WE WANT SNOW -  SO SPLIT & RELAX will take place in MARCH 2018. Round #5 from 09th until 11th of  March everything is about Splitboarding at the LIVINGROOM HOCHKÖNIG and this year finally with enough snow and great variety of touring options for beginners, advanced and experts.

There might be already some stuff from the season 17-18 available for testing. Again we have a multimedia presentation from the Bootsjungen Crew in our program, Who is ready for the Hochkönig, he Four Couloirs or the Schneek*** (secret)?

Of course, we are looking forward to see all those who want to get a first taste of splitboarding, to the usual suspects who have remained loyal to us despite the lack of snow and, also to the specialists who want to experience the Hochkönig high on snow. This year the fantastic mountain world around our Splitboard Camp at the Hochkönig awaits you to be discovered, climbed and ridden, really with enough snow. Tours for beginners, touring up to the Hochkönig himself, the legendary Snowk*** (secret) and many more can be done when the conditions are right. Get off your ass, inform your friends and come along to the probably most relaxed Splitboard Testival in 2018.

It's not only the informal get-together at the testival and while splitboard touring, there is also a lot to learn. From getting dialed in with the material, the theoretical knowledge of touring and avalanche awareness to practical exercises of rescue and burial.

As in the past years we have prepared 3 packages for you, which thanks to our mountain guides will be adapted exactly to your splitboarding needs.
