Top-level riding at Stubai Glacier, Austria: The world’s best snowboarders are pushing each other to perform at the Stubai Prime Park Sessions 2017. The second session at Snowpark Stubai Zoo is in full effect as the stars prepare themselves for the Olympic winter at Stubai until November 22, 2017. Many of them are already in contest mode, as the results of the Snowboard Big Air World Cup in Milan, Italy, showed on Sunday: Five of the six female and male riders who took to the podium trained at Stubai before!
More than one metre of fresh snow made for great conditions during the first session of the Stubai Prime Park Sessions last week. Many top riders practiced their runs for the Olympic season on the gigantic, perfectly shaped kickers of Stubai Zoo. The snowboarders’ contingent included the US team, who crowned their successful training with triumph. Chris Corning, Redmond Gerard and Kyle Mack took the first three slots at the FIS Big Air World Cup in Milan last weekend. Some of the female snowboarders who currently train at Stubai were also victorious in Italy. Anna Gasser (AUT) and Katie Ormerod (GBR) took first and second place!
Riders like Scandinavian super stars Marcus Kleveland (NOR) and Ståle Sandbech (NOR) as well as 4-time X Games winner Max Perrot (CAN) have come to Stubai for the second session this week.
The Highlight Edits of the first session and the daily updates on the Stubai Prime Park Sessions social-media channels show that international top riders are getting plenty of action at Stubai Zoo. They are fine-tuning their tricks and extending their repertoire, in order to be perfectly prepared for the upcoming crucial World Cup events in which they can qualify for the Olympic Games. Chris Corning (USA) improved his Quads, Vladislav Khadarin (RUS) stuck several 1800s, and Anna Gasser (AUT) took female snowboarding to the next level with solid back-to-back Doubles on the big kicker line.
