Thule Polish Freeskiing Open 2015 driven by MINI, is not only one of the most exciting and positive winter sports events in Poland, but also one of the biggest and longest running freeskiing competition in Europe. This year it will take place on the Valentines’ weekend (13-14 of February) in Bialka Tatrzanska.
For 12 years it has been bringing together the best riders from all over the world. Each year their spectacular evolutions impress public gathered around the snowpark. Moreover, this is the event that helped to kick off the careers of many skiers who we saw during last year’s Olympic Games in Sochi in slopestyle and halfpipe.
„In mid February we will invite riders to Kotelnica Bialczanska resort for the first time. New location gives us an opportunity to build even more creative snowpark that will inspire riders to show some sick tricks. Fact that freeskiing is now a part of Olympic Games, brings new sponsors. With their help we hope to organize even more spectacular competition. This year we are full of new energy and hope to surprise riders and public in a positive way” says Andrzej Lesiewski, manager of the event.
During PFO you will take part in two competitions - Rexona Big Air and Rails. Especially the first one always brings plenty of action. You will get a chance to jump to 25m, and show some stylish flips and rotations.
Through few changes went also MINI Night Session. The night show with an energetic music and artificial lighting, prepared by Red Bull, always brings a lot of positive energy to the slope. For the best riders we have the biggest prize money in the history of the event! Also, the best riders from Poland will compete for a Polish Champion of Freeskiing title.
This year we have also a new titular sponsor – Thule.
