On February 9, 2008, on the Vorob’yovy Gory (Sparrow Hills), for the second year in a row, the stage of the NOKIA Snowboard World Cup was held in the most spectacular competition – Big Air. On March 1, was held the stage of the World Cup in ski freestyle (ski acrobatics). It was for the first time not in a famous mountainous place, but in the city of a megalopolis.
For these events, JSA installed a unique temporary ramp structure in one of the most famous places in Moscow in front of the main building of Moscow State University. The large “Iron Mountain” was mounted from Layher Allround Scaffolding System. That became the largest ramp in the history of such competitions: total height – 50 m, the height of start area – 46 m, length – 170 m, width – 22 m. The installation work started in December 2007 to finish it on time.
Besides the fact that the Nokia Soundboard World Cup in Moscow was not only an important event in the world snowboard, it was also a great light show with fireworks and a concert of popular musicians for fans of this extremal sport.
In this case, the promoter of these two “extremal” events, the New League agency took the award by Book of Russia Record in the category “The highest construction of ramp (trampoline) for Freestyle”.
