And that’s not all…

Outside the venue, you will be able to entertain yourself with all your favorite activities.
 
We are building the most creative rail set up in Denmark ever, where everyone who loves our sport can charge the rails or even try a box for the first time in their life.

Afterski - Mooserwirt-style

We know, that like at any other great day on the mountain, you will want to finish off with a real afterski-session.
 
Our setup in in Copenhagen is absolutely perfect, and in true afterski-sprit, we have designed a special authentic afterski tent and invited the best afterski DJ’s from the Alps.

Arena

The competition is taking place in the old shipyard inside the B&W Halls.

A 50 meters high scaffolding jump is build and 800 tons of snow is produced with pure clear water and nitrogen.

A 50 meters high jump is a pretty high jump. It is the same as 1,5 times the size of “Rundetårn” or the same as the peak of the famous Copenhagen Cathedral tower at “Vor Frue Cathedral”.

800 tons of snow is a lot. It measures the same as 5 full grown blue whales or 150 full grown elephants.

Outside the competition arena, you’ll find a variation of the best food trucks and restaurants from the food scene of Copenhagen.

Also, an 8 meters high creative rail is set up for everyone to try out. The ramp will also host the first real Scandinavian battle at “Copenhagen Street Fighter”, when Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark will be head to head for the Scandinavian honor and glory.

Pay attention

The following items are not allowed in the arena:

  • All forms of bottles
  • Alcohol
  • Especially flammable liquids or objects
  • Camping Equipment
  • Professional camera and video equipment
  • Animals
  • Food (baby food is allowed)

Remember that you will be able to buy all kinds of food and refreshments inside the arena.
