The pro kicker line (2 x 15 m kicker), the medium kicker line (10 m and 8 m kicker) and the corner have already been shaped! Today five more boxes were installed. Shapers are still working on the superpipe and are just about to finish! It seems that we will have a perfect start into this season at the Park Opening.

The firms Apo, Ästhetiker, Bataleon, Burton, DC, Fanatic, Forum, Gnu, K2, Lib Tech, Nitro, Oakley, Ride, Rome, Salomon, Stepchild, Slytech, Technine and Völkl will have stands where you can test the new snowboard material. Rental will be for free but bring a valid ID. Furthermore the Absinthe Pro-Riders Wolle Nyvelt (AUT) and Marco Feichtner (AUT) will be present and last years „Rider of the Day“ Michael Ligocki (POL) as well as Claudia Fliri (AUT), Chris “CK" Kröll (AUT) and the entire Team will be expected.

We recommend to spend the night in Tux but if you have a place to stay somewhere else between Mayrhofen and Tux it will be no problem to visit the „Almrausch and Shred Movies“ Party in Hintertux with the Nightliner Bus for 1 Euro. Find the bus schedule and further information about the Opening at

Expect perfect conditions for the first Park Opening of the year and now it is up to you and your friends to join in!
