On March 4, 2006, for the first time, the Nokia Snowboard FIS World Cup stage was installed in Saint Petersburg. More than 100 athletes from 17 countries took part in Big Air competitions. Especially for these competitions, JSA Stage Company installed a slide-ramp 30 meters high and 100 meters long on an open area near the Kirov Stadium. This kind of structure was built for the first time in the city on Neva. That was due to JSA’s good material base (Layher warehouse) and the experience gained at two events in 2002 and 2005 in Moscow. JSA was the only company that could cope with such a task at that time.
The ramp structure (trampoline) was mounted from universal elements of the Layher Allround Scaffolding System. To create the correct and safe slopes of the structure surface, the JSA team collaborated with Italian specialists experienced in this case. Therefore, the design of the slope track was made according to the FIS rules, the competition was successful, and the staff of JSA company received good skills for building the “Steel Mountains” for a snowboard.
A big show of athletes of this popular extreme sport was held for the audience (about 12,000) who came to Krestovsky Island to the stadium. It was accompanied by musical sets of the best DJs and sponsorship activities. The promoter of this unique event was SPN Ogilvy Agency (St. Petersburg).
JSA acted as a technical co-partner of these competitions, helping to promote such interesting huge open-air events in Russia.
