WINTER HERE WE GO! WITH THE 33rd VERSION OF THE LEGENDARY KTO ALL SNOWBOARDERS AND FREESKIERS ARE CELEBRATING THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW SEASON. THIS YEAR WITH A VERY SPECIAL HIGHLIGHT -> A COMPLETELY NEW SNOWPARK!
The Kaunertal Opening is the place to be to start into a new Snowpark Season. After 33 years of event history it’s for sure the most renowned of it’s kind and brings the local and international snowboard and freeski scene together for this weekend full of shredding, fun, good times, contests, sessions, a sick park setup and not to forget: Legendary party nights!
Keep yourself updated and bring all your friends!
This year we’re not only celebrating the new season, we will also open up a completely NEW SNOWPARK – if that’s no reason to celebrate?! You can stay excited for your longest run which leads you from the top of Karlsjochbahn through different sections like the new „Nature Run“, the new adapted „Half Mile Jib Line 3.0.“ and more back to the gondola right next to the KTO Event Area! The new Park will offer endless possibilities with a mixture of creative snow and nature features, jibs and jumps for all riding levels!
The hottest brands of the freeski- and snowboard scene will be gathered at the Blue Tomato Mega Testival. On all three opening days they offer their latest gear of the upcoming season 2018/19 for free testing.
