La nieve llega a Barcelona





El 7 y 8 de noviembre el estadi Lluis Companys vivirá su mayor metamorfosis para convertirse en sede de Barcelona Snow Show, evento pionero en España que traerá a la ciudad a los mejores riders nacionales e internacionales de snowboard y esquí freestyle.
Barcelona Snow Show ofrecerá un espectáculo deportivo de primer nivel con la celebración de la LG Fis Snowboard World Cup Big Air y el International Freeski Big Air.
Para la ocasión se construirá un Big Air de 35 metros de altura, el mayor de Europa, y también habrá zona comercial y actividades complementarias para convertir Barcelona Snow Show en la gran fiesta de inauguración de la temporada de nieve.

Algo extraordinario sucederá este 2009 en Barcelona. La temporada de esquí se adelanta y tendrá un inicio espectacular. Inolvidable. Por primera vez la nieve llegará antes a Barcelona  que a las montañas. Será el 7 y 8 de noviembre, concretamente en el Estadi Olímpic Lluis Companys, que vivirá su mayor metamorfosis hasta la fecha para convertirse en la sede de la primera edición de Barcelona Snow Show, competición de snowboard y esquí freestyle en la modalidad de Big Air. Los mejores especialistas del mundo se citarán en el Estadi Olímpic para participar en la prueba de snowboard puntuable para la Copa del Mundo de la Federación Internacional de Esquí (FIS), la LG FIS Snowboard World Cup Big Air) y en el International Freeski Big Air.

Con este nuevo evento organizado por Seven Marketing que cuenta con el apoyo de Ajuntament de Barcelona, Turisme de Catalunya, Campionat del Món de Snowboard La Molina 2011, Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya,  Associació Catalana d’Estacions d’Esquí i de Muntanya (ACEM) y Federación Internacional de Esquí (FIS), Barcelona volverá a erigirse en capital del deporte con la organización de un evento pionero en España que cuenta con antecedentes como el Air&Style Münich (55.000 espectadores), el Big Air World Cup de Estocolmo (24.000 espectadores) o el X-Trail Jam Tokio (75.000 espectadores).  Barcelona Snow Show cuenta también con la colaboración del Consejo Superior de Deportes (CSD), Secretaria General de l’Esport (SGE), Real Federación Española de Deportes de Invierno (RFEDI) y Federació Catalana d’Esports d’Hivern (FCEH).




BIG AIR DE 35 METROS DE ALTURA, EL MAYOR DE EUROPA
A partir de la construcción modular de un trampolín de grandes dimensiones y utilizando los más avanzados sistemas de creación de nieve artificial, Barcelona Snow Show transportará a los espectadores a una estación de esquí en la misma montaña de Montjuïc, garantizando una experiencia única de la mano de los mejores riders nacionales e internacionales del momento.


El Big Air de Barcelona tendrá unas dimensiones de 35 metros de altura, convirtiéndose en la rampa más alta realizada en Europa para una prueba de la Copa del Mundo de Snowboard. Su diseño, especial para la competición de Big Air en Barcelona, así como su montaje será realizado por la empresa Nüssli, responsable de montajes en Copas del Mundo de Esquí, Juegos Olímpicos, Campeonatos de Fórmula 1 o la Expo de Zaragoza, entre otros proyectos. El montaje de esta espectacular estructura se realizará mediante el sistema portante CD, con vigas tridimensionales reforzadas de tubo de acero galvanizado y unidas longitudinalmente y transversalmente.


La gran cantidad de nieve artificial que precisará el Big Air se producirá mediante el sistema Polar Snow. Para su fabricación se combinan nitrógeno líquido, aire compromido y agua, lo que permite la producción de nieve a cualquier temperatura exterior.


