Blimey, its only a month until Kaunertal’s Spring Classics gets underway. The weather has been a bit menstrual these last few weeks, chopping and changing it’s mind as and when it fancies and there’s just no reasoning with it. By mid February we were rolling around with half a tan on our faces and skipping through puddles on the way home from the hill, and now that it’s march we’re back to extra layers and down jackets. Huh, whatsupwiththat? If it weren’t for the afternoons getting longer, anyone could forgive us for wondering had we accidentally skipped a page on our calendars. And then along comes good old Kaunertal to remind us that spring first brings slushy park laps and before anyone worries about the end. Fear not, you gloves will soon have that familiar suncreamy barbecue stench we all know and love, until it festers in your board bag all summer long and won’t wash out in October. Here’s what Kaunertal’s got in store this time around:
From 13 April to 20 May 2013 the Snowpark Kaunertal opens its doors for the Spring Classics 2013. Over this period of five weeks the Spring Classics offer a top snow park and various funny events. Better be there!
You are up for varied creative lines, smooth obstacle landings and lots of sunshine? The Spring Classics are just around the corner. From 13 April 2013 to Whitmonday 20 May 2013 it is going to be a wild one at the Kaunertal Glacier. The snow park still offers a two pro kicker line, two medium kickers and 21 jib obstacles in total. Over five weeks the crew daily shapes and regularly rebuilds the park setup. Brand new at the Snowpark Kaunertal – from now on the whole park area owns free WiFi.
