New Course in Bad Gastein
For Red Bull PlayStreets 2023, the 400-metre course through the centre of Bad Gastein, which is shaped by the Schneestern agency, has been completely redesigned. The course starts with a banger: the riders are pulled into the KIA Quarterpipe with the help of a winch, something that has rarely been done before in a slopestyle contest. The next highlight is the eight-metre-high Oakley Wallride. The Playground, a trampoline embedded in the snow, is another obstacle that has never before been integrated into competition in this way. The grand finale takes place at the Last Dance, a rail section that will be a challenge even for the best. From there, it’s off to the new finish arena in front of the Hotel Elisabethpark.
