BUILDING DREAMS

fields of work

Working on various Project over the years, I learnt that relationships with customers work best when the Traildesigners are fully involved in the Project from the very beginning. Developing a Concept and solid Planning are the most crucial Parts of a successful Project. In the construction phase the Designer is there to make sure the Visions and Ideas get to life and create a Trail with Charakter. 

Jumptrails - Flowlines - Singletrails - Pumptracks

Vision & conception

It all starts with a Vision. But from the first talks to creating plans, getting Permissions, finally start digging to the first ride is a long process that needs a lot of patience, persistence and endurance. We've all been there, and a helping hand from the beginning definitely helps.

MATTHIAS GARBER

Born in 1988, riding Bikes as long as I can remember. My love for Building evolved with my riding, always in need of bigger Jumps for more Airtime we also created bigger and better Jumps. Building and Riding always went Hand in Hand, it was just a natural thing for me to create stuff to ride Bikes, never thinking about it as a job by any means.

 

It took some time before I realised that it's possible to make a living out of "Trailbuilding" , anyhow I can feed of my experiences I made over the years scrambling through woods looking for Lines and Jumps and transfer and adapt my Knowledge to plan and build Mountainbike Trails for a wider Audience.

Grossarltal - Flowtrail rebuild 
Summer 2021

Another complete Flowtrail Re-Build. On this Trail the original Routing was not ideal, so it was mandatory to move a lot of Dirt on some spots to correct the Line and create a nice and flowy experience for the Riders. This Project was a collaboration with the BATT Crew

Bikepark Schladming/ Jumpline Project 2019

years in the Making, 2019 was finally the year to start building this massive Project. Designing this 3,5km long Jumpline was one of my biggest challenges to date, with lots of unknown factors and challenging terrain.

Bikepark Lienz/ Alban LakataTrail 2017

The Alban Lakata Trail is Bikepark Lienz first Trail, with more Trails planned for the Future. Realizing this Project was extremely challenging. Tight Corridors for Routing and a difficult situation with landowners made it very hard to build an easy-to-ride Trail for everyone.
