16 September 2016    

As already announced, every day on the mountain is a good day. That's why SPLIT & RELAX goes into the fourth round. From 16th until 18th of December everything is about Splitboarding at the LIVINGROOM HOCHKÖNIG. Shortly before christmas the new splitboard equipment is ready for you. This time with a multimedia presentation "Splitboard-Freeriding from Kyrgyztan to Tadzhikistan".

Of course we'll be happy to welcome all the known suspects and many yet unkown faces to enjoy the most beautiful winter sport of earth. The fantastic mountains around Hochkönig are waiting for you to be discovered, mounted and to be ridden. So go for it, tell your friends about this and join the probably most relaxed splitboard event of winter 2016.

But it's not just the easy get-together, there's also much to learn. Testing, trying out and getting used to the equipment is one part, theory of backcountry touring and avalanche safety another, completed by practical excercises in avalanche search and companion rescue.

Like the years before, we offer you three different packages that are, thanks to our mountain guides, adjusted exactly to your needs.
