Hoodstock 2012

May 16, 2012






On Thursday we bumped into Amplid Ambush riders Harry J and Andi Nitsche on the snow. They’d been enjoying a week sliding and camping at Kaunertal, Austria’s number one spring destination for riders desparate to get a few more rails and kicker hits before the summer takes hold. Andi was particularly pleased that he’d managed to get his retro aircooled VW Camper up the 26km (>1500m vertical) climb. When the snow got too slushy it was straight to the 3 Wood for Marmot golf… a great way to keep Kaunertal’s booming Marmot population under control and spend hundreds of Euros on golfballs, never to be seen again. (*no Marmots were harmed at Hoodstock 2012)
