Snowboard and freeski contest, concerts and parties as well as the "Testival" with brandnew material for the 08/09 season are the basics of the wellknown opening. But also new ideas have been discussed and are now being realised.

Freeski and Snowboard Action

As every year everyone who is able to use one or two boards on his legs, is welcome to take part in a competition. The KTO Mini Shred Amateur Contest will take place on Sunday, October 19th and special prices and goodies are waiting for the winners!

Some „lucky bastards“ will also have the chance to compete against some wellknown names and pro riders on Saturday, October 18th at the BIG PARK Mini Shred Contest. Besides 10 invited riders (f/m) in both disciplines, rookies and „lucky bastards“ will be part of the starting field. If you don’t make it into the competition you still have the chance to see a high quality contest with some of your stars from the scene.

Party * Party * Party

Some wellknown names from the austrian and international music scene will guarantee two outstanding parties in the partytent in Feichten.

There will be TEXTA from Linz on stage, wellknown for their dialect raps and lot’s of energetic live shows. They will be supported by VIVA LA MUERTE and if a band deserves being called „local hero“ – it’s them! England will be represented by the punkrockers FAILSAFE from Manchester who will warm up the crowd for the headliner RUSSKAJA.

Sideevents

Four of the best known film production crews in the freeski and snowboard scene will travel to Kaunertal to present their hot, new material: Absinthe Films, Headbud, Matchstick Productions and Pirate Movie Productions.

Besides shredding and partying there will be lot’s more action to do at the 23rd Kaunertal Opening. No details at this point – just some keywords such as „filming“, „parcour“ and „ style“ should be remembered....
