From April 12th to May 18th 2014 it’s gonna be a hot affair in Austria’s biggest glacier ski resort – the Spring Sessions move into the MOREBOARDS Stubai Zoo and invite all riders to shred in a top park with comfortable spring temperatures. Right on time for the opening event and the highlight of the season, the DC Happy Hitster Hangout on April 12th and 13th 2014, the park setup will be extended to its maximum size again and guarantee all shredders lots of fun and variety.
Spring Sessions 2014 – that stands for a top prepared MOREBOARDS Stubai Zoo, sunshine and shredding for entire six weeks. From April 12th to May 18th 2014 the whole snowboard and freeski scene will meet again in Austria’s biggest glacier ski resort just outside the gates of Innsbruck to extend the winter season a little more and to feel the special spring camp flair in the park. On time for the Spring Sessions the MOREBOARDS Stubai Zoo will be upgraded again with the pro-kicker line that draw worldwide attention during the Stubai Prime Park Sessions in the fall of 2013. But as not only pros should get their money’s worth, the number of obstacles in the easy and medium line will be increased to its maximum again. On about 3.000 meters above sea level snow is guaranteed on the Stubai Glacier till middle of June. Because of the southward orientation of the Gaisskarferner glacier and the snowpark, the sun will be shining all day and will not only make the landings soft for the riders who want to learn new tricks, but it also invites you to relax and soak up some warm sunbeams.
DC Happy Hitster Hangout
This year the Spring Sessions will already start with the event highlight of all spring: On the opening weekend from April 12th to 13th 2014 DC Shoes invites you to take part in the Happy Hitster Hangout. In a funny contest format the riders have to demonstrate and prove all their creativity. The park setup will be expanded with numerous take- offs so that the Happy Hitsters will have endless opportunities to vary their runs. The snowboarder whose creativity stands out most and who can convince the other participants best with his or her riding, will win the biggest part of the winners pot which is filled up with a solid price money of 1.500 euros.
Everyone who does not want to enter the Hitster contest-fry, can just relax in one of the deck chairs in the park base to work on their skin tan and just have a good time with free drinks and barbecue. In addition to that, DC Shoes will provide everyone with the newest snowboard hardware to test. And even when the lifts are closing, there is no end in sight: On Saturday, April 12th 2014 it’s gonna be a straight line from the gondola to the Afterparty in the Dorfpub in Neustift.
