Updates from the Super Rooster – Ideal Conditions for Season Opening in Hintertux!
For a long time, Super Rooster’s shred buddies have eagerly awaited the first weekend of October. Are you also ready for snow? Currently, conditions are looking ideal for the season’s first park opening on the Hintertux Glacier! Read on for the updated program and a park update.
First things first, the park: Super rooster has interviewed Betterpark head shaper Wille Kaufmann. Wille is positive that the snow and park conditions will be spot on: “The park did not really get its wings clipped over summer – to put it in Super Roosters words. Furthermore, we are getting a lot of support from above as in heavy snowfalls. This means we have enough building material for the park. As of September 16th the jib line, the easy line and the medium line are finished. We are currently working on the pro line. If everything goes according to plan it will be open the week before the opening. We also ordered a bunch of new obstacles from IOU Snow, which will be delivered in time for the opening. Shredheadz, you’re in for a surprise!”
The current situation regarding side events is promising, too: On the mountain, the adidas Jersey Jam will go down for the first time. The pro and am contest takes place daily at 1.30pm on various jersey barriers. A must for all jibbers! The hotzone.tv online shop as well as Pleasure will take care of the groms. On Sunday, they are invited to take part in the “Kids Shooting.” Eligible are all kids that have pre-registered on the opening website and bring the waiver signed by their parents. The by now legendary “Session of the Dudes” will take place on Saturday at 11am on the pro line. It is open for both pros and ams. Neither the session nor the adidas Jersey Jam require registration.
On Saturday afternoon the glacier parking lot offers loads of activities for all action enthusiasts: The well-known Original Big Bag Jump gives you the chance to show spectacular tricks off the six-meter-high crane.
All new is the activity offered by shapersblog.com: In conjunction with G-Ramps they will build a skate mini ramp for the after shred session. You can also test ViewDoo balance boards and take part in many more activities and attractions to pass the time until the night events.
Speaking of night events: There are some updates, too: German shredders are well advised to come to Hintertux a day early, on 3 October, as it is a public holiday in Germany. That’s why the pre party action will kick off on Thursday with the Apres Shred for Snowboarders in the Hohenhaus Tenne. Things continue at the Tux1 in Hintertux – Opening veteran DJ NLP from Straubing/Germany will host both events. On Friday the official Opening night program will kick off: The new Pirates movie “Distorted Reality” will be shown. The entire Pirates crew will be present at the Tux Center. Afterwards things continue either at the Pirates Party at Gletscherspalte or the Shred Warm Up Party at Kleine Tenne. On Friday, all parties take place in Tux/Lanersbach.
On Saturday, as usual the party will go down in Hintertux at the Hohenhaus Tenne. The DJ lineup promises yet another banging Analog Opening Night: Stereo Tam Tam and Smash Hifi will come all the way from London! The Wax Wreckaz will send DJ Juwee and DJ Fu and the Hotzone youngsters DJ team “Smoking Fingaz” will spin some tunes as well. Make sure to get your party ticket as soon as possible: Book it either on opening.hotzone.tv or buy it in one of the Hotzone shops in Mayrhofen, Schwaz or Gerlos. A small allotment of tickets will also be available at the Hotzone booth in the test area.
And there are also some news regarding the test area: adidas Snowboarding will play the tunes in the DJ Lounge, and no others than DJ BRX and his buddy DJ Muh will take care of the sound on the mountain. You can test equipment from the following brands: adidas Snowboarding, Apo, Arbor, Bataleon, Burton, Capita, DC, Deeluxe, Dragon, Flux, Gnu, Jones, K2 Snowboarding, Lib Tech, Lobster, Never Summer, Nike, Oakley, Ride Snowboards, Roxy, Salomon, Shred, Silbaerg, Slash by Gigi, Slytech, SP United, Split Hike Ride, Switchback, thirtytwo, Union, Yes.
