Press Release: VOLCOM WILL RUN ITS 6TH ANNUAL BANKED SLALOM AT KITZSTEINHORN DURING AN EXTENDED WEEKEND ON THE 26, 27 AND 28TH APRIL 2019, IN AUSTRIA!
Join us to celebrate the end of the season the best way possible, together with the Volcom family and team.

This year will see a couple of great changes:
Overall men and women winners get a starting spot at the legendary Mt Baker Banked Slalom 2020 !

Open division qualifiers will be held on Friday 26 April, allowing more Open entries in the contest, and Saturday will see Open finals together with Pro division race.

On Sunday 28 April, everyone will gather again on the hill to wash off the hangover for a season Ender Bender!

As always, there will also be tons of prizes from Volcom for each division: Pro Women/Men, Open Women/Men, but also random epicness and weird age groups will be rewarded. All generations welcome!

Carve yourself into history on the hill and then party your pants off at the Volcom Castle Rock Out on Saturday night in the medieval castle of Kaprun.

Church of Mental Enlightment will open up the party and then The Shrine will shake the castle walls with their riffs. Get ready for a night you’ll remember!

The party will be free for all as always (16+, Max capacity pending).

Kitzsteinhorn is also home of 3 snowboard parks and one of the best half pipes in the Alps.
