On the first week of May for the last five years the Snowboard-Review.com team has made the pilgrimage to the annual UK Snowboard Test. in Kaunertal , Austria Usually an industry saturated event this year the event is being opened-up for the general public. So if you can afford a week of holiday in May why not make use of the tests ridiculously low price and get yourself some late season glacier action?
This year the UK Snowboard Test, recently renamed Spring Break will run from Saturday 4th of May until Friday 10th. Packages start at 150 Euros for 3 nights self catering with a 3 day lift pass included and escalate to 401 Euros for 6 nights half board in a 3* hotel with a 6 day ski pass… they’re practically giving the week away at these prices. Getting to Kaunertal can be a bit of mission and to be honest, although train and bus travel via Landeck and Innsbruck are possible we’d advise against it. If you’re coming from the UK we’d suggest flying to Munich and picking up a hire car for the duration of your stay; the 45 minute drive up to the glacier base station every morning is much less nauseating if you don’t have to ride the free bus (the vomit comet). The test is uaually very well attended by brands so finding your dream stick for the next winter is more than likely.
Visit the Spring Break Snowboard Test to find out more and maybe we’ll see you there!
