Only 10 more days to go until the legendary season opening on October 16-18th
Less than two weeks to go until the season is started in the Kaunertal – some wellknown names have confirmed their attendance already. Besides: contests, park action, parties, concerts and some new and hot side events.
The KTO team is very proud to announce the appearance of freeski pro Henrik Harlaut from Sweden – one of the top riders worldwide at the moment Bene Mayr who took home two prices last year will be part of the contest of course as well as Patrick Hollaus who won the “austrian master” this season.
Of course some snowboard pro’s couldn’t resist the call of the Kaunertal Opening too: be aware of pirates – as Marco “Grilo” Grilic and some other crew members are gonna be around on the mountain and of course at the movie presentation of Jolly Roger on Saturday. Rail and jibb specialist Seppi Schoeller will make his way to Feichten from Vienna and the new Oakley team member Benny Wetscher leaves the Zillertal to take part. Additionally Stefan Falkeis and Gerome Matthieu and the ladies Conny Bleicher and Julia Baumgartner confirmed their attendance. No contest without contest addicts Seppe and Anthony Smits from Belgium.
