The finishing touches have now been made to the SCUK Winter Bash in Mayrhofen, and bookings are expecting to rocket faster than Sinitta up a rat-infested drainpipe. As most of you know, this is the main event on the SCUK calendar and for the first time this year comes with a two week option for show-offs, or those in the banking sector. Accommodation ranges from affordable 2* guest houses to the spacious 4* St Joseph Aparthotel.
The trip kicks off in ‘Style’ of the ‘Billabong Air & Style’ variety, as we descend upon one of the biggest snowboard shows on the planet. You will be among the 30,000 at the incredible Bergisel Stadium in Innsbruck cheering on 24 of the World’s best, which we have recently heard is expected to include our very own Jamie Nicholls! Imagine it people, relaying tales of how you were there when Jamie Nicholls won the Air & Style!
The Billabong Air & Style ticket is optional, but have a look at what you’d be missing and remember this includes a live gig from Beatsteaks – admittedly a largely obscure band to us, but practically royalty in Germany.
On the snowboarding front, in addition to the epic off-piste possibilities and Austria's steepest groomed slope in the Harakiri (average incline of 78 percent!... hmmm, that could be prone to moguls), you have the world famous Vans Penken Park, home of the TTR Aesthetiker Jam. To help you make the most of your week, we’ve had the boys from Maverix pack a suitcase and head out to offer some top-quality freestyle coaching and finally get those triple-corks on lock.
Onto night-time shenanigans and I’m sure you won’t need reminding that Mayrhofen is home to Snowbombing and comes with 5 star club credentials. During the week, Jack Beats, the award-winning DJ duo of DJ Plus One (Scratch Perverts) and Ben Geffin (The Mixologists) will be rocking the Arena Club and all SCUK Bashers are on the guest list. Throw into the program the legendary and irreverent SCUK Pub Quiz and you’ve a belting week dans la neige.
Naturally, as is tradition, the week will end with The SCUK Bash Dash – the last run on the Friday from the top mountain restaurant to the apres bar… get in!
