Alpenhotel Plaza... where the heart of the Dolomites beates!

Ski freestyle in Val Gardena at the foot of the impressive Dolomites

The elite of the today’s ski freestylers, the new schoolers, meets at the Laurin Park, one of the most beautiful snow parks in Italy

Who where the pioneers in Val Gardena? The Schenk family

Daddy Schenk and his brother were so called „Oldschoolers“30 years ago. 10 years ago then a new movement was born - the „Newschoolers“. What is the difference between these two styles? They look smilar but are two completely different disciplines. Freestylers of nowadays are cool and dress loose. Their sports determines their lifestyle. Their jumps and kicks up to 30m look great. These youngsters have fun together and are not in a competition against each other. They wish everyone could or should win a race. This is a noble attitude everyone could learn from. Daddy Schenk was good in the frontflip 30 years ago. All his 4 sons were inspired by him and now it is Christof who is the freestyle champion in the family and is in the A National Italian team. When you are in the Gardena Valley you can watch our freestylers in the ”Snowpark Plan de Gralba” and in the “Snowpark Laurin“ on the Alpe di Siusi.
