Only a few days to go till the KOT14 goes down! The final phase for last preparations for the 29th Kaunertal Opening has begun and so there are some news to be announced.
Though the weather doesn’t play into our hands as we hoped it will, the opening will be taking place as planed. Due to weather conditions the lifts will be limited to a special snowpark setup. This leads to fantastic packages for lift passes including the toll fare witch are available for 10 € per day for all three opening days.
Everyone who is looking forward to test the freshest gear of the upcoming season will find what he or she is looking for at the Mega Testival. The Testival provides is a wide variety of the latest skiing and snowboard equipment witch can be discovered and tested in a relaxed atmosphere at the Blue Tomato Testival including Chillout Area, DJ Sound and Living Room Snowboard Museum.
