So that’s another incredible Hotzone Hintertux Opening done and dusted. As ever Hintertux delivered the goods and thousands of riders, brands, media and tourists, congregated to celebrate the official start of winter. If you weren’t there you really did miss out, but do not despair, here are some visual bangers so you can see what you missed. With some of the best snow conditions and one of the best parks¬† in memory for this time of year, Hintertux is really on point. Here’s a snippet of what we witnessed.
