The first park session of the season will go down in the Betterpark Hintertux from October 4 – 7, 2018 as the Park Opening will once again host a heap of activities to ring in the new winter…

Summer is in full swing right now, but fear not: next winter is getting closer every day. As it has done each autumn for the past 14 years, Better Hintertux (which is opening Mid-September) hosts the latest edition of the Park Opening on the first weekend of October.

You can count on the park conditions being first rate, and there will once again be the latest product available to test from the snowboard industry along with a bunch of on- and off-hill entertainmant.

Save the date in your calendar now: October 4th – 7th, 2018.

Park, Contest & Test

Betterpark Hintertux is known as the first glacier snow park to open each autumn welcoming riders from all over the world. This coming season the park will be celebrating its 15-year anniversary. Wille Kaufmann’s name is closely connected to the park, and again he is the mastermind tasked with creating the Betterpark playground. Riders can expect fun contests and sessions like the ‘Alarm Clock Battle’ with prize money up for grabs, as well as a ‘Who’s Who’ of the snowboard industry and the chance to shred with brand-new test gear.

The Park Opening Hintertux is a fun gathering of snowboard pros around Zillertal local Werni Stock, amateurs, snowboard fans as well as the youngest talents. Kids are definitely welcome to join and will be well looked after at the ‘Kids Shred’ with the Ästhetiker crew, who will coach them to master their first obstacles.

Parties & Side Events

As usual the weekend will offer plenty of good music and fun. It starts on Thursday night at the Kleine Tenne in Tux. On Friday snowboard movie fans will enjoy the ‘Video Night’ at the Tux-Center, followed by a party at the Kleine Tenne/Lanersbach.

On Saturday the Hohenhaus Tenne in Hintertux will be the center of attention. Before that everyone should visit the parking lot in Hintertux for the ‘After Shred Session’ with pumptrack.

Details and Updates for the Park Opening are available on, as well as on Facebook or Instagram. Rooms can be booked here:
