Kaunertal Glacier Austria opens new Snowpark!
Fri 30 March 12
From April 14th to May 28th 2012 the traditional Spring Classics will go down on Kaunertal Glacier in Tyrol, Austria
As every year, the snowpark will be back in spring with numerous obstacles and lines, a great number of events and sessions - but this time in a new spot on Kaunertal Glacier.
Spring is here! The snow has started melting down from the hilltops and the valleys are getting covered with green pastures again. While the winter season is slowly drawing to a close in other resorts, the snowpark on Kaunertal Glacier gears up again, Traditionally, the Spring Classics 2012 will be kicking off at Snowpark Kaunertal on April 14th, giving all enthusiastic riders the opportunity to keep on riding six more weeks, enjoying the relaxed spring atmosphere and the huge snowpark setup with numerous obstacles until the 28th of May 2012.
New spot. New obstacles. All new snowpark.
The planning took quite a long time, but now it is done: Snowpark Kaunertal has moved to a new place in a different area with improved declension on Kaunertal Glacier. The new location is not too far away from the old spot and with this alignment, a completely new composition of obstacles and riding lines has become possible plus the number of obstacles per run has increased.
The tables of the two pro kicker line have already been prepared during the winter season. Now it is possible to combine the two new medium kickers in the same run with several bumps, some new rails and boxes and the two pro kickers for an amazingly long ride. The jib line consists of eleven obstacles that can be rode in one and the same run.
Loads of side events, sessions and shootings round out the Spring Sessions programme in 2012.
