Since last year we have a new way to officially start and celebrate the new snowboarding season. Together with a bunch of friends, a load of kids and our entourage we headed towards Mayrhofen / Hintertux to be a part of the Transform Gloves Parkhill freestyle camp. The Transform Gloves Parkhill camp is the autumn version of summer shred and probably even better with having the winter in sight, if winter isn’t already started by then. Last year for instance the organisation of the Parkhill even arranged a couple tons of powder in Hintertux for the change, eventually too many bluebird park days is gonna bore you for sure.
Not that I’ve seen anyone being bored people last year. Instead, everyone was occupied 24/7 with catpainting, skating the bowl in Mayrhofen with Gulli, watch the latest videos, play Wii, more manly games like armwrestling and drink beers, tend to do work, eat schnitzels, relax and everything that comes when you’re done sideslipping the Tuxer glacier with the pros. PROS? Yes, Transform Gloves brought some of their best men to improve and teach you how to walk, talk, skate and maybe even to snowboard like a true legend. Last year we were accompanied by Gulli Gudmundsson, Joonas Mustonen, Danny Larsen & Einar Stefansson. Same story this year, the word is going that Transform Gloves, Lobster, K2, Holden, Sabre and Quiksilver are bringing a bag full of teamriders, enough for everyone.
So far our jealous making words, we’re gonna drop a load of photo’s to convince you this is best season starter.
The Gasthof we’re talking about. Nice and cozy somewhere on Mayrhofen borders.
Only a couple of nimbly bimbly minutes away from the lively center of Mayrhofen.
Campers united, we have ‘m in all sorts and all sizes but they have one thing in common and that’s that they all want to shred till the last lift goes up. And when someone is down they are all there to cheer that guy up.
Our boy Steef van der Meer came by to accompany us for a short stay together with his Postland friends. We’re glad he’s enjoying this moment.
Behold the perfectly groomed park left from the lift, good to see they don’t have to worry about the cash according to all those banners in the park.
Fresh snowfall also has it’s cons, bad weather for instance. But also that is taken care off by the crew. They just get everybody in the bus and drive to the nearest indoor playground to ride miniramps, bounce trampolines or just act like you know skating.
