We at Blue Tomato want to pass on our passion for our sport and also give kids the opportunity to carve up the snow for the first time. Our goal is to enable even the littlest ones to experience the amazing feeling. That's why, together with our partners, we offer a series of events for the youngest generation. From camps to an extra kids tour to contests, it is all here.
Blue Tomato Kids Tour and Kids On Snow
Together with 'Kids on Snow' there is the 'Blue Tomato Kids Tour' in 3 different locations. Last year it was a great success and this year we want to again give children between the ages of 7 and 15 years old the opportunity to take part. In January and February you will be invited to a jam packed snowboard day in Schladming, Stuhleck and Söll. You can register here.
As a foretaste of what's to come, here is the recap video from last year.
