Penken Park is ready for the season

Ready for the Season
The first snow has fallen and our stoke levels rise. Why? In a few weeks, Penken Park opens its gates again and welcomes us to endless shred sessions. Read here what to expect this season and find out about this season’s events at Penken Park. By the way: this includes a rad European premiere!

A word in advance: Park Designer Norbert Benauer and Park Groomer Steff Morocutti are going to take care of Penken Park once again this season and they’ll make sure that you guys will find a park that is just right for your needs – playful and mad, with creative lines and monster jumps!

Penken Park Team
When planning the park, Norbert and Steff rely on the feedback of their mates from the Penken Park Team. The pros forward their wishes, hints and ideas out of the rider perspective to the playground’s masterminds. But who is part of the team? The consultants of freestyle are Werni Stock, Tom Tramnitz, Alex Walch, Mario Wanger und Simo Peltola.

As you know, you don’t only find a top-notch setup at Penken Park, but also first-class contests, coachings and sessions. If you’re in Mayrhofen throughout the entire season (what we highly recommend by the way) you can look forward especially to these event days! And if you’re still thinking about when to come to Zillertal, then we suggest the following dates.
