The new home of British snowboarding of late, due to the high standard of snow parks seen around huge ski areas Austria is becoming to go to shred destination. Whilst it’s great all winter, late spring is when it really comes into it’s best.

High grooming standards – on piste, not fashionably as a trip to the local Oompah band record store will show – and quality park shaping mean that resorts worth the visit can stay open later each year, in fact WL are heading off for our annual Spring Break in Kaunertal in the first week of May this year!

Almost guaranteed sun makes up for the super slushy parks, unless like us you love slush, in which case it’s a winner all round! As well as Kaunertal; Sölden and Stubai both host amazing spring parks, a no brainer if ever there was one. And the good news is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to experience it!
