Last weekend the Spring Sessions 2014 started with the DC Happy Hitster Hangout on the Stubai Glacier in the MOREBOARDS Stubai Zoo. Despite of not perfect weather conditions on Austria’s biggest glacier ski resort the spring feelings came up big at the DC Barbecue, at the Happy Hitster jam session, the afterparty and the goodies-and-cash-for-trick photo session. Thanks to some fresh snow and the creative work of the shapers the Stubai Zoo will be open for all spring shredders until May 18th 2014.

On Saturday and Sunday, April 12th and 13th 2014, lots of happy spring shredders came to MOREBOARDS Stubai Zoo to celebrate the start of spring at the DC Happy Hitster Hangout. Free BBQ, the whole range of the 2015 DC boards, a completely fresh shaped spring park, the sounds of DJ Salute and the whole Stubai Zoo crew were ready to open up the Spring Sessions 2014. And even that the weather didn’t really show itself from its best side and you couldn’t really feel that the start of spring was celebrated, the spring feelings of the DC Happy Hitster jam session participants and all other riders in the park could not be spoiled. Well fed and strengthened from the DC sponsored BBQ all Happy Hitsters gave 100% during the jam session on Saturday. At the end it was Mario Baio, Alex Strunk and Maurive Von den Steinen who split up the price money and scored the best DC goodies for their great and creative riding. On the fourth place – and therefore best girl – was Mine Sommer.

On Sunday it was not only the weather that was pretty grey at first but also the faces of the Happy Hitster from the afterparty with live music in the Dorfpub in Neustift on Saturday. But right on time when the grey clouds opened up the smiles of all shredders came back together with the sun shining so that there was nothing in the way for a super funny goodies-and-cash-for-tricks photo session. Cheered up by speaker Christian „Öfi“ Öfner the riders showed a trick firework that lighted up all hearts and minds. When the tricks that the speaker asked for were shown with some style, cash or cool DC goodies were handed over as reward so that none of the riders went home with empty pockets.

During the riders stepped it up on the medium and jib line, the shapers worked parallel on the kickers of the pro line that needed some fine tuning after the snowfalls on the days before. So now the Stubai Zoo presents itself with a medium, a jib and a pro line as such a huge spring playground as it can’t be found anywhere else. Everyone who doesn’t want to search for long and wants to have the best varieties, can find these perfect spring session conditions until May 18th 2014 before also the Stubai Zoo will go into its well deserved summer break.
