SPLIT & RELAX #6 - Time to come back!!! The most important international Splitboard Festival (Testival) will take place from February 8-10, 2019, as always at the LIVINGROOM HOCHKÖNIG in the Salzburg region.  With the best brands of the scene, 3 days are all about testing the latest splitboard material, safety on the mountains and of course fun and joy in the dreamlike surroundings of the majestic Hochkönig.

You heard about splitboarding and would like to try it? You already go and want to meet like-minded people? Would you like to discover the most beautiful tours of the region with a mountain guide? Then inform your friends and get ready for an unforgettable weekend at the Hochkönig! 
For the experts among you there will most likely be some "special routes". Be it the Hochkönig himself, the Four Channels, the Torscharte or the Schneek*** (secret). Of course there are also easier tours for all levels. Our local guides know where it is best.

We look forward to all repeat offenders who have remained loyal to us despite the lack of snow - to those who learned to love the Livingroom HK in brilliant white last year and of course to the specialists who want to experience the Hochkönig on snow. As always, female splitboarders are very welcome. The fantastic mountain world around our Splitboard Festival at Hochkönig wants to be discovered, climbed and ridden by you. Let's go, inform your friends and come to the most relaxed Splitboard Festival 2019.

With Split & Relax it is not only the relaxed get-together at the Testival and on the Splitboard tours, there is also a lot to learn. From getting to know the material to the theoretical knowledge of touring and avalanche awareness to the practical exercises of rescue comrades and search for buried victims, everything is offered that is important for relaxed splitboarding.

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