Huge kickers, massive tricks, nice atmosphere and easy riders, that is the 12th Sony Ericsson Snowboard Fest!
Ski resort Park Snow Donovaly experienced a great snowboard show. Fifty of the best riders from 9 different countries in Europe came to encourage 1,500 fans who have created an unforgettable atmosphere. They managed to arouse professional riders; they were shown the tricks, what we can see here in Slovakia only once a year and this is because of the biggest and best snowboard show – SONY ERICSSON SNOWBOARD FEST. The winner was 20 years old rider from Norway, Jorn Simen Aaboe.
Jorn Siemen Aaboe stole the show with the switch backside double cork 1080 mute nose bone and massive backside double backflip 180. Second came Slovenian rider Aljosa Krivec with the sweet frontside 10 indy and backside 1260 mute. Third rider was from Austria. Mario Wagner pulled frontside 10 melon and ended his show with the huge backside 7 double grab.
The biggest surprise and the greatest pleasure for me were, that finally, after more than six years of Sony Ericsson Snowboard Fest, rider from Slovakia, Matej Matys was in Final. He had a huge amount of competition and went to the end of his forces. Jozef Murín, the evaluation of the show its chief organizer said “I am very happy.

The 13th year of the biggest snowboard event in Slovakia will take place on 16.2.2013 in Strbske pleso in High Tatras! The reason for the change of event location is that new resort Inter SKI in Strbske Pleso in High Tatras offers the best conditions for building a huge jump that is the priority of the Snowboard Fest.
