Have you ever heard of “Snow flossing”, “Snow surfing”, “Deep Snow Diving” or “Free-Ride Sweating?” I traveled to Zell Am See-Kaprun in Austria with Lea and Christine to find out what these new sports meant at the White Start Games 2012 . Believe it or not, some of them were exhausting.
Snow flossing meant to wear flippers and complete a parkour in the snow. Sounds easy but these flippers restrict your movement but it’s incredible how fast some people were. The highlight of this discipline were three guys from Salzburg who completed it in their shorts… brrr so cold!
Snow surfing meant snow tubing the hill in a sled. This also sounds easy but for somebody who normally crashes into the only tree on an empty hill it was pretty difficult. I survived though!
The Free-Ride Sweating was easy. We had to sit in a Sauna at 90 degrees Celsius and wear a think wholly hat, which made it a little bit hotter but we survived the 3 minutes we had to be in there.
Deep Snow Diving was easy again, simply had to race down the kids slide and swim a parkour in the kids pool.
Why I participated?
I wanted to win the beautiful Audi A1. Unfortunately, I wasn’t drawn into the finals. Christine was drawn into the finals but unfortunately only for one round since we both miscalculated the weight of a block of ice.
