The winter season is initiated and the Wir Schanzen also got the ball rolling. A lot has been going
on – there are new events, a good deal of price money and most diverse contest formats. On 24
November 2012 the starting shot is given at the Stubai Jam in the MOREBOARDS Stubai Zoo /
Call it a relaunch! The Wir Schanzen offers snowboarders an attractive platform to compete with like-
minded shred heads and showcase their skills to the public. In its ninth season the contest tour arrays
itself in a new outfit and emphasizes the features in the case of fresh ideas.
Stubai Jam means Slopestyle Jam Session
First innovation – with the Stubai Jam on Stubai Glacier the tour starts earlier than ever before into the
season on 24 November 2012. The TTR 2 star slopestyle contest is held in the most-loved jam session
format. On diverse jibs it gets right to the point but the main focus concentrates on the kicker line of the
Moreboards Stubai Zoo. Riders who snatch a podium finish can be glad about a lot of price money – there
is a total of 1.000 euros as well as further prices of Ride Snowboards to win.
Sajas Park Games, The 5ive Barbecue & Co.
For the slopestyle contest „Sajas Park Games“ the tour moves to the Nike Snowpark Montafon on 12
January 2013. In new terrain you find a versatile snowpark with long lines and diverse obstacles which
make hearts leap for joy. On 16 February 2013 „The 5ive Barbecue“ presents itself in a completely new
light – shred on a sick rail setup till all hours! One more surprise event with an individual format will be
announced in the next time.
Official junior tour
This year, the Wir Schanzen contests are held in the category snowboard as well as freeski for men,
women, rookies U15 (year 1998, 1999, 2000) and kids U12 (year 2001 and younger). A particular kids line
is shaped for the quite young riders at all events. With its goal to promote talent the Wir Schanzen is
supported by the Snowboard Federation Germany. In close cooperation a special kids day with coaching,
photo shooting and more is held each Sunday after an event. We care for the kids!
In the context of the tour there are 5.000 euros to win –not to forget quality material prices from the sponsors and
requested World Snowboard Tour ranking points – because after an one year break all tour stops are registered
as TTR 2 star events once again. Of course, in the well-known manner of Wir Schanzen contests the relaxed
atmosphere always comes first. The participation fee amounts to 10 euros and for another 10 euros you can buy
a lift ticket for a greatly reduced price. Registrations can only be made on the ground.
