The Spring Classics 2010 on the Kaunertal glacier officially started off with the welcome contest last Saturday, April 17th.

Hundreds of excited riders gathered on the Kaunertal glacier last weekend for the opening contest. With 180 cm of snow the park was in perfect shape and the contenders showed their best tricks on the various obstacles. Their efforts weren't only rewarded with great prizes but also blazing sun and blue bird skies – what's a better motivator for hitting the kicker double combo than this?


After a training session the snowboarders impressed the judges with FS 720s, Rodeos, Flips and all sorts of other tricks. Performing outstandingly all the long it was Helbock Joe and Susanne Bednarik, who grabbed the title of Spring Classics Masters this year.

This was only the beginning though, there's still a lot of goodness waiting to go down at the Spring Classics until the glacier will finally be closed in May:

- HOTZONE.TV Snowboard Pro Coaching with Tini Gruber, Lars Oesterle, Georg Huber and Thomas Tramnitz

- “Butter bei die Fische" Session: no matter if you show a cool trick, stylish landing or a freaky outfit at the glacier – our scouts will find you and reward you with cash

- soccer tournament in the valley

- Film & photo week
