K2 is 25 years old! That means a big party is on the horizon. After getting a bit nostalgic K2 have decided to host a slalom event on the 6th of April 2013, in the birthplace of the Banked Masters in Europe, at Hoher Ifen in Kleinwalsertal/ Austria.

The event is set to combine traditional formats with modern day snowboarding. A banked slalom course, peppered with freestyle elements will make everyone happy. Teams of three will compete against each other and get judged on style, tech and time counts. The competitors will be fighting it out for the glorious K2 Kranked Axe.

At the end of the day the essence of the event is all about the spirit of K2 and snowboarding, which is having a good time together with your friends.

Just having a competition is not the right way to celebrate your birthday, so after the event there will be a big party. This will be held in a huge tent area, live bands and DJs will be there from dusk till dawn. There will also be a heated sleeping tent which will offer simple accommodation and will pick up tired party folks.
