The resort of Sierra Nevada, Spain host of the 2013 FIS Snowboard World Cup finals, the 2015 Universiade and the 2017 FIS Snowboard and Freestyle World Championships will extend its snow park Sulayr for the up-coming season. With 70 features, a halfpipe and a new beginners kids freestyle zone pushes Sierra Nevada into the spotlight for any budding or hardcore freestyler.
Wider and more accessible for all kinds of public and with a new sector, the new snow-park will provide good snow conditions for the jumps and obstacles, and still be the longest park in Europe.
Sulayr snow park is, since it’s was moved to the Dilar slope, an international reference and a decisive element in the reorganization of Sierra Nevada, that took place three seasons ago and has permuted a better distribution for skiers andsnowboarders for a skiing control of the resort.
In addition, a new sector will be added to the park which will give kids the chance to learn on smaller obstacles.
“The snow park has a special highlight in the progression level, so that each sector brings a new level of learning from the previous one. The snowboarders will be able to do their first jumps and tricks to the point of progression to the World Cup at a professional level,” said the course builders.
At the same time, the constructors are thinking of adding some additional freestyle area to the Loma de Dilar featuring a smaller fun park, a halfpipe with smaller dimensions as well as a snowboard cross slope.
