Last weekend the elooa SPLITBOARD OPENING CAMP presented by K2 SNOWBOARDING took place in the Austrian Kaunertal. With perfect conditions and fresh powder we started successful into another promising Splitboard season!
The camp at Kaunertal Glacier was addressed to all interested shredders who have always wanted to try a Splitboard on simple routes and under expert guidance, as well as all already Splitboard-Infected who finally wanted to start in the new winter season. Equipped with brand new K2 Marauder Splitboards and avalanche safety equipment from BCA, the participants were familiarized by experienced Splitboard professionals with all the basic techniques and accompanied by certified mountain guides on their first tours.
We started on Friday evening after Check-In and a delicious dinner with a Splitboard workshop. All necessary components were explained and could be tested afterwards. On Saturday morning followed a practical training about skins, crampons, poles, avalanche transceiver and of course all the hiking and climbing techniques. Following launched the first Splitboard tour of the season under winter-sun and with powder in a rustic small valley up to 2400m. With the last warming sun-rays we cruised back to the valley through untracked powder with smiling faces. Relaxing sauna, 3 course dinner and a theoretical avalanche keynote rounded off the day. On Sunday followed another tour after a quick warm-up run in the Kaunertal Gletscher resort up to the almost 3000m high Weißseejoch. The following run down through deep and untracked powder performed a cheerful smile on all faces and anticipation towards the next winter-months.
An instructive and snow-rich Splitboard weekend came to an end and we are looking forward to the next elooa SPLITBOARD CAMPS presented by K2 - hopefully also with you!
