First weekend of December the elooa SPLITBOARD OPENING CAMP presented by K2 took place in the Austrian Kaunertal. With great conditions and fresh powder we started successful into another promising Splitboard season!
The camp at Kaunertal 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 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. 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 bright winter-sun and with fresh snow. With the last warming sun-rays after an extensive avalanche training 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 splitboard tour, this time with heavy snowfall. The following run down through fresh 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!
