January 9, 2005 on the territory of the All-Russian Exhibition Center (in Soviet times it was a name – VDNH) in Moscow the World Cup in snowboarding took place. Especially for this event, JSA installed a ramp slope design (springboard) of elements by Layher Allround Scaffolding System. This was the second experience of the JSA team in the construction of such structures in Russia. Prior to that, JSA installed a temporary ramp-slide structure for the first time in the country in 2002 on Vorobyovy Gory – NOKIA TOTALLY BOARD / BIG AIR 2002
The Steel Mountain weighing 120 tons was built on the central entrance alley of the exhibition center. The height of the launch pad is 30 meters, the length is about 80 meters, the braking zone is 20 meters. At that time, such a structure could only be built by JSA, which had a large warehouse of necessary structures and was a sales partner for the products of the Layher plant in Russia.
Unfortunately the weather was warm and there was little snow. It was necessary to cover the track with snow cover sufficient for the competition. The promoter and managers from JSA found a solution for this task. As a result, everything went well – the athletes gave a good performance, and fans of this extreme sport enjoyed this unusual and exciting show in the city.
Special thanks to Dmitry Khazhainov for his work as a moderator between JSA and the customer of this event.
JSA has issued a special promo flyer (in Russian) about this event:
