World’s Largest Indoor Halfpipe to Open in Germany

Europe’s largest Snow Funpark in Wittenburg, Northern Germany will have a grand opening on 8th December. The indoor snow covered area measures 30,000 square metres and boasts 2 slopes at a gradient between 10% and 31%, a practice slope for beginners, a fun park for snowboarders and the only roofed halfpipe suitable for competitions in the world!

"When we started building this hall one of our objectives was to attract international events," says Snow Funpark owner Hans-Gerd Hanel. With a large event and restaurant area and our own hotel sleeping 256 guests we created the obligatory infrastructure. The Snow Funpark is much more than a ski hall. It is an event arena. In the future, we can host anything - seminars and conferences, product launches, concerts and, of course, sports events."

The opening party will kick off with a 40 minute laser, light and sound show while famous skiers, snowboarders, SMX free riders, paragliders and skidoo drivers will open the slopes with a firework of ski and snowboard jumps, stunts and tricks.
