Last Saturday, the last stop of the Wir Schanzen Tour, the Major Glacier, took place at the Snowpark Kaunertal. 121 riders from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Great Britain and the Czech Republic came to the Kaunertal Glacier to be part of the event.
There was a total price money of 2ooo Euros and tons of goodies up for grabs.
As a highlight, the champions of the whole Wir Schanzen Tour got crowned at the Major Glacier.
The riding level of the snowboarders and the freeskiers was very high. Freeskier Lukas Müllauer for example won the mens freeski category with a Double Cork 12 and snowboarder Maximilian Preissinger showed a FS and a BS 7 on the kicker.
