The Volcom gang was beyond ready for the snow season to start. So they embarked on a 4 stop mission to Glacier openings in the area with some simple goals; shred and get together with all our snowboarding friends and share some good times.
Partnering with long time friends Go-Shred, they started with Hintertux on October 1st, following with Kaunertal on October 8, Kitzsteinhorn on the next day then finishing up with Stubai on October 22, setting up on the parking lots with games, music and free BBQs with refreshments after each session to extend the the stoke of the first rides.
We met Gigi in STUBAI
Hintertux was sunny and felt so good with mellow vibes, Kaunertal was maniac with tons of shredders from all over Europe, and a miniramp was added to the parking lot setup.
Fort that last one, Go Shred organized a rad shuttle service from Innnsbruck to Kaunertal including coffee, croissant and a Volcom surprise bag
Kitzsteinhorn, which happens to be Volcom partner resort, was absolutely packed.. It was madness in the park, with almost as many riders hiking the park as there were on the T-bar. You can now ride mor than 1200 vertical meters.. Check Kitzsteinhorn.at for live updates
Then the tour finished with the Stubai Glacier opening with a good session on the Friday, and Saturday afternoon we set up at the bottom of the new multi million € Gondola and prepared everything for the smiling guests. With some drinks provided from our partner Jimmy’s bar, music, finger food, and a big raffle, everyone enjoyed themselves.
Please note that it has been snowing A LOT since these pics were taken.. We are off to one of the BEST winter starts in many years. Many resorts are reporting of a 1m+ base at 2000m
BIG thank you to all of you for celebrating with us and supporting Volcom & go-shred.com. Also thx to our partners: go-shred, Spezi – Das Original, Innsbruck Olympia World Skatehalle, Mata Skateboarding and Jimmy’s bar Innsbruck
