On March 19, 2016 the GummiLove Banked Slalom on Mt. Stoos went back to the roots, with a competition in the original snowboard discipline. Though a friendly coming together of the snowboard scene, rather than competition, was at the forefront, the participants delivered a fantastic head to head race. 91 participants made their way to Mt. Stoos, in central Switzerland, to take part.
Though the majority of participants were locals, many others from other areas of Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Canada, and Finland were also present. The atmosphere on the Klingenstock couldn’t have been better. The boarders and spectators were greeted with perfect weather, cold drinks and good food while enjoying this unique spectacle of snowboarding. The hard work and preparation of Stoos, Shredisfaction Snowpark, We are Zrcl and the 3sixty shop Schwyz was worth it. A perfect course was made, and despite a few technical challenges, the event went off without a hitch.
Daniel „Gummi“ Rietmann from GummiLove, who brought this event to his home mountain, was very pleased with numerous positive feedbacks and commented “As the ﬁrst GummiLove Banked Slalom it was a very successful event exceeding my expectations. A great team with a strong passion for snowboarding contributed signiﬁcantly to the event. I look forward to next year.” After a great run and overall victory Kilian Wiget, from the Canton Schwyz, has something to celebrate. Kilian, competing in the category Men over 30 was followed by Nicholas Wolken (2nd place) and Daniel „Gummi“ Rietmann (3rd place).
In the Men’s Open category Roger Schuler, from Wädenswil, took ﬁrst while Nadja Purtschert, from Ibach, triumphed in the Women’s Open category. In the Juniors Julian Furrer, from Ebertswil, can be pleased with his victory. At the after party, in Gaswerk Seewen, the celebration continued and the dance ﬂoor shook with the beats of the Goldﬁnger Brothers and Dj Set Hibou.
