The fest has been on since 2000 when it was first held at the French resort of Risoul as an après-ski nightclub promotional exercise tried out by Outgoing Ltd. The festival hasis known for its imaginative and humorous elements; traditional Austrian cultural references are embraced (like oompah bands, lederhosen and sausages) and given a slightly surreal twist. The event is also famous for giving those who come an alternative to flying. The Snowbombing Road Trip is not a race but a multicultural drive from the UK to Mayrhofen, involving collecting points en route, an overnight ‘pit stop’ in Frankfurt, and an arrival procession in Mayrhofen – which declares the event open. A must go.
