Many things are changing, but the annual Hotzone.tv Park Opening in Hintertux remains a constant. Hintertux glacier invites to the first Park Opening of the winter from September 30th – October 3rd, 2021. It is the 17th edition of the event, traditionally kicking off the snowboard-season.
The Hotzone.tv Park Opening is a fixed date in the calendar of many pro snowboarders, industry-representatives, media, and snowboard-enthusiasts to start into the winter with like- minded people. The Opening offers something for everybody.
Obviously, it’s all about riding in the Betterpark Hintertux, as always built and maintained by Willle Kaufmann and his team (Betterparks company). This autumn Betterpark Hintertux is most likely again the first snow park in Europa to open in early September. The park itself is suitable for pro riders as well as freestyle beginners, as it offers various lines. During the Opening the park is the perfect playground to test the brand-new hardgoods from the snowboard-industry attending.
Heavy wind made it impossible to ride the park or run the Metal Battle Rail Contest hosted by SANE!Snowboarding on Friday and Saturday. For Sunday the weather didn’t really got better, but the jibbers decided to still hit the rails, which were built close by Tuxer Fernerhaus. Pro riders and amateurs were in good spirits and showed crazy tricks on these features despite most adverse conditions. The daring show of the rail specialists was the perfect end of this year’s Hotzone.tv Park Opening.
As two days of the Opening were literally blown away with the wind, Hintertux Glacier came up with a great opportunity for all snowboard enthusiasts to test the latest gear from snowboard brands and ride betterpark Hintertux from October 17th – 18th. A good reason for another trip to Hintertux – the best park and the best material ready for you to ride.
