Take the new 3S Eisgrat gondola to the Stubai Premiere on 22/23 October and take advantage of the chance to test all the new gear in the epic Stubai Zoo park and surrounding terrain.
The 2016/2017 winter season got underway at the Stubai Glacier at the end of September, so now it’s time for the Stubai Zoo – one of Europe’s leading snow parks – to open for awesome sessions. Fresh snow has just fallen in the last days – the best conditions for launching the park season with a great event are met: on October 22 and 23 the eighth edition of the legendary Stubai Premiere will be held in Austria’s biggest glacier skiing area, featuring numerous events for snowboarders. And there’s another premiere: the brand new 3S Eisgrat gondola is due to go into operation for the very first time.
At the perfectly shaped Stubai Zoo at the Gaisskarferner, three lines are available for open sessions as early as Friday October 21 – for professional, advanced and beginner riders. But there’s more to look forward to over the subsequent two days than just kickers and rails: in addition to wild parties, there’ll also be lots of side events as well as the Brand Saloon at the Eisgrat mountain station. At the latter, 40 brand names from the snowboard sector display their latest products for the season and make them available for free testing.
Anyone who can’t wait to get started should be sure to book one of the popular packages right away. Accommodation and the lift ticket can be booked at the unbeatable price of EUR 107 at www.stubai-premiere.com.
These are the most important side events you should definitely not miss:
