For those who got up super early today saturday had a nice little present in place: fog and wind. The kids how partied last night and rocked up on the glacier around 11am however got greeted by sun and perfectly groomed slush, ready to get shredded. Oh what a bliss!
An initial screening of the booths displaying the product by all the important snowboard builders and designers available consequently set the timeframe for many of the snowboarders who were around. With pristine carving conditions and nice slushy jibs available test-boards went out in dozens and testers knuckled their homies while supposedly smiling under their balaclavas and what not sort of tube-scarf thingy.
While testers were lapping top to bottom runs core shredders like the Sane! Crew left their mark in the Betterpark Hintertux. Due to the changing light conditions next to the Olperer, the Pro Kicker Line was left untouched for most of the day. This however, lead into extensive trick battles on the medium line in the rail garden and on the camel-back section which was marking the closing meters of the full Betterpark run.
Grommets popped out their parental homes in bundles to take part in the GoPro Kids Shoot. I am positive the pics in this press-release will give you the best idea what to expect from this. The attending freestyle coaches - most of them founding members of the Ästhetiker crew - did their best to give the grommets an idea of how freestyle is done. This actually only started on the mountain and ended at the „After Shred Session At Hintertux Parking“ where Steve Gruber and Sani Alibabic lead a train of skatboarding kids through a pumptrack while mum and dad had a beer and a band from Allgäu was blues-rocking next to the Templeton booth. Nice!
