From the 25th to the 28th of February 2010 the show will go on again: For the first time the Austrian Freeski Open will hit the Kitzsteinhorn Mellow Park in Zell am See-Kaprun.
Since some higher peaks have already been covered with snow, winter enthusiasts eagerly await winter to return. Especially the freeskiers look forward to this winterâ€™s highlight: for the first time, the Austrian Freeski Open will be held at Kitzsteinhorn at Zell am See-Kaprun, Austria. With a special set-up of kickers, rails and creative obstacles, the Kitzsteinhorn Mellow Park will see international freeskiers showing off with their latest tricks.
Just after the Austrian Freeski Open both the European Open and the European X-Games are going to happen. Therefore the Austrian Freeski Open will be kicking off a series of top-class freeski events drawing numerous top riders from all over the world. Riders will compete in three categories: besides the Open Menâ€™s, there will be a very exciting Rookiesâ€™ category for talented riders below 16 as well as the Open Women competition.
Despite being an internationally highly acknowledged event, the Austrian Freeski Open will still remain a gathering of the freeskiing family. In addition to the action at the park, an attractive package of side events, concerts and DJ acts will transform Zell am See-Kaprun into the centre of freeskiing.
