Shred Down Austrian Masters 2016! The Austria Cup Tour 2016, made up of 10 Stops, has been completed and now it's time for the finals – the Austrian Freestyle Snowboard Championships in Kühtai and Westendorf will go down over the next couple of weekends...

From 26 to 28 February, the Big Air and halfpipe competition will take place in the K-Park in Kühtai. All riders are motivated in the K-Park to try to snag the Austrian and German Halfpipe and Big Air master titles. This open contest promises to go off, because despite the difficult snow conditions, the impressive K-Park is in perfect shape!

This year, for the second time, the Austrian Freestyle Snowboard Championships will be held in conjunction with the Germans to make a double dose of German-speaking radness. Last year's halfpipe champion Conny Bleicher is set to defend her title, as is last year's halfpipe winner John Höpfl from Berchtesgaden.

After the final of the Super Grom Tour Tyrol 2016 last weekend in Mayrhofen's Vans Penken Park, the best junior riders have qualified for the SDAM 2016 Slopestyle. This killer grom contest will show what a high level of freestyle snowboarding skills the kids of today have.

From 4 to 6 March, the Slopestyle Contest will be held in the Boarders Playground in Westendorf, where the qualified riders of the Austria Cup Tour and the invited riders will be fighting for the title. Freestyle snowboarding at its highest level will be on display!

Plus in Innsbruck as well as Westendorf there will be after-event parties to celebrate the champions appropriately! In Innsbruck the Big Air winners will pop the corks at the first afterparty on February 26 at Club Aftershave! On February 27, the second afterparty will go off at the Projekt club, and everyone is invited!
