On Thursday evening Franki, Jürgen, Alex, Lukas and me started our trip to the Hintertux Opening. Franki got some sweet apartment for us in Zell am Ziller. Props to Franki, the flat was amazing! Friday morning we headed towards Hintertux. First it seemed to be real foggy however on the glacier weather was ok. In the morning it was super icy but thanks to the sun and temperatures about 6°C it got slushy at noontime. The park offered a medium and pro kickerline, pipe, corner and a jib line consisting of a downbox, downrail, rainbow box, flat box, up box, curved box and pyramid box. You see there was something to shred for everybody.
Additionally you had the chance to test some new shredsticks of the upcoming season. E.g. there was Rome, Forum, Burton, Lib Tech, Nitro, Ride, Bataleon and many more. On Saturday and Sunday weather was great, there was not a cloud in the sky. It just felt a little like being on summer shred and especially at the corner some nice sessions were going on. At Saturday evening we went to the official Opening Party, was cool but a little overcrowded. Anyway Alex found out that the garbage bags were real comfortable… at least he claims that. Sunday morning we took the gondola to the glacier with a little hangover. But after some relaxing and a second breakfast we beat it and took some laps through the park. In the end we arrived back in Schladming about 9pm, real tired but with a big smile on our faces.
