Ästhetiker Winter MÄSH 2014 - CANCELLED

Mayrhofen, 10. January 2014: Three is the magic number?

Rather not! After all that had begun as perfect in 2013, will not find any sequel this year. External circumstances do not leave any other choice to the Ästhetiker, than to completely cancel the Winter MÄSH for 2014. This is a hard take, after the lengendary Wängl Tängl had celebrated its 10th Anniversary and last appearance on the international snowboard circus in 2012 with a bang. That does not mean that the Ästhetiker Crew surrender a short and easy battle. „We tried everything to make the event happen!“ sais Rudi Kroell, General Manager of the Ästhetiker association.“But the external circumstances were not matching and you have to realize when it it time to let go. We thank our partners for their support and especially Red Bull for their long-term and cross-project loyality.“


Instead of squandering all forces against Goliath, the snowboard crew is now focusing fully on the push of grassroots snowboarding. With the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY hosted by Ride Snowboards, the Ästhetiker are organizing a successful Amateur Contest Series with four tourstops in the holy valley this winter.


The weekly Shredschool Workshops at Zillertal Arena and in Nassfeld and Shred Däys at Hintertux Glacier focus on the promotion of young up-and-coming talents.


„Of course, we are trying to be out there on the mountain ourselves as much as we can,“ Snowboard legend and Ästhetiker president Steve Gruber laughs. „Snowboarding is our passion and that will never change. If the external conditions, location, partners etc. at some point but fit, there will certainly come up another great Ästhetiker Event! We will always have some great ideas in the bag to push the progression of snowboarding!“







Die Ästhetiker

German Version:

Mayrhofen, 10. Jänner 2014: Alle Guten Dinge sind drei?

Manchmal eher nicht! Denn was in 2013 so perfekt begonnen hatte, wird dieses Jahr leider keine Fortsetzung finden. Äußere Umstände lassen den Ästhetikern keine andere Wahl, als den Winter MÄSH für 2014 komplett abzusagen. Auch der legendäre Wängl Tängl feierte 2012 mit dem 10. Jahrestag seinen womöglich letzten Auftritt im internationalen Snowboard Zirkus. Das bedeutet nicht, dass sich die Ästhetiker nach kurzem Kampf so leicht geschlagen geben. „Wir haben bis zur letzten Minute alles in unserer Macht stehende versucht, um den Event zu realisieren,“ erklärt Rudi Kröll, Geschäftsführer des Ästhetiker Vereins. “Jedoch haben die äußeren Umstände einfach nicht gepasst. Man muss wissen, wann es an der Zeit ist, loszulassen. Wir bedanken uns bei unseren Partnen für ihre Unterstützung und vor allem bei Red Bull für die langjährige und projektübergreifende Treue.“


Anstatt weiterhin alle Kräfte gegen Goliath zu verpulvern, konzentriert sich der Verein nun voll auf die Förderung des regionalen und nationalen Snowboard Sports. Mit der Zillertal Välley Rälley hosted by Ride Snowboards organisieren die Ästhetiker diesen Winter erstmals eine erfolgreiche Amateur-Contest Serie mit vier Tourstops im Zillertal. Bei den wöchentlichen Shredschool Workshops in der Zillertal Arena und in Nassfeld sowie den Ästhetiker Shred Däys am Hintertuxer Gletscher stehen die Nachwuchsförderung und die Weitergabe von Tipps und Tricks an junge Talente im Vordergrund.


„Natürlich versuchen wir, selbst so oft wie möglich am Berg zu sein,“ lacht Steve Gruber, Präsident des Ästhetiker Vereins, „Snowboarden ist schließlich unsere Leidenschaft und das wird sich auch nie ändern. Sollten die äußeren Umstände, die Location und Partner dann irgendwann doch wieder passen, so wird es ganz bestimmt auch wieder einen großen Ästhetiker Event geben! An Ideen, die Progression des Snowboardens voranzutreiben, mangelt es uns ja nun wirklich nicht.“

Ästhetiker Winter MÄSH presented by G-Shock Saalbach Hinterglemm 13th – 15th Feb 2013

A Music, Art, Snowboard Happening... Continuing the Tradition of Team Based Snowboarding

The Ästhetiker, in conjunction with the Saalbach Hinterglemm Lift Company and Tourism Board, announce the signing of a partnership to realize a new winter season event for 2013. Presented by G-Shock, the Winter MÄSH is the latest creation by the Ästhetiker crew, renown for producing team based snowboarding contests fused with live music, interactive art elements combined to showcase the best in boardsports culture. With support from partners Vans, Red Bull and Fiat, the inaugural Winter MÄSH presented by G-Shock promises to be a highlight on this season’s winter calendar kicking off over the 13th – 15th of February 2013 in Saalbach Hinterglemm, SalzburgerLand, Austria.

The launch of the Winter MÄSH is a culmination of months of work, site checks and brainstorming over the summer. A long held Ästhetiker ambition has been to deliver their unique take on board sports happenings in an accessible, centralized, valley based venue.The Winter MÄSH concept, defined by an acronym from it’s elements of Music, Art and Snowboard Happening, unearthed the perfect event site and partner in Saalbach Hinterglemm. Plans for a new contest line in the existing, season long Nightpark at the base of the Unterschwarzach Bahn in Hinterglemm have already been drawn up. Two man teams will battle it out on a creative kicker and rail line ending in the Red Bull End Section at a head-to-head final in front of the main music stage.

Supported by daily sets from world class DJ’s, the snowboard finals will be followed by Live International headlining acts creating a climax to the three day ‘Contesti-val’ style celebration to this board culture jamboree. True to it’s name, the Winter MÄSH will rock Saalbach Hinterglemm from start to finish with daily (and nightly) highlights including the infamous Red Bull Brandwagen Street Party, live music acts, event village, ‘Ä-lternative’ Clubbing nights and an interactive Art Exhibition inspired by local talent and 20-years of Ästhetiker crew happenings.

The Winter MÄSH crew look forward to welcoming everyone to this next adventure and invites the whole boardsports family to come celebrate this veritable ‘mash up’ of all the best in Music, Art and Snowboarding at a once a year Happening in Saalbach Hinterglemm over the 13th – 15th of February 2013.
