The first snowboarders on the glacier arrived from Australia and England, and soon the colourful and wildly rebellious scene could be ignored no longer – so Kaunertal Glacier built one of the first half pipes in the Alps. Much has changed since those days, but Kaunertal is still proud of its snowboarding heritage. Some of the most legendary events like the Kaunertal Opening and the Spring Classics are deeply rooted in the history of snowboarding and have gained cult status over the past thirty years, while the original single half pipe has developed into the renowned Snowpark Kaunertal.
Snowpark Kaunertal - designed to jump!
During the autumn and spring seasons the snowpark is maintained daily by Schneestern’s crew of genius shapers, so the kickers and features are always in perfect condition to send and jib.