GRAN FIESTA DE INAUGURACIÓN DE LA TEMPORADA DE NIEVE
Barcelona Snow Show promete un espectáculo deportivo de primer nivel y también quiere convertirse en la gran fiesta de inauguración de la temporada de nieve. Así, paralelamente a la competición Big Air y coincidiendo con el inicio de la temporada blanca, el Estadi Olímpic albergará también una amplia zona de expositores del sector de la nieve, desde tiendas a marcas, agencias de viajes, oficinas de turismo y diversos agentes de los deportes de invierno,  y organizará actividades paralelas abiertas al público.


7,5 millones de esquiadores en España y 2,2 en Catalunya en la temporada 2008-09
Barcelona Snow Show llega ocho meses después de que la campaña de esquí 2008-09 bajara el telón convertida en una temporada histórica, con más de seis meses de apertura continuada y un incremento del 27,5% en el número de visitantes, que hizo alcanzar la cifra récord de 7,5 millones de esquiadores en España, 2,2 de los cuales en Catalunya.


Se trata del mejor balance de temporada en las últimas décadas de un sector que ha vivido un incremento continuado sólo alterado por las malas condiciones meteorológicas en las temporadas 06-07 y 08-09 y que ha invertido en los últimos 10 años 700 millones de euros en la mejora y acondicionamiento de las estaciones de esquí. Según datos de la Asociación Turística de Estaciones de Esquí y Montaña (ATUDEM) la industria de las Estaciones de Esquí genera alrededor de 7.000 puestos de trabajo directos y cerca de 50.000 empleos indirectos en los valles en los que están ubicadas. Por otra parte, en Catalunya, según datos de la ACEM, las 16 estaciones de esquí (diez de alpino y seis de nórdico) realizaron la temporada pasada una inversión de 22 millones de euros y registraron la venta de un total de 2.213.481 forfets.


LOS JUEGOS OLIMPICOS DE VANCOUVER'10, A LA VUELTA DE LA ESQUINA
El Barcelona Snow Show llega en el mejor momento posible para todos los interesados por los deportes de nieve, ya que lo hace en vísperas de unos Juegos Olímpicos, los que el próximo febrero tendrán lugar en Vancouver (Canadá). El snowboard, deporte incluido en el calendario olímpico desde Nagano'98 y que estará representado en el estadio de Montjuïc por los mejores del circuito FIS, será una de las estrellas del programa canadiense.

Los surfers vivieron sus primeros Juegos en aquella cita de Japón, donde se dio paso al halfpipe y al eslalon gigante individual, reemplazado este último por el eslalon gigante paralelo en Salt Lake City'02. El último evento olímpico, el de Torino'06, sirvió para que se incorporase al programa el snowboard cross , una modalidad espectacular en la que cuatro corredores pelean codo a codo por ser el primero en cruzar la meta en diferentes series de eliminación. Barcelona Snow Show ofrecerá a los aficionados un 'big air', la modalidad más espectacular de las que integran el circuito FIS, pero muchos de sus practicantes combinan este tipo de acrobacia con las que exige el 'half pipe' y, por lo tanto, son candidatos a competir en Vancouver.

Y si esto es por lo que se refiere al snowboard, el esquí freestyle, el otro gran protagonista en Montjuïc, tendrá también su parcela destacada en Canadá, después de formar parte del calendario de unos Juegos de Invierno desde Albertville'92. En aquella primera ocasión fueron los 'moguls' los que se erigieron en disciplina olímpica, pero después legaron los saltos en Lillehammer'94 y, ahora, se sumará el ski cross, la modalidad sobre dos tablas del snowboard cross.

Barcelona Snow Show será por lo tanto el pistoletazo de salida de Vancouver'10, la cita más importante del año por lo que a deportes de nieve se refiere, que se prolongará durante dieciséis días: del 12 al 28 de febrero, a los que hay que sumar otros diez destinados a los Juegos Paralímpicos. Un total de 5.500 atletas competirán en Canadá, así como 1.350 paralímpicos, con representación de más de ochenta países en el primer caso y de cuarenta en el segundo. Los periodistas acreditados alcanzarán la cifra de 10.000 y se espera que más de 3.000 millones de personas sigan lo que sucede en Vancouver a través de la televisión.

