The Snowboard Test 2012

Last week I was out in Kaunertal, Austria for the annual Snowboard Test, and one final shred of the season.

The event which is run by industry stalwart and editor of The Reason magazine, Ian Sansom, brings together snowboarding brands, shops, media and pro riders to test ride and review next season’s hardware before it hits the shops for next season. As well as being an important industry event, it also provides the perfect opportunity for everyone in the UK snowboarding scene to catch up, and is widely regarded as being one of the best weeks of the season.

Conditions this year were fantastic with loads of fresh snow and sunshine – pretty incredible for early May!

If you’d like to find out a bit more about what went on, here’s a review that I wrote for Snowboarding Deals UK

‘The Snowboard Test 2012’

There are also more photos on the Riding Switch Facebook page, and I’ll be doing reviews of next season’s kit for Snowboarding Deals UK over the coming months. Roll on winter 2012/13!
