The first Snowpark Opening of the season is going down October 5-8th in Hintertux!

‘Time keeps on ticking, ticking into the future’. The days are drawing in and we’re getting closer to the start of the season. If you can’t wait until December or January to get shredding, then you need to head to the season opening glacier events that take place around Europe, and particularly in Austria. The first of the bunch is the Hintertux Opening, running from the 5-8th October in Hintertux.

Tried & tested: the Park Opening not only offers the first snowpark joys for real shredders but also an extensive board test, lots of side activities for grown ups and kids alike, and last but not least some wild parties. On top of all that, the Betterpark Hintertux is complemented with 12 brand new rails and wallrides! And for all those who can’t bear to wait for the Opening, a slimmed down but freshly shaped light version of Betterpark Hintertux is already open now…

The Aftershred in front of the Hohenhaus Tenne on the glacier parking lot on Saturday invites you to rock the Gorilla Pumptrack, play a Beer Pong Tournament by Jimmy‘s (IBK), get crafty in the Volcom CAP workshop, win great prizes in a game of Poker, Black Jack and Roulette or just hang out to the sound of the go-shred DJ with a snack from the go-shred BBQ.
