Dachstein Opening 2010

Let’s face it: The season is pretty much over. At least when judging from the majority of resorts that have closed down for summer and counting money… However, there’s hope for all who can’t get enough of the shred! On May 29, while everyone else has taken to riding their bikes and skateboards for a long time, true snowboarders meet on the Dachstein glacier and celebrate an endless winter in the Horsefeathers Superpark Dachstein!

No need to put your winter stuff up in the attic! Down in Styria/Austria the Dachstein glacier is a stronghold of winter, snow, and sick park features. Get ready for the Horsefeathers Superpark Dachstein Opening on May 29th 2010! Check out their little teaser to get a taste of what we are talking about:

And here’s some more information on why this glacier is the hottest thing since baseless bindings:

Since 2004 the Superpark is a QPark and thus member of the largest quality-network for freestyle snowparks in the Alps. Together with the long-term partners Blue Tomato, Adidas Eyewear and Horsefeathers, one of the best terrain-parks Europe has ever seen was realized. Last year, the Czech shooting-star fashion-brand Horsefeathers became the new title-sponsor of the Superpark Planai and soon after, also the cooperation between Dachstein and Horsefeathers reached the next level: Since mid-December the brand is also the main sponsor of the legendary Superpark Dachstein, now labeled Horsefeathers Superpark Dachstein! In great collaboration, the Schladming-Dachstein region has turned into a real freestyle paradise, with almost ten months of freestyle pleasure throughout the year!

Through its special location, the Dachstein glacier guarantees snow-fun also in the summer months and traditionally cuts in with the Horsefeathers Superpark Planai that closed its gates last weekend. As the easternmost glacier of the Alps but aligned north, the Dachstein stops all the clouds from pulling through and generates cool temperatures and heavy snowfalls. As a matter of fact it is one of the snow-richest glaciers in Europe and offers excellent conditions for winter sports over the whole year. Logically, QParks has established one of the greatest snowparks in Europe up there and so besides its blessed location, the professional know-how of the designers is responsible for the tremendous quality of the snowpark!

For the summer season, the setup will see another upgrade: Among many other surprises, a line of four rails will be placed – a unique gadget in the Alps! For the Opening, the Horsefeathers Superpark will wait for you in its whole setup which will be similar to last year. Instead of the corner, a brand-new medium boxes line will be waiting where everyone can master his/her sliding skills! Needless to say, on the May 29th, visitors can expect a loaded program and you can be sure that the sponsors Horsefeathers, Blue Tomato and Adidas will provide some high value goodies for you to take home! For all those who want to experience something special and re-think their concept of alpine Shredding: At the Dachstein Summer Opening 2010 freestyle stands in the foreground and all addicts will meet on top of the “Styrian rock” to live it up! So don’t miss it and be a part of the endless winter 2010!
