32. KTO
Kaunertal, Austria's Season Opening presented by BLUE TOMATO
The essential event for every ski & snowboard lover in Europe!

 

When the fall comes, every winter sports enthusiast can’t stop thinking about the upcoming season. It is the time of crazy ski & snowboard movie premieres, constant checks of a forecast and opening dates of ski resorts. One of the earliest events, which our beautiful Alps in Europe offer, is the KTO - Kaunertal Opening. In the middle of October, you can already shred the glacier in the high mountains of Austria. This year’s 32nd KTO offered 3 days full of pure AWESOMENESS. Schneestern built a great snowpark with the half mile jib line 2.0 and medium kickers on the side. There were a variety of features, fitting every skill level.

The yearly BLUE TOMATO Testival gave us an opportunity to test the newest ski & snowboard gear from more than 40 different brands for free. There were also many sessions, contests and side events, from amateur and professional competitions to open jib sessions, girls shreds, avalanche workshops or skate sessions on the mini ramp and the pump track. Yes, the pump track! All of this was held in a chill atmosphere with great music.

Sunday was all about  the girls!

After a Shred Unit morning jib session, girls were showing off at the open girls rail jam presented by GNU! The final best trick winner was Anna “Puotka” Plocinska - our dearest Polish friend and a great snowboarder!

Thanks to all girls for pushing their limits!

After each full day of playing on the sunny slopes, KTO organised the AfterRide STREETPARTIES with live concerts, DJs, Street Food, Skate features and Movie premiers in the bottom of the valley. We got to watch the premiere of the Absinthe movie “TurboDojo” together with an after concert of a band from California called “EasyGiant”, which simply ROCKED and kept us warm Saturday evening! After that, the night continued and you were still able to enjoy a variety of musicians in nightclubs for the rest of the night!

To sum it up we had a blast that weekend! A great snowpark, a lot of sun, many activities, friends and fun. Pure snowboarding happiness for me! Thanks a lot, Kaunertal! And hopefully see you more this season and definitely the next year at KTO!

So, everyone saves the date! see you at 12th of October 2018 in Kaunertal, Austria!

SHRED ON!

A few words from our other She Shreds ambassadors:

“KTO was the perfect jump right into the start of an amazing season. Snow & Slopes, fantastic people, boards and skies and all sort of equipment to test, contests, music and so many great vibes. It was an honour to represent Sheshreds on this wonderful event!”

"Starting the season with KTO’17 was absolutely perfect. It was quite a spontaneous trip for me and it was so worth it, I enjoyed every moment of it and I think the best part was to have met some rad girls.! A few days have already passed since and I’m still walking around with a huge smile on my face!”
