Snowbombing in Mayrhofen.
I’m the Troublestarter.
pop quiz: the lyric above is from what song and artist? clue: 7 year old violin player, young chess genius; grab the matches.
I’m a bit too old to do a “week-long whirlwind of world class DJs and bands” that is Snowbombing, but I know someone who isn’t.
Thanks to Matt, even though he is a boarder, for this video. His first big adventure to Mayrhofen in Austria for Snowbombing in 2014.
Mayrhofen is our favourite ski resort and you’ll find us there most seasons. So, maybe we’ll stick around for a few days next Spring to sample a bit of Snowbombing. Maybe I’m not too old for that!
In 2020, the week what was to be Snowbombing (Mon 13th – Sat 18th April) was during the worldwide lock-down. Instead, the World’s Greatest Show on Snow went virtual. They delivered an eclectic array of live streamed shows powered by Kopparberg and supporting the National Emergencies Trust (NET). I suspect Snowbombing will be back bigger and better in 2021, sign up now.
pop triva: “I’m the troublestarter” is the opening line from Snowbombing headliner, The Prodigy’s 1996 classic – ‘Firestarter’; can a track like ‘Firestarter be classed as a classic?!
