For decades, Austria’s Kaunertal Glacier has been the site of legendary road gap sessions. In 2022, Downdays decided to pay tribute to this long-standing tradition with our own creative take. We called it: the Gaptastic Voyage!

Kaunertal is home to a long and cherished freestyle tradition. In the 1990s, it was one of the first resorts in the Alps to embrace the growing snowpark trend. In addition to fall and spring park sessions that have defined the start and end of the season for generations of riders, the winding glacier road also became known as a prime location for building unsanctioned road-gap jumps.

In April 2022, Downdays teamed up with the Snowpark Kaunertal crew to build a unique setup featuring three separate road gaps, all rideable in a single line. The resulting session exceeded everyone’s expectations, and added an exciting new chapter to Kaunertal’s enduring freestyle mythos.
