A mixture of feelings came rushing through us as we knew that the event that marks the end of the season was upon us, Snowboard Spring Break. Yet again we’ve managed to come out alive from this marvellous madness of an event, only to be left feeling slightly empty inside. Returning to reality after four days of intense snowboarding, followed by intense beer drinking, has left the Whitelines crew feeling like a shell of our former selves. However, we can’t wait to be back for more next year!

So, what went down this year at Snowboard Spring Break? First of all, the event got relocated. After years of mischief in Kaunertal, this year it was time for Mayrhofen to welcome a bunch of UK nutters into their tiny village. Gasthof Zillertal was the base for a whole lot of snowboarders during the four days of the event. The lovely event crew made sure there was plenty of action to keep us busy, including a very intense beer pong tournament, the legendary garage night (which this year sadly went down without any actual garage music) and of course, a Game of Thrones screening to keep the GoT fans happy. We forever remain grateful that the Gasthof crew put up with our misbehaviour while still serving us burgers and beers with a smile on their face.
