Yesterday Stubai glaicer entertained a real madness. Stubai Zoo presented the replica of the Billabong Air & Style kicker. The almost similar takeoff, table and landing. We are talking about perfect conditions to warm-up runs and check the last tricks before Billabong Air & Style at the Bergisel Stadium on 05.12.09.
German parkdesigners Schneestern made a great opportunity for riders to familiarize with the conditions. Almost the same kicker and perfect weather conditions gave riders opportunity to start with even more self-confidence into the contest on Saturday.
Everything went great! But a day before on Teusday Schneestern confronted with major impediment. 70 cm of fresh snow. While some of us were having fun in pow pow, Schneestern shapers were sweating and trying to rebuild the kicker. And they made it! Big up to bros from Schneestern!
Riders like Seppe Smiths, Marko Grilc, Sani Alibabic, Gigi Ruf, Marc Swoboda, Eero Ettala, Peter Konig and Co. showed that no matter how big is the kicker they can throw any trick the crowd wants to see it. Going switch, making double flip, doble rodeos or corks, even big spins with double grabs, all that and even more was just a piece of cake for the present riders. The whole Stubai glaicer was holding breathe while riders were having fun.
We were also delivering LIVE streaming over these two days, but don’t worry, if you missed any it is still possible to rewatch our videos. Check what was going on and join our SnowBroader community. And don’t forget to come back, because a short movie is also coming in few days. First you will be able to see it on Saturday at The Soundclash Party in Innsbruck after the legendary Air & Style. So be there!
