With the combination of Snowboard Pro Coaching Sessions, Ride Snowboards free demo/test center and the open slopestyle contest, every event in the series kept the great vibes going and happy shreds smiling. At all four tour-stops riders threw down their best tricks and were rewarded with mad-prizes, medals, prize money and stoke from fellow riders. From the Betterpark Hintertux to Betterpark Hochzillertal, to the Actionpark Zillertal Arena and the finals at the Vans Penken Park Mayrhofen, every snowpark in partnership with the VÄLLEY RÄLLEY showed off their perfectly shaped set-ups and great conditions.
Please take a few minutes and watch the overall video highlights edit and hope to see you next winter!
At the end of the tour, the final and overall point-winners were crowned Prince, Queen and King of the valley. Jan Rovensky took the crown of the inaugural prince of the valley and won a wildcard for the upcoming N.ASA World Rookie Finals. Ride snowboards team rider Martina Zollner was crowned queen of the valley. A local ripper from Mayrhofen by the name of Alex Walch ascended the throne as the very first King of the Zillertal. 7-year old Fabian Nehring was honored by the Ästhetiker with the title „Most impressive Grom of the Tour.“
A special thanks goes out to all the partners who made the inaugural Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY possible: Zillertal.at, Ride Snowboards, Leatherman, Red Bull, Hotzone.tv, N.ASA, Hintertux Glacier, Hochzillertal, Zillertal Arena, Mayrhofner Bergbahnen, all corresponding tourism associations and all the riders who supported this new event series.
