A one of a kind opening weekend just went down at snowpark Kaunertal! Bluebird, solid conditions, smiling faces and good vibes set the start to another great snowpark season.
The 32nd edition of one of Europe’s sickest snowpark openings, the Kaunertal Opening 2017
presented by Blue Tomato, opened their doors last weekend, 13th to 15th of October. This included a huge snowpark setup, heaps of side events, the Blue Tomato mega Testival and much more.
Snowpark Kaunertal was the place to be for the keen and eager snowpark folk. As one of the most prestigious openings with a place in many shredders hearts, this year’s version didn’t fail to hit the softspot of the shred community again. Every year the event gets a new twist and so it did this year. A new era of partying started with the After Ride Streetparty and the Club Circle, based in the heart of the village Feichten.
What went down on the mountain?
The weather couldn’t have been better. Sunshine throughout the whole weekend, a solid
snow coverage and a snowpark in all its beauty were provided in those three days of awesomeness. Given such lucky conditions, the snowpark crew was able to go above and beyond to create a setup never seen at the KTO.
In addition to the sweet setup of the Half Mile Jib Line 2.0, the longest one in Europe, a medium kicker line was built and fun obstacles put all over the slopes. The glacier and all
rideable terrain was transformed into one huge playground.
