October 1st-3rd, 2010, Tux, Hintertux Glacier – The first snow park in the Alps ready for action!
The Hintertux shapers are true early birds, therefore you will already find perfect obstacles in the Betterpark on the first weekend of October (October 1st-3rd)! Of course Gigi Rüf, Wolle Nyvelt, Werni Stock, Marco Feichtner, Marko Grilc and many more are familiar with that and use the set up on the Hintertuxer glacier to prepare for winter season. Next to the amazing park, the Hotzone.tv Park Opening also sports a free of charge test centre with the latest products for 2010/11, a bunch of side activities and of course supreme partying on both nights!
The hotzone.tv Park Opening Hintertux emerged to be one of the most popular snowboard openings in Europe for good reasons. The perfectly shaped Betterpark, the MiniShred rail obstacle at the Fernerhaus and queue free ascents with the Gletscherbus are more than proof that this event is all about the sport. On top of that, there will be a special highlight for all shred kids under 16: the BILLABONG Kids Shoot on Sunday, October 3rd, where all kids who want to have their photo taken by a professional get a chance to shoot with one of the Pleasure Mag photographers on the rail or kicker line (register at www.hotzone.tv). Those who are already in battle mood should join the pro and am contest Session of the Dudes on Saturday, spreading fame and a bit of money. Some more money will also be spread at the Cash for Trix Session at the Mini Shred Obstacle in front of the Fernerhaus.
Of course side activities and parties can’t miss out at the hotzone.tv Park Opening as well. All together there will be more than 15 brands offering their latest products for free on snow testing, with DJs soundtracking the test area at the Fernerhaus and a nice BBQ rounding up the joys on the mountain.
From 2pm on Saturday the Gloryfy Bag Jump will be waiting for you at the glacier parking lot, where you jump off a crane into the Original Bag Jump. The K2 POP this! Highest Ollie Tournament on the other hand won’t be looking for the highest jump but the snowboarders with the most POP in their boards. To warm up the Friday night is dedicated to the Shred Warm Up Party presented by Shred Optics in the Kleine Tenne in Tux. The Opening night on Saturday is sponsored by Ozzie Surf Snow Brand Rhythm and will go down in Hintertux as usual. As the Hohenhaus Tenne was literally run over by the party eager crowd in the last years, the location for the Rhythm Opening Night will be enlarged this year. Two more party locations in Hintertux will be in the game: Tux1 and Almhit. We recommend to reserve your party tickets online already at www.hotzone.tv or get them upfront in one of these three Shops Hotzone (Gerlos), the seeker (Mayrhofen), insider (Tux) or at the hotzone tent in the test area. Minimum age to enter the party is 16. It is obligatory to show your ID at the entrance!!
