With 625 KM’s of pistes, Austria’s steepest piste, a 3286m glacier AND an award-winning terrain park, Snowbombing offers a winning combination of great slopes and electronic and indie music.

Many have described Snowbombing as a unique experience, with the combination of skiing and music which draws a variety of people, from skiing enthusiasts who love music to beginners who also love music.

Year on year the festival expands, with 2011 reaching a capacity of 6,000 effectively doubling the population of local town Mayrhofen.
