By now you should all be familiar with The Snowboard Spring break week. For those that aren’t, the event is held on the picturesque Kaunertal Glacier and is a chance for the UK scene to ensemble en masse to sample next years product, catch up with old friends and of course drink and party. Whilst the weather was horrifically bad for the first couple of days, good spirits remained and eventually the resort was blessed with sun, slush and even powder for the majority of the week. Spring Break offers a chance to round up the season in style and here is what captured our attention throughout the week.
