If you were somehow doubting just how mint the Hintertux glacier is looking at the moment, this official recap video of the Hotzone Park opening a couple of weekends ago will help change your mind. A whole bunch of pro riders including the UK's Jamie Nicholls rocked up to throwdown at the 'Session of the Dudes' comp under bluebird skies. It was Christmas come early for Elias Elhardt and even World Snowboarding Championships champ Mr Chas Guldemond figured it would be worth a flight over from the states for some early season hucking on some house-sized booters. The Hotzone park is only set to get bigger and better as the season progresses so start scouring the interweb for those cheap flights out to Innsbruck!
