Volcom Banked Slalom Banking in Kitzsteinhorn

We closed out our winter season with the 5th annual Volcom Banked Slalom and Castle Rockout in Kaprun/Kitzsteinhorn. Yet another epic ender with lots of friendly freaks, great weather, fun banking and a legendary party at castle.

Volcom team rider Olivier Gittler opened the night with his band, Leopard Ale, followed by a mind blowing set from King Khan and the Shrines. The party location is so unique — there are no words to describe the atmosphere in the castle when it’s packed with partying snowboarders.

Big thanks to Volcom and Kitzsteinhorn for putting on such a rad event, Active by Leitners for the hospitality, and Pascal Imhof (who also notched the fastest time) for this report!

Kitzsteinhorn has one of the best freestyle setups in the Alps and is still open for shredding until May 6th, so go there and check it out. Podium winners and some tunes below…
