Benny Urban proudly introduces the Moon Park on the outskirts of Innsbruck, Austria
This is the story of Moon Park. A do-it-yourself snowboard spot in the european Alps.
A group of friends creating something that they felt was missing in Snowboarding. A place to play, be creative and progress with no rules and boundaries. Moon Park is the product of Benny Urban’s desire to bring a rail park to the Alps, something close to the city, where snowboarders can come together and ride for a few hours without having to make the journey to the mountain. A place to go to warm up before filming, a place for those who can´t afford a lift ticket for the day, to hang with friends in a “private environment”, and; really, just a place for snowboarding. Benny Urban has worked together with Nitro Snowboards, Vans, and others to bring this project to fruition. Step one is finally complete, the first features have been created, the park is open, and the introduction video is online. On the opening of his DIY snowboard spot, Benny Urban says “This fall has been unreal for me in terms of riding and happiness on my snowboard. And I think I speak for everyone involved. This place turned into something magical”.
