CATRINA Skills Park & Pumptrack
Improve your technique while having fun
In recent years, the mountains have been experiencing a golden age for summer sports and in particular with increasing development in the mountain bike market. Many more people decide to spend their free time in the mountains practicing sports related to bicycles. For this reason Catrina Experience wants to keep up with the times by offering sports activities and creating new facilities related to this world.
A pumptrack will be set up in the parking lot of the mountain railroads during the summer, and a skills park has been created near the resort.
The first one consists of a closed modular track with waves and parabolics in which the source of propulsion, as the word "Pump" says, consists in pushing. The origins of this discipline date back to the 70s, where tracks were dug into the ground and a kind of motocross was practiced with BMX. With the passing of time this sport has found its place in the MTB scene and was used as a training track for athletes. Today, with the construction of modular prefabricated tracks the Pumptrack can be customized for various levels of technique, so it has become a discipline dedicated to both, adults and young people.
The Catrina Skills Park instead consists of a series of "Dirt" tracks, which means dug into the ground, which simulate mini Short Tracks. There are four different tracks with different technical levels. You will find drops, parabolics, jumps, waves and even a spiral with a passage under the bridge. It is a multi-purpose structure, ideal for those who want to have fun without big technical limits and for those who want to advance their technical and training level. Every September the Nino's Bike Day's organize a MTB event in collaboration with Cornercard and Nino Schurter in which participants enjoy themselves with Nino to improve their training and have fun. One of the most popular activities are the workshops in the skills park.
One thing is guaranteed: if you try it, you don't want to stop.
