For the fourth time in a row, the Zillertal Välley Rälley hosted by Ride Snowboards took over the best snowparks of the Zillertal Valley between October 2016 and March 2017. Here's some of the highlights from the winter's shredding, captured by Mone Monsberger...

Four tour stages, four exciting snowboard competitions, freebie coaching sessions and demo/testing of the latest snowboards, tons of prizes, many happy day podium winners and a delighted new royal family, followed by a great bunch of enthusiastic snowboard fans – that's, what the Zillertal Välley Rälley is all about! In 2016/2017, Ride Snowboards scored with the Limbo Ride and Highest Ollie fun contest and the new tour partner Billabong brought up fresh highlights with free avalanche trainings for everyone.

The number of riders beat all previous years' records and for the first time in Välley Rälley history, parents, coaches and friends could show off at the final tourstop by joining the Mayrhofen Penken Fun Ride Battle presented by Billabong, while the probably youngest tour attendees ever tried their first freestyle moves in the mini-shred coaching. The new Zillertal Välley Rälley Royal Family 2017 got crowned and celebrated in old Ästhetiker manner at the Scotland Yard Pub.

A special thanks goes out tot he partners of the grassroots tour for keeping it Älive: Zillertal.at, Hintertuxer Gletscher, Hochzillertal Kaltenbach, Zillertal Arena, Mayrhofner Bergbahnen, Ride Snowboards, Red Bull, Billabong, N.ASA, Greenroom Mayrhofen, Dana Beanies and Black Eye.

After the season is before the season and we are already looking forward to the Zillertal Välley Rälley 2017/2018! Andreas MonEpic Monsberger has put the golden moments of 2016/2017 together for you in a great edit.
