Fresh snowfall means the park is fully locked and loaded for this weekend’s MOREBOARDS Stubai Premiere 2012. Get yo asses there…
The recent snowfalls that dumped their load on central Europe’s higher peaks over the last few days has meant the Stubai glacier shaping crew have had plenty to work with and have been able to finish off a fully constructed park for this weekend’s season kick-off event, the MOREBOARDS Stubai Premiere.
60 centimetres of fresh snow have come down on Stubai Glacier early this week! Since Monday, the shape team has been working day and night on the construction of the snowpark. Just in time for the start of the big Park Opening Event this Friday, 19.10.2012, the setup will be ready for shredding in full size. Not only the big kicker line, but also a huge number of rails, boxes and smaller jumps on the medium and pro line will be in best shape all weekend long as well as the stairset right by the brandsaloon.
Pros like Jed Anderson (USA), Gigi Ruef (AUT) Elias Elhardt (GER), Arthur Longo (FRA) and Kevin Backstrom (SWE) are already looking forward to three sick days at the MOREBOARDS Stubai Zoo and three crazy nights out at different parties in Neustift in the Stubai Valley. Will you be there, too?