Por último recordar que los Juegos del próximo año tienen también sus mascotas, en este caso tres: Quatchi, Miga and Sumi. Su trabajo empezará con el recorrido de la antorcha, aunque antes deberán estar atentos a lo que suceda en Barcelona.

BARCELONA, CAPITAL MUNDIAL DEL DEPORTE
Diecisiete años después el espíritu olímpico sigue impregnando el ADN de Barcelona, una ciudad que ha encontrado en el deporte a su mejor aliado para posicionarse en el mapa mundial.
Barcelona es la primera ciudad de Europa y la segunda del mundo (por detrás sólo de Denver) en número de abonados a equipamientos deportivos en relación al número de habitantes. Inolvidable fue la cita olímpica de 1992 e impresionante ha seguido siendo la apuesta por el deporte de esta ciudad que ha albergado desde finales de la Copa Davis, sin olvidar que es la única ciudad con sede fija de un GP de Formula 1 y del GP de Catalunya de Motociclismo. Hoy Barcelona mantiene su espíritu deportivo e innovador con eventos tan destacados y punteros como la Barcelona World Race, la regata por parejas que da la vuelta al mundo sin escalas o eventos pioneros como el Movistar Barcelona Extreme, la cita con los deportes extremos puntera en Europa que en sólo dos ediciones ha congregado a más de 70.000 espectadores en el Parc del Fòrum de Barcelona.
Barcelona, que sigue ostentando el récord Guiness de participación en una carrera popular con los 109.457 participantes que tomaron la salida en la Cursa de El Corte Inglés en 1992, ha batido récord de participación también en La Marató de Barcelona y este año ha conseguido albergar con gran éxito de público dos etapas del Tour de Francia 2009 y una prueba del circuito mundial de voley playa, el Hyundai Open Barcelona que se celebró a principios de septiembre en una ubicación espectacular como es la Font Màgica de Montjuïc. Fiel a su espíritu inquieto e innovador, Barcelona ha visto como la playa subía a Montjuïc y el mar inundaba el Sant Jordi gracias a un evento tan espectacular como el windsurf indoor que hace ahora doce años llenó las gradas e hizo volar a los participantes gracias a 30 ventiladores gigantes de 3.000 kw. de potencia que fabricaron vientos de hasta 60 Km/hora.

The World Quarter Pipe Championships

A Celebration of Transition and Fire

Since the late 90s, before the complete redesign and deconstruction of snowboard contests according the needs of TV and the interests of the large corporate sponsors footing the bill, a “world-class” event was created by a couple magazine editors at Waterville Valley in New Hampshire that would forever change snowboarding. On what was probably a gray spring day in March, 1998, the World Quarterpipe Championships were born.

Over the years, snowmobiles have been stolen from ski patrol, inflatable pools have been ridden on the hill, board bags full of beer have been dragged up the mountain, Ross Power’s Olympic-winning board has been thrown on the fire, hotels have evicted everyone associated with the event, and “contestants” have been pelted with snow and ice as they jump a bonfire on the run-in. It was, and still is, a lawless event run by snowboarders for snowboarders. After a three-year hiatus, the gauntlet fire was re-ignited last March at Tim and Chris Waker’s Timber Ridge for some much-needed celebration of snowboarding.

Once again, 2009 will see the World Quarters back at Timber Ridge, the lawless private resort owned and operated by the Wakers. With the support of the Rome SDS, Red Bull, Oakley, Iceberg and co-founder Pat Bridges, the stage is set for a new rider to be added to the list of legends that have held the title of the best Quarterpipe Rider in the world.

The World Quarters an event that defines the word “open”: any rider, international pro or random kid from Jersey, is free to drop in and compete. There are no VIP tents, no media credentials, no invitation lists and no bag searches to worry about. The mayhem is set to unfold on Monday March 23rd at Timber Ridge. Will Kevin Casillo or Shane Flood make an appearance to try to reclaim their fame of years past? Will the Magic Mountain Motel allow us back as patrons? We’ll see.

