The last stop of this winter’s QParks Tour is a premiere as well: The QParks Tour stops in Obergurgl for the first time. This means that for the first time, a tour stop takes place in a snowpark shaped by girls only. The Diamond Girls Crew has already finished setting up the contest line and polished the setup: “We are thrilled to see what the riders will get out of the contest line – and we’re really proud too that the tour finale goes down here in the first season of this snowpark!”
The Game of Diamonds is an invitational – that means registration is not possible. The riders that have scored enough QParks Tour points throughout the winter have qualified for the finale and will shred the slopestyle contest setup on April 15. The first hit on the contest line is a jib section consisting of a tube and rails, the second hit means airtime: Two kickers with 10m and 14m table lengths. The third hit will be another jump and the fourth hit is a jib section with lollipop and rainbow rail. However, you won’t just see calculated safety-runs in this finale – because there’s still a lot of potential for change in the overall ranking: Especially because scored points will be tripled! At this contest, wearing a helmet is obligatory!
Just like at every tour stop, points will be awarded in the categories men, women and groms. However, the scored points will be tripled – so expect a thrilling battle. Freeskiers can also push their rankings in the ÖSV- and TSV-ranking at this tour stop.
On April 15, the winners of the Game of Diamonds and the winners of the overall ranking of the QParks Tour 2018 will be announced. Besides awesome goodies from Planet Sports, Pinetime Clothing, Amplifi and QParks, there’s prize money of about 3.500€ waiting for the riders.
