Also non-participants of the Zillertal Välley Rälley will get the chance to test the latest snowboards and bindings by Ride Snowboards for free at the Snowpark in Gerlos or just drop in for the Limbo RIDE, a fun “under the bar" limbo session and rake in goodies from Ride.

The Contest Day will be all about the crown, since the penultimate tourstop will be bringing up an indicatory change in the Overall Välley Rälley tour rankings. We´re expecting an exciting competition among the teams on the Uniqueparks.com setup in Gerlos. While all the stage winners will be celebrated amid the applause of the crowd, the best trick earns a complete snow outerwear outfit for the Billabong best trick award. Last, but not least, the “most impressive grom" out of all grom categories will be honored in front of the Välley Rälley family.
