Last week we started together with NITRO SNOWBOARDS pro Eero Ettala at the Kaunertal glacier into the elooa winter season 2018/19. Four days with perfect conditions and bluebird were waiting for the 40 campers and Eero, the six elooa coaches plus one pro photographer, filmmaker and more pros like Benny Urban, Ludvig Billtoft, Marc Swoboda, Dominik Wagner and Antti Jussila.
After the Check In into the hotel on Wednesday the camp started with the Welcome Evening and a get together with the pros. Highly motivated we went on Thursday with the campers and the international snowboard stars up on the glacier. After fresh snow arrived we first took laps in the resort and were riding powder while the Snowpark Kaunertal was shaped. On Friday the park was in best shape with multiple lines of kickers, rails and boxes which guaranteed a super perfect start into the season. Numerous warm up runs in the morning and a photo- and videoshoot in the afternoon were on the program. On top all participants were able to test brand new NITRO SNOWBOARDS products of the season 2018/19 directly next to the snowpark. After an epic day we went back to the hotel with tired legs where a delicious dinner was waiting for everyone. After that we analyzed the videoshots of the day together with Eero and the elooa coaches extensively. What more could you ask for? Everyone was super happy and of course hot to implement the tips of the pros and coaches. Incredible progression for all campers and tons of fun provided a perfect weekend of snowboarding. The following days were just perfect with sunshine so everyone had the chance to get more coaching, photo shootings and multiple runs with Eero and the elooa coaches at Snowpark Kaunertal. New tricks, happy faces, tons of fun and no injuries at all made our season opening just amazing. Everyone can start now perfectly prepared into the new snowboard season. We are so ready for Winter 2018/19!
