Last weekend (October 3-5) saw the opening of the resort's snow park with a party atmosphere and free snowboard testing, prop rider demos as well as an Absinthe Film premiere.

The Betterpark at the Hintertux glacier, maintained by head shaper Wille Kaufmann, includes a superpipe, a big corner, a pro line, a medium line and an easy line with freshly shaped kickers as well as a bunch of newly designed boxes.

The Hintertuxer Glacier not only provides perfect test conditions in the park but the cable car ‘Gletscherbus III' allows long rides down without waiting at the lift. Thanks to the new enlarged snow making network the chances of riding all the way down to the ‘Ferner Haus' have greatly increased.
