Do you have a few questions? Hopefully we can answer them here, if not you can contact us by clicking on the link below.
IS A SKI/LIFT PASS INCLUDED?
For the packages a Saturday Ski Pass is included which you can upgrade to Sunday as well. A ski pass is not included in the Early Bird or normal festival ticket price, but there are options to add one if you would like.
IS THE FESTIVAL ALL AGES?
Present your ticket confirmation to a box office attendant and they can assist you. The Cash4Tricks competition and going up to Kitzsteinhorn for the opening weekend is of course open to all ages, though you will need a valid lift pass and the signature of your guardian to compete.
For the evening program though you must be at least 16 and have ID on you when you pick up your festival band. Please be aware some of our partner bars require you to be at least 17. Here is a link to the drinking laws in Austria.
WHEN WILL TICKETS GO ON-SALE?
Early Bird tickets are available now here.
IS THERE MUSIC ON KITZSTEINHORN AS WELL?
On Saturday there will be DJs playing up at the Glacierpark where the Cash4Tricks competition is held. This is where a lot of our festival goers end up so it is an amazing vibe up there.
CAN I ALSO COMPETE IN THE CASH4TRICKS COMPETITION?
We hope you do! The competition is open to everyone, you just have to sign a waiver which you can download here. Everyone at any level is allowed to compete against some of our local pro skiers such as Vokl Team Rider, Tom Ritsch, but stay safe! The judges pay out small cash prizes for any level of trick so best is to go for dialled in style - tweak it out don’t spin to win.

CAN I BUY FOOD / DRINKS INSIDE THE FESTIVAL?
Definitely! Multiple bars throughout the festival offer a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, plus some WOW specialties. A food stand is always near the entrance to the WOW mainstage area.
THIS IS MY FIRST TIME ATTENDING ... WHAT SHOULD I BE PACKING?
We suggest packing a good variety of layers so you're prepared for any possible weather - but it is a festival so make sure it is fun! The mainstage is in a specially built tent so we have no weather restrictions and it is warm in the bars, being able to take layers off is a must. A coat-check well be available at the mainstage and in Baumbar, other partner bars will have their own system.
YOU HAVE SKI TESTS UP ON KITZSTEINHORN - DO I STILL NEED TO HAVE MY OWN SKIS/SNOWBOARD
Yes you should. All the top brands will have a number of models of skis/snowboards for the coming winter season for you to tray out. They are only to test though and there will be many people who be wanting to try them out - so you cannot rock up and take them out for the entire day.
WILL THERE BE ATMS AT THE FESTIVAL?
Yes -- ATMs can be found all over Kaprun but it is definitely better in Austria to have cash with you when in the bars. You can pay by card but some bars will have a minimum amount.
CAN I CAMP?
You could if you want to, there is a camping ground in Kaprun - but it is the start of winter so will be cold!
I HAVE ADDED A SKI PASS, WHERE DO I PICK THIS UP FROM?
You can pick it up from the box office at the festival mainstage area when you trade in your ticket for yout festival band.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EARLY BIRD AND REGULAR TICKETS/PACKAGES?
Nothing beyond the difference in price. The early bird catches the worm ;)
