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?
