With the MOREBOARDS Stubai Premiere, the snowpark on Stubai Glacier in Tyrol, Austria, opened the doors for another winter season from October 19th to 21st 2012. With bluebird and bland temperatures, everyone was having a blast shredding, testing and celebrating all weekend long. Good times!
From October 19th to 21st 2012, three days of action were going down on
Stubai Glacier in Tyrol, Austria. Beside the brand-new hardware out of the
Brandsaloon, all kinds of sun protection were at a premium this weekend. No
wonder with three days of sunny skies and decent temperatures!

All three days, the brandsaloon at the Eisgrat mountain station was full to
bursting and everyone was in good spirits, testing the hardware of 40 brands
for free, sunbathing and chatting with friends or shredding the staircase in
the DC Jib Garden. German rider Chris Boehnke took first place on the podium
of the DC Jib Garden Battle on Sunday, followed by the two Slovenes Andrej
Marinic and Nejc Ferjan in second and third place.
Volcom Snake Pit
On Saturday, the Volcom Stubai Snakepit took place with thirty competing pro
and amateur riders. Elias Elhardt (GER), Peter König (AUT), Denis Leontyev
(RUS) and Jesse Augustinus (NED) obviously had fun on the special setup
consisting of a banked slalom followed by a jib feature. Finally it was Marc
Swoboda (AUT), who convinced the judges with his combination of a
race-fitting slalom technique and a perfect switch backside lipslide on the
down rail. Frenchman Arthur Longo became second and previous year´s winner
Simon Pircher (AUT) climbed the podium in third place.
Apart from that, it has been kind of intense at MOREBOARDS Stubai Zoo all
weekend long. Salomon pro rider Chris Grenier came travelling from the
United States to shred the park together with the kids. A vast number of
riders attended the Skullcandy Trick Sessions or the Billabong Surpize Jam
and raked in some cash and prizes. It was great to see that everyone was
having a good time back on snow again.

What may not be missing on a weekend like this? Exactly, the parties! The
party weekend started with the Forum Warm-Up Party on Friday night. Two
nights with acts like the Mando Diao DJ Team, Nasty Mondays or the Drunken
Masters, were enough reason to celebrate every night until early morning.
Many thanks at this point to Four Seasons Travel, who have been shuttling
all artists for the shows. In the light of recent happenings, our thoughts
are with our friends from Forum Snowboards. The Warm-Up Party with ?#Forum?
