[Last season's tour was rad, and we're betting 2014's edition will be even sicker!]

QParks Snowboard Tour Stop, Merceds-Benz Snowpark Kitzbühel, Austria is coming up!

Yet again, the Sick Trick Open is joining forces with the unstoppable might of the

QParks Snowboard Tour to come together and make an event of epic proportions. On

trick"- get training and stomp the hell out of those inverts. The contest location is again on the

famous Kitzbühel “Hanglalm". The course will be a good mixture of kicker and jib elements – the