  • Who: International pros, local shreds, vagrants
  • What: Quarterpipe, The Gauntlet, Mini Shred, Pat Bridges Handplants, Snowmobiles, Party, After-party
  • Where: Timber Ridge Private Resort on the backside of Magic Mountain in Londonderry, VT
  • When: Monday March 23rd 2009 – All day
  • Why: For fun.
  • How: Free bus shuttle from Magic Mountain parking lot.

Burton Rail Session, фън-парк Ариана

Не се отпускайте по празниците, или поне не много, защото веднага след тях на 5-ти март ще се проведе Burton Rail Session, който ще разлюлее София като третомартенска заря!

За никого не е тайна, че фън парк Ариана е изключително сериозен фактор за развитието на родната фрийстайл сцена през този сезон. За нас изразът “парк в центъра на София” се превърна в клише, а в същото време безброй много държави с традиции в зимните спортове и по-специално в сноуборда не могат да се похвалят с подобно място. Не е тайна, че и от Burton Snowboards подкрепят проекта от самото му начало.

И така, още веднъж Burton Snowboards и фън-парк Ариана обединяват сили и на 5-ти март на гореспоменатата локация ще се състои Burton Rail Session, чиято цел е хем да събере всички най-добри фристайл райдери, които да се борят за наградения фонд от 1000 лв и предметни награди, хем да достави удоволствие на зрителите – дошли специално за събитието или случайно минаващи покрай централната локация.

Записването за участие ще започва от (27-ми февруари) на www.whiteroom.info, откъдето ще може да изтеглите нужните за целта документи, а цялата процедура ще улесни, както вас, така и организаторите от Burton Snowboards и Flip Mode. Няма такса за участие, а попълнените документи изпращайте на sasho@energytrade.org.


Ето и програмата на Burton Rail Session:

12:00-14:00 Регистрация (за тези, които не са успяли да направят това предварително)

14:00-16:00 Тренировка

16:00-17:30 Квалификации

18:00-20:00 Джем сесия

20:30 Награждаване

Изисквания към участниците:

- Попълнени декларация и формуляр (можете да ги изтеглите от тук или да ги получите на място при записване)

- Пълномощно, подписано от родител или настойник (за участниците под 18 г.)

- Състезателна застраховка

- Каска и гръбен протектор през цялото време на тренировките и финалите!

Наградите ще са в следните категории:

I-ва награда – за цялостно представяне (най-добър райдър)

II-ра награда – най-добър трик

III-та награда – young blood

The Oakley Arctic Challenge is owned by the legendary snowboarder Terje Haakonsen. Having developed and invested in The Oakley Arctic Challenge, Terje fullfils the childhood dream of all snowboarders and paves the way for the upcoming talents and progression of the sport.
The event protects some key values; independence, creativity, progression, borderless, playfulness, social and environmental responsibilities.

The first full on competition was held in 2000 in the North of Norway, since then it has gathered the best snowboarders on the planet to come together for this very special event. It has also seen global TV and media coverage explode (TV distribution to more approx 200 countries), there are over 100 journalists and photographers on site every year and the event gets more than 300 news stories in Norway alone annually . TV-channels as BBC, Nippon TV, MTV, Eurosport, CNN and Fox Sports have visited and/or covered the event.

The Arctic Challenge was ranked as the best snowboard event in the world in Onboard Magazine's reader poll 2004 and got highest score in the TTR World Tour rider survey in 2008 together with German event Air&Style.

Oakley has backed the event since 1999, and have stepped up their commitment by becoming the title sponsor from 2007. In 2008 they entered a 3 year agreement with TAC; backing their plans to expand with more competition formats.
The 2009 event will take place in Linderudkollen, Oslo. Be there!
