Ästhetiker Winter MÄSH presented by G-Shock
Announcing the Ästhetiker Winter MÄSH presented by G-Shock
Saalbach Hinterglemm, SalzburgerLand, Austria, 13th – 15th February 2013
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 decision to launch a new event was broken down by Steve Gruber, President of the Ästhetiker, who stated, “We were blown away by the potential of bringing all event elements together in one centralized, town based arena.” Going on to conclude, “The location alone was not the only factor taken into account. The motivation and vision from the Tourist Office, Lift Company and the Nightpark shaping crew in Saalbach Hinterglemm left us in no doubt that this place is going to rock!”
Kathrin Mitterer from the Bergbahnen Saalbach Hinterglemm summed up local anticipation, "We are delighted to announce the arrival of a world class snowboard event right here in Saalbach Hinterglemm, fixing another red-letter day on our event calendar.” She said, concluding “The Nightpark is the perfect venue for staging major events only minutes walking distance from the town centre. We are confident with the years of experience, between both the Ästhetiker and our team, this partnership will result in a highly successful joint venture.”
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.

Ä - Press Release for Wängl Tängl, Verein, etc.
******* For german press release (+pics) please download the ZIP-File HERE ******
8th November, Mayrhofen, Austria
The Ästhetikers announce a Break from the Wängl Tängl in 2013.
Following the highly successful 10th edition of the Vans Wängl Tängl presented by G-Shock in Mayrhofen, Austria, the Ästhetiker announce today that they are taking a break from producing the renown team based event. After restructuring as a Club over the summer, the Ästhetikers prepare to celebrate their 20th Anniversary as a highly visible crew on the European board sports landscape. The decision to take a break from the Wängl Tängl and the production of soft goods and snowboard line reflects a refocusing of their energy, opening the door to investigating new opportunities in 2013.
Over the past 20-years of agitation, the Ästhetiker crew have become infamous as board sports advocates throughout the Zillertal, Austria, Europe and half way across the globe. Formed in 1993 as a loosely affiliated, eclectic crew of snow, skate and surf protagonists, they formalized this movement as a company in 2000, going on to launch an Austrian event tour, Ästhetiker branded soft goods and a snowboard line. In 2002 they launched their flagship event, the Wängl Tängl in their home base of Mayrhofen, Austria. Fondly described as a ‘Contest-ival’, 2012 culminated in the event’s critically acclaimed 10th Anniversary, melding a unique combination of team snow, team skate, music and art elements into a week long, board culture jamboree.
Renown for producing progressive parks and creative events, the question of ‘where to from here’ was approached following the success of 2012. After resulting in the decision to take a break from the Wängl Tängl in 2013. “Obviously, nothing is ever perfect, but last season’s Wängl Tängl was about as close as you could hope to get.” said Steve Gruber, President of the Ästhetiker Club. “After 10-years of amazing co-operation with the Mayrhofner Bergbahnen and Tourismusverband Mayrhofen and our long term event partners, we felt we needed time to look at how we could step it up again to guarantee the next edition of the Wängl is kick arse, not an anti-climax. That’s not how we roll…” he concluded.
With the Ästhetiker Club based in Mayrhofen, the ongoing relationship with the area remains strong moving forward. “Following the 10-year co-operation on producing the Vans Wängl Tängl, we agreed on the concept of taking a creative break.” said Sarah Huber, Marketing Manager for the Mayrhofen Bergbahnen, “We are looking forward to a strong partnership and working with the Ästhetiker on developing progressive concepts and the next ‘big thing’ here in Mayrhofen. Until then, stay tuned.”
The Ästhetiker would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our long term partners, friends and supporters from Mayrhofen who have provided invaluable support in building the Wängl Tängl from it’s humble inception to one of the worlds premium team based events. We would also like to extend our gratitude to our long-term partners of Vans, Red Bull and ongoing partners G-Shock and Fiat for their continued support.
The Ästhetikers will shortly announce their plans for their 20th Anniversary in 2013 that will be focused on creating core credible, team-orientated event formats while investigating the development of platforms for youth development.

