First Five Teams Down and Announced for the Winter MÄSH
The 2-Man team snowboard action is guaranteed to get hot for the inaugural Ästhetiker Winter MÄSH presented by G-Shock in Saalbach Hinterglemm 13th - 15th February as the first teams for the main event are announced. Twelve invited teams will meet four qualified teams for the 16-team Head-to-Head night time finals in the new contest line in the Nightpark, Hinterglemm. In the new 2-man team format, rail wizardry will meet air time as the riders overall joint performance in the unique Team Judging system.
No strangers to team snowboard events, the 'Young Austrian Guns' of Team YMCA consisting of Mathias Weisenbacher and Clemens Schattschneider already look on paper look like an imposing force, but it would be a mistake to take anything for granted with other raging new comers in teams like The Collective boasting the impressive Max Buri(SUI) and indomitable Brage Richenberg(NOR).
Yet, as so often in team based events it may come down to the tactics, experience and determination that may win out over pure enthusiasm, where teams like The Homies consisting of Tonton Holland(SUI) and Jules Raymond(SUI), Team G-Cocks captained by Chris Kröll(AUT) with partner Mario Wanger(AUT), or ignore them at your peril, Team Absolut captained by the man himself, Herbie Thaler(AUT) and team mate, Michi Stanschitz(AUT).
Team YMCA - Mathias Weisenbacher(AUT) / Clemens Schattschneider(AUT)
The Collective - Max Buri(SUI) / Brage Richenberg(NOR)
The Homies - Tonton Holland(SUI) / Jules Reymond(SUI)
Team Absolut - Herbie Thaler(AUT) / Michi Stanschitz(AUT)

The second six Teams will be announced shortly, finishing up the twelve teams directly invited into the 16-Team Head-to-Head Knockout main event to meet four teams coming from qualification. Training for all riders starts on Wednesday the 13th of February, with the Qualifications starting on Thursday 14th of February where four teams will advance to meet the twelve invited teams in the night time, main event, first round before things start getting red hot for the Friday night Finals.
Interested parties who want to inscribe a Qualification Team, inscriptions are now open. A Maximum of 25 Qualification spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. The Qualification's are open to all riders provided their are two riders. All Woman's Teams, Mixed Gender Teams and/or Two Man teams are invited to inscribe.

Whiteout Golfing Bunker's Up! Tour 2013 - "BIG BÄSH at the WINTER MÄSH" Longest Drive Challenge presented by the Alpine Palace
In combination with Whiteout Publishing, who proudly create in their stable of magazines, Whiteout Snowboarding, Whiteout Skating, Twin Freeski and Whiteout Golfing and presented by the Alpine Palace 5-Star plus hotel, the Music, Art and Snowboard Happening meets Golf for the very first time! In a full golf simulator at the Alpine Palace, Riders, Media and Special Guests will get the chance to demonstrate their ability to whack-plastic with real clubs, real balls - on a cyber course. Called affectionately the "BIG BÄSH AT THE WINTER MÄSH"
The record on the Alpine Palace Golf simulator has been set at 310m, and already certain Ästhetiker Winter MÄSH staff have clocked up a 276m drive, setting the 'to beat' marker for the "Professional Athletes", Artists and Media who will descend on the event in Saalbach Hinterglemm over the 13 - 15th of February. With a weekend of wellness at the Alpine Palace as the main prize, complementary entry into the 10 Stop Whiteout Golfing Bunker's UP! Tour 2013 events in Switzerland this summer, Golfing product - and most importantly - the kudos factor and bragging rights to the biggest drive in snowboarding, there's a lot at stake.
For those more sensible, there will also be a 'Closest to the Pin' contest, and for those for whom whacking-plastic exceeds the basic motor-function and coordination skills needed simply to get it together... there is always the 'Best Dressed Award' that will be handed out for those who see the challenge in a fashion rather than physical sense.
The '"BIG BÄSH AT THE WINTER MÄSH" is the start of a packed afternoon working towards the Art Space Finissage at the Glemmart Workshop, Hinterglemm, directly in front of the Alpine Palace, where the Ästhetiker Winter MÄSH Trophies will be Unveiled, before moving up to the Nightpark for the finals of the Team Snowboard Contest, concluding in the 20-Years TEXTA free after contest concert.
