Since October 24 the absolute highlight of the preseason has been going off on the Stubai Glacier: The Stubai Prime Park Sessions. Enjoying perfect weather and snow conditions so far, the world’s elite snowboarders will continue to hone their skills for the coming season until November 21, pushing themselves to new levels. Triples are on the daily plan, and quadruples have already been thrown as well.
For the past two weeks the “Who’s Who” of the snowboard scene have laid waste to the Stubai Zoo park as well as the custom-built Prime Line at the Stubai Prime Park Sessions. The two Prime kickers with 22 and 25 meters offer optimal training possibilities for the crowd of pros, giving them the possibility to prepare for the coming contest season. The atmosphere on the mountain is awesome and the contingent of international riders, as well as their level, is simply hard to beat.
In particular world-elite riders from Scandinavia have made the journey to Stubai, including shredders like Alek Østreng, Peetu Piiroinen and Silje Norendal. The entire USA team is also present, whose crew including Eric Willet and Chas Guldemond have been unpacking new tricks while having a hell of a time riding the Stubai Glacier. Eric Willet could be overheard saying that he finds the park phenomenal and that it’s the best pro park he’s ever ridden in the fall.
