Kitzsteinhorn is ready to kick-start the freestyle season! On Saturday, October 19, 2013, Glacier Park will open presenting a small but varied set-up on 2,900 m sea level. At Salzburg County’s only glacier, two lines with kickers, rails, and boxes will provide some early-season freestyle fun. Only 3 weeks later, the first event will take place: it’s the Kitzsteinhorn Season Blast from November 1 to 3, 2013!

Kitzsteinhorn near Zell am See-Kaprun, Austria, got some heavy snow showers recently, enabling the snow park crew to prepare two varied lines at the Glacier Park. From October 19, the park will present an Easy Line and a Jib Line. The set-up will be extended in the following weeks. Easy Line includes an Easy Tube (4 m), Butter Box Straight (6 m), and kickers (2-4 m & 4-6 m). Jib Line consists of an Easy Tube (4 m), Industry Down (8 m), Down Flat Down (4/2/6 m), and Up Rail (7 m), as well as a creative special feature that will be modified every now and then. From December, Austria’s biggest super-pipe as well as Central Park and Easy Park with its new, more playful set-up will provide for even more fun in the snow.

From November 1 to 3, 2013, Kitzsteinhorn Season Blast will kick off the series of events at Kitzsteinhorn. Highlights of the 3-day session at Glacier Park are the Nitro Test Days, the Nitro & Volcom BBQ, the rail battles CASH FOR TRICKS hosted by Nitro Pro Dominik Wagner (presented by Base Camp Kaprun & La Resistance Zell am See) and BEAT THE BEAST hosted by Nitro Pro Marc Swoboda (presented by Intersport Bründl, Subway Snowboardshop Kaprun) as well as the KITZSTEINHORN SNAKEPIT. On November 2 and 3, 2013, additionally the Good Boards test centre will be available at Alpincenter.
