VÖLKL Split & Freeride Camp
In the last few winters many snowboarders have learned to appreciate the advantages of splitboarding! Adventuring in the vast backcountry has always been a big challenge in the past. Trekking through deep snow, getting stuck on flat terrain and strenuous ascents have always been very annoying and tiring. With splitboarding, snowboarders can find better touring routes and new ways to explore the most remote backcountry areas and access new uncharted territory. With the Volkl Split & Freeride Camps it does not matter if you are a splitboard rookie or pro, everyone can find exactly the right adventure for his or her riding level. Please join us in exploring the untouched backcountry of the Tyrolean Alps at the Axamer Lizum, Hintertuxer Gletscher and Stubaier Gletscher. Those new to Splitboarding will learn how to handle the gear, tour, hike and ride with their splitboard starting with tours of around 500 high-meters a day. All advanced and pro splitboarders that are looking for the ultimate group experience in high altitude, abseiling into steep descents and riding challenging big mountain faces will definitely get the adrenaline kick they are seeking. All participants will have the opportunity to test the new Volkl Untrac splitboard from 2014/2015 for free. Deeluxe will be offering special freeride boots to try out as well as Marker bringing helmets and goggles for free demo. Ortovox provides the entire safety equipment kit. There will be avalanche transceivers, shovels and probe-poles for all camps with a bonus of being able to try out the ABS Airbag System backpacks. Blue Tomato is giving out free goodie bags full of surprises and shopping vouchers to all campers. As Austria´s only all-year-round ski area, Hintertux Glacier scores with the best snow conditions. The high alpine cabin camp will be based at the one and only Diggl Freeride Farm. This special mountain hut comes with an outdoor hot tub, wooden sauna and will keep you as comfortable as can be. Please note this camp is only for advanced freeriders who are able to splitboard up to heights between 800 to 1.000 meters a day. That being said, all riders should know that their efforts will be rewarded with great turns!
