• snowboarding-season kick-off in Hintertux

Meet the Billabong crew this coming weekend at the annual snowboarding-season kick-off event at the the Hotzone.tv Opening on the Hintertux glacier in Tyrol, Austria.

If you are 16 or younger make sure you stop by our tent on Friday or Saturday in the test area and sign up for the Billabong Kids Shoot on Sunday. Pleasure Magazine's senior photographer and founder Markus Fischer alongside Billabong rider and snowboarding legend Wolle Nyvelt as well as teamriders Tini Gruber, Nadine Härtinger and Roland Hörtnagl will take the young shreds to the Betterpark to shoot some professional snowboarding imagery of the kids.

All weekend long we will be selling the exclusive and official Hotzone.tv Opening t-shirts at our tent.

And we will be spinning the infamous Wheel of Fate all weekend long giving you the chance to play for some Billabong goodies and pretty much have a good time and recover from long hours in the snowpark at our tent.

See you all in Hintertux this weekend to kick-off the sickest snowboarding season we've ever had! Trust us!
