As spring is creeping up around the corner, and the days are getting longer. This is the time when many Freeski and Snowboard addicted ask themselves what should do now? Getting out the bike from the basement? NO, of course not – ´cause there is an option!
The Kaunertal Spring Classics providing the best conditions for the final weeks with rides & tricks!
Feeling the sun over 3000m and enjoying the pro-kickerline, superpipe (140m), easy-kickerline and jibpark is a perfect way of touching the snow before summer sets in….
The program of Spring Classics 08 is close-packed with side-events and parties and a lot of convenient packages. For more info click HERE.
The Kaunertal Spring Classics are a meeting point for the Snowboard as well as the Freeski scene. The glacier and the parks are in perfect condition, good snow for final powder runs and the valley is green and inviting.
The “Kaunertaler Gletscherbahnen” show the readiness to invest into big park shaping and servicing. Beside the kickerlines and jibparks this year´s highlight is the 140 m long superpipe!
At this time many Pro-Riders and Video-Production-Teams (like Pirate Movies) come up and rake in the final shots or film sequences for next years shred movies.Therefore there are 3 jam-session contests scheduled. One for Freeskiers (03.05.08), one for Snowboarders (17.05.08) and a special event and new adapted contest format! It´s called “Butter bei die Fische” (it means something like: balls to the wall!) – and gives every rider the chance to collect money straight after his ride! Every trick and performance delivers CASH! (24.05.08)
Needless to say the 6 weeks are accompanied by numerous side-events, parties and “dance-dance-dance” action! Spring Classics ask every soccer team manager to found a team and play the mixed “SC-Soccer Tournament” at Feichten (17.05.08). “Game of skate” is asking for style and coolness and everybody can show his surfing skills on a fixed-wave!
All events will, of course, be supported by good vibes and music from special dj’s and live acts on the mountain as well as in the bars!
