Premiere season continues in Austria as Stubai Glacier joins Hintertux with the park now open for business – and lucky us, we got to witness the opening first hand this weekend.
Sunshine on both Saturday and Sunday, as well as the new gondola drawing coos from adoring visitors and locals alike, made for a fully packed weekend. Rippers of all abilities headed up the mountain, with the Postland crew, Sane!, a heap of Horsefeathers riders and many more on the scene – and of course a whole heap of brands were on site with fancy 2016-2017 boards for people to take out and test on the hill.
Saturday kicked off proceedings with Sebbe De Buck helping to judge the DC Best Line comp on the medium kickers, while elsewhere ladies got a chance to tear around the mountain with Klaudia Medlova – and all the while there were spot sessions happening on the jib line and booters, chased incessantly by the assorted swarming media (Onboard included).
