The contest in Gurgl takes place at "Hangerer", a mountain that resembles an awe-inspiring king with a majestic face. Not without reason, the "Hangerer" ranks among the most challenging faces of the entire scene. Also Manuela Mandl knows that, reigning Freeride World Tour World Champion, 3-times winner of the "Hangerer": "In Obergurgl-Hochgurgl there are some variants where I can really go to the limit and beyond, for example on the "Hangerer" face. At the same time, there are very lovely options close to the ski slopes within the area, which are really fun even in poor visibility. The choice of terrain is huge, the panorama a truly unique highlight. And even many days after the last fresh snow has fallen you can find untouched powder runs with a bit of muscle power."
