From May 2nd to 8th 2015 the Kaunertal belongs to Brits. One week full of common shredding, party, good mood and boardtesting on the glacier. The Whitelines Rail Jam and the event “Dragon presents Methodical Madness” will take place as highlights again.

 

03.05.2015 Whitelines Rail Jam
During the British spring break week the British press must not be missing. For that reason the boys and girls of Whitelines Magazine come to Kaunertal and rock the “Heavy Metal”. Everybody can join and rock the rails and boxes of the snowpark with the Brits.

 

04.05.2015 Dragon presents Methodical Madness
What is the sickest trick in snowboarding? The Method, for sure! After first edition last year the Fun-Contest takes place at the Spring Classics for the second time and promises – as the name already says – the Method-ical Madness. Goggle- and sunglasses producer Dragon invites to jump the snowpark corner and rewards the sickest Methods with likewise wicked prizes!


09.05.2015 GAME of go-shred

A session with a clear view for fun! Through the well-known game “rock, scissors, paper”, it will be decided, who is the first one to show a trick in the park. The other participants have to stick the same trick, otherwise they earn a letter from the word “shred”. The one person who still has letters left when everyone doesn’t is the winner. Go-Shred is an agency for arranging rides based in Germany. Their main goal is for their customers to travel cheap and environmentally aware.

15.05.2015 End of Tirol Snowcard
On May 15th, when the Tirol Snowcard unfortunatley loses validity, we have a special offer for you: All Tirol Snowcard owners can purchase a ticket for the last 16 days of the Spring Classics for just 16,- Euros.

Furthermore, there will be the „schneeverliebt Jib Sesssion“ on Saturday, where you can earn money for your tricks. Take part to make sure you win some cash and vouchers! On Sunday there will be a slopestyle contest where you can show off with your park skills. Everybody is welcome to join the event as well as the legendary party, which takes place Saturday night!

Freeride Testival 2015

After a spectacular start in the last winter season the FreerideTestival Kaunertal 2015 starts into the second round.
On March 14th and 15th the Kaunertal Glacier offers the opportunity to already test next years freeride equipment in perfect snow conditions.

The test itself is completely free and registration is not necessary. Each participant should bring an ID as a deposit for testing the gear.
Deck chairs, BBQ, good music and a great atmosphere make the weekend a “must-have event” for all freeriders.

A further highlight is the free freeride-shuttle powered by MERCEDES BENZ Retterwerk. They’re shuttling between the bus station “Fernergries“ and the valley station “Ochsenalmbahn”.
Therefore you can enjoy freeriding down the „Nörderberg“ without any stress. For further information check: www.freeride-testival.com

High 5 in Fendels

From now on it’s “High 5” in Fendels! Since last week the brand new Fun-Line is ready to ride in the family ski resort Fendels. The course with various step turns, some waves and the Fun-Line obstacles from Schneestern will attract all young snowboarders and skiers. Because where else is it allowed to throw snowballs on a target while shredding down the slope without getting into trouble but getting High 5 for it?

But the special obstacles with funny names like “The Smiley“, “The Bonk“, “The Bulls Eye” or “The High Five” do not only give a big smile to the youngest shredders, even older guests have lots of fun cruising down the Fun-Line. In addition there is also a Rainbow-Box and an Up-Down-Box for kids with 5 meters length each. Here all future-freestylers can practice their first tricks before they go to the big park on the Kaunertal Glacier.

And even all confessed snowboarders and freeskiers can learn something new: What about trying to jump all 4 different 180′s in one run on the wave track? Who is gonna take the challenge?
