The ICE CAMP at Kitzsteinhorn is open! For the first time, Audi quattro presents the fascinating igloo world made of ice and snow near Zell am See-Kaprun, Salzburg County, Austria. The 3 big igloos will be the stylish meeting point at Kitzsteinhorn until the mid of April, 2014. Enjoying music, drinks and snacks, you can marvel at the unique ice world of the igloos or adore the outstanding view on the mountain ranges surrounding Kitzsteinhorn.
The fabulous ICE CAMP Kitzsteinhorn has been erected for the 8th time already, but for the first time in cooperation with premium car-maker Audi. The three huge connected igloos with a 12-metre diameter each are situated on 2,600 m sea level right in the middle of the Kitzsteinhorn skiing-area. Quattro Lounge, Ice Bar and a huge sun deck fascinate visitors with a classy world of ice and snow, a unique place to enjoy and relax. In this extraordinary ambiance, Audi puts the Audi A5 Coupé with legendary quattro drive in its true light.
Artistic interior by Austrian artist Max Seibald.
As in the previous years, Austrian artist Max Seibald and his assistant Anna Kramm were responsible for the design of the interior. “The entrance opens a 300-m2 interior room which has been arranged following Romanesque construction principles”, Seibald explains. “With the system of a flexible interior shape, the ICE CAMP team built the 3 ball-shaped scrapers in layers of artificial snow and then connected them with archways. The simple volumes of the rooms stage the ice objects but also those who have the unique opportunity to assure themselves of a successful building project at place.” For the costruction of this artistic world of ice and snow, Chris Geissler’s and Andi Tremschnig’s ICE CAMP team moved 60 tons of ice and 5,000 cubic metres of snow.
Until the mid of April, the ICE CAMP Kitzsteinhorn presented by Audi quattro is open to visitors for free. Skiers can reach it via the groomed slopes while walkers can walk there in about 20 minutes from Alpincenter on the ICE CAMP Trail (sturdy shoes and poles recommended).
