Kaunertal Opening, the mother of all openings is celebrating its 30th anniversary. From October 9 to 11 snowboarders and freeskiers will gather for the season kick off in Kaunertal, with an extensive anniversary program included.
Different contests and sessions have always been the highlights of the Kaunertal Opening. Besides the traditional Pro and Am contests the GoPro Legend Ridersclash will be a newcomer this year. Here, stars from KTO’s history will compete against each other in teams of amateurs. Two “style generations” will clash guaranteeing loads of fun for both the participants as well as the spectators.
As usual the Kaunertal Opening is accompanied by a huge equipment test.
TheBlue Tomato Testival Village gathers the leading ski and snowboard brands on the glacier and gives the riders the possibility to test new equipment on snow.
Naturally the anniversary opening also features an intoxicating evening program. On Friday, the renowned band Bilderbuch will be playing live in the Kaunertal, while on Saturday the Wax Wreckaz, the Beginner Soundsystem and the Mundwerk Crew will be performing on stage. You will also have the opportunity to be one of the first to watch the brand-new movies “Eversince” (snowboarding) and “Passenger” (freeskiing).