History of the Ästhetiker
Established in 1993, the Ästhetikers formed originally from a crew of friends who shared the lifestyle and common passion of board sports. In 2000, the Ästhetiker moved from a pure crew, forming a legal entity allowing it to develop event properties, launching its first Ästhetiker Tour across Austria the same year. Included in that Tour was the ‘Penken Trophy’ that grew into the world-renowned team event, the Wängl Tängl firmly establishing the Ästhetikers in their home base of Mayrhofen, Austria. The company went on to create widely distributed Ästhetiker soft goods and a quality snowboard line. In 2012, the company formation changed to a Club, discontinuing products while allowing the organization return to its main focus – creating core credible, board friendly events and happenings. The company is registered to Ästhetiker, Laubichl 124, Mayrhofen 6290, Austria, under the jurisdiction of Schwaz, Tirol.

Vans Wängl Tängl presented by G-Shock is done!
The weeklong Vans Wängl Tängl Presented By G-Shock Contest-ival in Mayrhofen, Austria showcased the highest level of snowboarding the event has ever seen, epic weather conditions, innovative skateboarding, nightly parties, live music and life-long memories for all who attended the 10th Anniversary of this rider driven event.
Snowboarders Eric Willett, Iouri Podladtchikov and Arthur Longo made the trek from the Winter X Games in Tignes to join the laid back vibe of the unique team-format Vans Wängl Tängl snow event and took a break from their rigorous schedules to ride the perfect conditions of the Vans Penken Park.
Peetu Piiroinen’s team topped the podium with a first place finish for the “Triple Cocks.”
Skaters mingled with musicians and snowboarders to check out the Pop-Up gallery hosted by Looking Sideways, which featured works from snowboarders and skateboarders Danny Wainwright, Blaise Rosenthal, Corey Smith, and French, Danny Larsen and others.
The highest level of skating went down on the Mega-Mini-Ramp with Jake Collins dominating a “Cash for Tricks” Best Trick contest. Day two of the skate event featured a knock-out style team format that awarded innovation and combo tricks. Nassim Guammaz and Daan Van Der Linden amazed the crowd with creative skating and split the prize money with the other stand out teams in the top 4 finals, which included Josh “Manhead” Young & Andy Scott, Martino Cattaneo & Kevin Blaser, and Micky Iglesias & Phil Zwijsen.
M.O.P and Roots Manuva brought their legitimate hip hop legacy to the streets of Mayrhofen and performed a free show for nearly 2000 fans in the Music Pavillion.
After a decade of staying true to the Ästhetiker and Off The Wall spirit, this event continues to be one of a kind, an event that creates memories and defies the boundaries of the typical contest. It’s rider-driven, for the riders, skaters, artists and musicians. It’s an event that no one wants to miss.

Vans Wängl Tängl 2012 Crew Final Snow Edit
The snow finals at the Vans Wängl Tängl Presented by G-Shock in Mayrhofen, Austria took riding with a crew to the next level as seasoned veterans edged out hungry up and comers to take home cash and glory. The Finns of team “Triple Cock” chose innovative lines and stomped their landings for first place at the 10th anniversary of this legendary snow event.
Out of the gate Janne Korpi, Peetu Piiroinen & Ville Uotila rapidly fired tricks with gunfire style 720’s over the first kicker. The crowd went crazy when Peetu popped a huge backside 1080 over the second kicker while Ville transferred backside 360 over Janne’s backflip 180. Down at the Red Bull End Section it got even wilder with Peetu’s switch front board to switch crippler in the pipe, Ville’s backside 180 transfer over the wallride and Janne brought it home with an Ally Oop Backside Rodeo.
Meanwhile, the sun was shining, the Vans Waffle Iron was hot and spectators lapped the park all day while watching the action from the chairlift.
The 2nd place team YMCA admittedly had the best team uniform and huge style. Local Austrian’s Mathias Weissenbacher, Clemens Schattschneider & Adrian Krainer kept riding the Vans Penken Park long after the contest was over – but during the event it was moves like a Switch Double Back Flip 180 by Clemens and back to back 1080’s from Mathias that won over the crowd. Mathias’ moves earned him the award for Most Impressive Rider of the Day.
“The Collective” Max Buri, Boris Bühler & Tor Lundström walked away with the 3rd place prize and Eric Willett, Arthur Longo, & Kalle Olsen from Team Off The Wall enjoyed the laid back contest vibe while jumping and spinning their way into 4th.
The Best Line of The Day went to Ville Uotila for his creative use of the course. His innovative approach to transfers, stomped frontside 360 bonk on the Fiat Up Box and a massive backside 180 over the wall ride were a pleasure to watch. Best Jib went to 4th place “Off The Wall” team members Arthur Longo and Kalle Ohlson for their miller flip high five.
