDE EVENTS
An appropriate supporting program is, of course, also part of the game. The NITRO test booth in the chill area up on the Dachstein promises tons of action for all visitors. Over the whole weekend, from Friday to Sunday, you’ll have to chance test the brand-new equipment by NITRO.
In order for you to get cracking in the morning, the dudes from go-shred will be waiting for you at the Dachstein valley station with the recommended dose of coffee. After a strenuous day on the mountain, you’ll get the chance to beef up on a delicious “after-go-shred BBQ”.
For those of you who do want to enjoy the action on the mountain and party until the break of dawn, but who do not want to spend the night freezing in the back of the car, we have once again organized attractive Sleep&Ride Packages. These include lift tickets, lodging (with or without breakfast), entry fees to all parties and a special goodie package by Blue Tomato, O’Neill and Opel.
Speaking of party: Already on Thursday, the party program will be starting off with the “Blue Tomato Industry & Rider Welcome Party“ at the Blue Tomato Headquarters.
On Friday and Saturday, the Jam Bang Parties will be rocking the contests’ aftermath at the Planai Parkgarage! Friday’s party will feature acts like DJ TDK and Mundpropaganda and on Saturday, the Haptic Invaders and DJ BLAH will make sure that all party addicts will get their money’s worth! On top of that, you can look forward to 2 movie screenings at the Jam Bang Parties: on Friday, we’ll be screening the Vienna Love-Saga “LOVEOLUTION IV“, and Saturday will see the movie premier of Jeremy Jones’ „FURTHER“.
FM4 LIVE ON SITE
