30th Kaunertal Opening – Event Recap

Next to the young guns, legends from 30 years of KTO Pro Contest history were invited for the GoPro Legends Invitational Riders Session, and they brought style and vibes from back in the day at the Snowpark Kaunertal parquet last weekend.

Air & Style Winner Marco Grilc, Steve Gruber, Sani Alibabic, Tadej Valentan, Chris Kröll and Tom Eberharter put themselves out there and showed everyone what made them what they are today; legends.

The miniramp has been brought back to the glacier again for the first time in 15 years. A perfect transition from Skatepark to Snowpark built on 3000 meters above elevation.

The high level of this year’s riders’ field and their positive attitude formed a solid base for sick battles and fun sessions, which will definitely be remembered for a long time.

With regards to the Pro Contest: four time Kaunertal Opening winner Eric Beauchemin made it once more on top of the podium in the snowboard category. Followed by the 17-year old rookie Maximilian Preissinger in second, and his fellow-countryman Clemens Millauer, in third. Mary Luggen took first place in the snowboard category of the women.
