Year after year, our German editor gets super excited to get her shred on with not a single snow flake in sight. Crazy? For sure a bit, but not completely as the Hintertux Glacier is opening its doors (and slopes) end of September, being the first shred-ready resort in the Alps. Plus adidas Snowboarding, Apo, Arbor, Bataleon, Burton, Capita, DC, Deeluxe, Dragon, Flux, Gnu, Jones, K2 Snowboarding, Lib Tech, Lobster, Never Summer, Nike, Oakley, Ride Snowboards, Roxy, Salomon, Shred, Silbaerg, Slash by Gigi, Slytech, SP United, Split Hike Ride, Switchback, thirtytwo, Union, and Yes will all have their latest Winter 2013/2014 gear there to test!

So if you got itchy feet just like that, make sure to join us in this amazing shred stoke party that always lures the most fanatic of shred enthusiasts to the Zillertal valley to indulge in their favourite activities! Aimee Fuller is usually among the first ones to join and definitely enjoys the set up of the Betterpark there, as her little edit below shows. And backcountry wizard Helen Schettini, about whose badass-ery you can read in our brand new issue, has announced her visit as well...

But enough of our ramblings, here's the program - let us know if you'll pop by!
