Hafjell is a popular name when it comes to winter sports. A Norwegian ski resort with Olympic tradition, it will be engraved on the memory of the younger generations of freestyle riders and skiers. Because of the X-Games, one of the most popular freestyle winter sports events, which was hosted there in March 2017. Together with its partners Schneestern (SST) and Snow Park Technologies (SPT), PistenBully as main supplier provided the right setting for this event.
Already in 2016, PistenBully was able to convince the Hafjell ski resort of the quality made in Laupheim. Three vehicles, one 600 Polar, one 600 Park and one 400 Park Pro have supported the Norwegian snow groomer drivers since February 2016. And due to the convincing quality provided by the red vehicles, Hafjell put its trust in PistenBully for the X-Games Norway as well. In February 2017, four PistenBully in special Park and Winch designs were delivered exclusively for the creation of the Big Air and Slopestyle Contests.
The right tools for the right workers
At this year's X-Games Aspen in January, PistenBully proved its worth in providing the right tools for a major event like X-Games Norway. The red vehicles groomed Big Air, Slopestyle and Superpipe at Buttermilk resort. To do so, not only the right tools but also the right workers were indispensable. That is why at X-Games Norway, the PistenBully vehicles were operated by two of the highly qualified partners cooperating with Kässbohrer when it comes to freestyle winter sports: Schneestern and Snow Park Technologies. The European market leader SST and the number one in North America SPT worked closely together at this major project. SPT took care of the design whilst SST was in charge of the creation of the legendary competition track.
PistenBully is proud to have laid the groundwork for one of the most popular freestyle winter sports events in cooperation with these two professional teams.
