Snow park on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier above Kaprun wins award

The German magazine ADAC Reisemagazin in its published Ski guide reports on the testing Euorpe's ski resorts terrain parks. The Kitzsteinhorn glacier Ski area above Kaprun has been judged for the year of the report. The Kitzsteinhorn has been very successful and has won in the category of "Snowpark" in front of other leading resorts such as Les Deus Alpes and Davos/Jakobshorn.

To summarise the Kitzsteinhorn Mellow Park is considered to be world class!

If this is not enough there are plans for the snow park areas to be extended and the "park shapers" are waiting for their turn to build up again the Glacier Park, the DC Central Park
