The Family Freestyle Weekend started for the third time. On Friday, children from the elementary school in St. Johann im Pongau were trained in dry and balance exercises. The course, organized by ASA and Burton Riglet, was designed to prepare the kids for the upcoming exercises on the board.

On Saturday many kids appeared with their parents and grandparents on the mountain and signed up for the snowboard freestyle coaching offered by Blue Tomato in cooperation with the Shred School. The coaching team was supported by coaches of the Shred Kids. As a welcome gift - and a distinguishing feature - every child was given a Family Freestyle Neckwarmer.
Everyone got a big amount of goodies
While the kids were busy with the training, the adults could ride some laps themself or just enjoy the great weather. Brands like Atomic, Burton, Never Summer, Bataleon, Rome, Goodboards and Nitro were present and gave free material to be tested as rentals. Meanwhile in the Eventarea snowboard beginner courses were continued, and Riglet Mountain with 2 small funboxes was constantly under fire.
Therefore it didn't matter how much snowboarding experience you already had, this weekend it was guaranteed that everybody could discover something new.
Trainingsession with pros and coaches
Of course, the day was not over after the shredding. At the Barilla Pasta Party the hunger was satisfied and for all participants there was a full packed Blue Tomato Goodie Bag. The following children's bingo did not only please the kids but also the adults. Once you had reached a "BINGO" you could choose from great prizes.
This was followed by the most emotional and memorable moment of the weekend. Together with more than 80 kids, parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents, the group started from the Kreisten Alm to Alpendorf Ort. A breathtaking sunset enchanted the atmosphere.
Family Shred with Kids and Parents
The Sunday was just as adventurous. The day greeted all visitors with a Blue-Bird sky and the kids started their courses enthusiastically again. Some kids even shapeden their own kicker which were tested afterwards. In the afternoon they all drove down to the valley to experience another highlight. The bike professional Thomas Klausner showed young and old his show and amazed everyone without exception.
Reviewing the weekend, it was filled with lots of laughing children, great experiences, memories and many new friends. So maybe next year we can also welcome you to the Family Freestyle Weekend?
