    ​Finished second pumptrack in Moscow

    Last fall we have in cooperation with our partners FK Ramps built the biggest asphalt pumptrack in Russia. It stretches on more than 5000m2 in Moscow Maryno district. Due to the good feedback from the users, more districts in Moscow and elsewhere in Russia started to look for such infrastructure. In the beginning of July, we have consequently finished with the construction of second asphalt pumptrack in Moscow in the area of ex Cherkizovo market. As the pumptrack is part of larger new sports park we had to wait with the finalization of landscaping works on other contractors.

    FIVE STEPS TO CHOSE THE RIGHT PUMP TRACK LOCATION

    Choosing the right location is one of the basic factors for a successful pump track placement. In addition to the well-designed and built pump track, the right location will also attract plenty of visitors and users.


    One of the advantages of pump tracks is that we can place them in the immediate vicinity of users, that is, in urban centers. Even if there is a lack of space in urban areas, such pump tracks can already be placed in areas with 300 m2 of surface, while their shape can be adapted to the shape of the selected area. Since these types of tracks also feature an attractive appearance, they can be placed on green areas, within sports parks, and in degraded areas.

    Bike Park Rules and Guidelines

    It took a while for the ski resorts to implement basic rules and guidelines for behaviour of skiers on the slopes.

    Snow Park maintenance and fresh snow

    Terrain park maintenance is unfortunately still the topic that does not get enough attention from the resort management. In a rush to develop a terrain park with minimum cost, resorts too often neglect the importance of regular and quality park maintenance. This is especially obvious in case of heavier snowfall, which can, in case of bad maintenance, have a great impact to the park performance until the end of the season.

    Skill levels in snow parks

    Terrain parks can be fun for riders with different skill levels as they can be comprised of lines of different difficulty. Diversification of lines provides better experience for the users as riders with different skill levels are separated which in turn also increases safety. Similar to the standards in alpine skiing, difficulty levels in terrain parks also vary from beginners to medium and expert or pro lines.

Apart from proper signage and trails divided according to difficulty level, riders should get the opportunity to get familiar with obstacles that they face on trails in a safer environment.
