The Rendl snow park (run by )

In the last couple of years the Rendl snowpark has been taken over by the professional park builders Q Parks… and what a difference its made! Its now expertly shaped and maintained all season.

It still has the 2 line pro kicker setup right next to the Rendl beach with a wall ride at the end but has now built 2 more kicker lines the other side of the speed run.

The second line is of medium size, contains 3 hits and is a great place to improve and practice before stepping it up to the big ones!

The third line is a complete beginners line and the hits are perfect for anyone who hasn’t jumped before … your son, your mum or your grandma!

There’s also a large selection of rails and boxes of varying difficulties starting at the far left side of the park and running all the way to the drag lift at the bottom.

It’s a good place to learn and not as intimidating as many of the parks around Europe. Lower your pants below your ass, put on your 6XL tall t-shirt, turn your hip hop up and get jumping!

Off Piste in St Anton

It’s unquestioned that St Anton not only has some of the best off piste riding in Europe but also the world! It’s the reason many of those who work and holiday here come back year after year. You’ve got everything from steeps and chutes to trees and mellow lines. Fast exposed terrain to rolly easy learning areas.

If you fancy getting to grips with the backcountry here my-stanton recommend hiring a professional guide for the day or week. Not only will they find you the best snow and best faces for your ability but they’re also fully qualified to assess the avalanche danger and keep you safe. See bottom of page for some links to local guides.

If you are venturing off piste without a guide stick to these guidelines:

1. Always wear an avalanche transceiver (and know how to use it)
2. Carry a backpack with a probe, first aid kit and (preferably) a metal shovel
3. Let someone know where you are going and when you plan to be back
4. Check the avalanche and weather forecast before you set off and keep an eye on changing conditions throughout the day
5. Always ski an off piste line one person at a time and stop in a safe area before the next person drops in
6. Don’t be afraid to back out of a line if you feel its not safe
7. Follow your gut instinct… if all the signs say its safe but you don’t have a good feeling turn around. Theres no shame in backing out.
