The Snowboard Test - the annual week of shredding, partying and geeking out over the latest kit before it hits the stores, is back this year, but with a difference.
Rather than repeat the same closed industry event format of years gone by, the organisers this year are throwing it open to the wider public. This means everyone now has the opportunity to come and try out next season's kit before even the shop monkeys get their hands on it.
Not only that, it also means the parties this year will be bigger, the jam format comps will be better and the annual snowboard pub quiz will probably be off the hook!
With packages going for as little as £149 for the week (including four nights accommodation and a three day Kaunertal liftpass) and the event running from 4th - 10th of May, this is the perfect way to send off the season.
Even if you've already had one main snowboard holiday, why not head back out for a long weekend of spring shredding, fun park laps and good parties? Why not indeed.
