With its unique combination of snowboard freestyle coaching, style sessions and internationally recognised snowboard slopestyle competitions, the VÄLLEY RÄLLEY has established as an important tour for young snowboarders. Today it represents a springboard for up-and-coming talents into international professional sport.

What a start to the season! It couldn't have been better! Just in time for the 1st Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY tour stop 2023/2024 hosted by Blue Tomato, the Betterpark Hochzillertal was glowing with a first-class freestyle setup in bright sunshine. Over 100 participants had travelled from all over Europe to the first holiday region in the Zillertal to participate in this season´s first VÄLLEY RÄLLEY event of the popular snowboard tour. The conditions on Saturday were perfect and many participants took the opportunity to practise for the competition. In addition, the Ästhetiker Style Session was held for the first time. The main focus of this new session formate was mainly more on "style" and less on “spin to win.” At the end of the day, Jascha Nunez from Austria was delighted to receive the Ästhetiker Style Award.

On Sunday, international teams finally put on a snowboard show of superlatives in the battle for the first podium spots of the open snowboard slopestyle competition. Lots of medals, prize money and goodies from partners like Zillertal.at, Blue Tomato, Horsefeathers and from Lowe Alpine and Rab Equipment awaited the winners of the eight categories.

Fynn Koenen from Team Germany caused quite a stir with his "BS 1260 K-Point" and not only secured the much-coveted Horsefeathers Best Trick Award, but also the gold medal as the best snowboarder of the entire competition of all male participants. In the ladies' category, the reigning Queen of the Zillertal VÄLLEY, Laura Záveská from the Czech Republic, remained unbeaten and took a well-deserved victory in her age group "Rookie Girls" (16-17 years) as well as in the open competition for all female riders with plenty of style and airtime. In the rookie boys' category, high-flyer Lenny Fenning from Great Britain was delighted to take first place.

Dmytro Luchkin from Ukraine not only won the gold medal in the Grom Boys (13-15 years), he also came third overall in the Open Class and shook the hand of runner-up Petr Ershov from Russia on the podium. The Belgian Sky Remans secured a well-deserved first place in the Grom Girls (13-15 years). In the youngest category, brothers Gustav and Ricco Nawarkiewicz-Wisniewski from Poland took home gold and silver medals in the Super Grom Boys (U12 years), while Adèle Vankerschaver from Portugal won the Super Grom Girls contest. 5-year-old newcomer out of the Shredmasters team, Ben Huang impressed all spectators and participants with his solid first ever competition performance and was crowned the "most impressive grom" of the 1st tour stop by the Ästhetiker.

Martha Schultz from the Hochzillertal-Kaltenbach ski centre is delighted with the successful kick-off event: "Thanks to the Ästhetiker team! They are professionals at work! Events of this kind are very important for winter sports and for our kids and young people - they convey fun in the great outdoors and the young people measure their skills together."

The first of four contest results marked the start of the hunt for new VÄLLEY RÄLLEY points in the Hochzillertal-Kaltenbach ski region. The overall tour winners will be crowned the 11th Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY royal family in spring 2024 on Hintertux Glacier. Points on the international World Snowboard Point List (WSPL) were also awarded for participation and the tour stop counts as the ASA (Austrian Snowboard Association) Austria Cup.

On the 29th and 30th of April 2023 the great tour finals of the10 th Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY hosted by Ride Snowboards and Blue Tomato went down in the Betterpark Hintertux at Hintertux Glacier. Over 100 young snowboard talents travelled from all over Europe to Tux-Finkenberg for the last tour stop of the popular Zillertal Snowboard Amateur Series. After all, it was all about the crown at the grand finale! In addition to the tour stop winners, the new Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY overall tour winners 2022/2023 were finally crowned the new Kings and Queens of the VÄLLEY for the 10th anniversary of the popular event series.

 

Just in time for the great Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY final, Betterpark Hintertux was ready to rumble with its XXL set-up. Wille Kaufmann and his Betterpark Shapeteam had conjured up a great setup for all ages and skill levels for the 4th tour stop of the popular snowboard amateur series, where the youngest participants were 4 years old. Due to uncertain weather conditions, the competition was held on Saturday.  

 

At the end of a successful day, it was Laura Zaveska from Czech Republic who took the victory in both, her age group in the Rookie Girls (U18) category and also in the open class of all female participants. Sam Smits from the Netherlands finished in 1st place in the Rookie Boys contest. He also made it to 3rd place in the open class of all male snowboarders and was subsequently got crowned Overall King of the Zillertal VÄLLEY 2022/2023 by the Ästhetiker for his solid performance all over the winter. Winner of the Open Class was his teammate Bart Poll, also from the Netherlands.

 

In the Groms (U 15) category it was Dmytro Luchkin from Ukraine who was more than happy about the gold medal and thus second in the overall ranking additionally won a silver medal. Anna Tomanova from Czech Republic climbed the podium in the Grom Girls class in first place, which also put her in 2nd place in the open class ranking and made her the Overall Queen of the VÄLLEY after four successful tour stops. 

 

In the Super Groms (U12), Marie Kuhlmann from Team Germany was delighted with her 1st place. She had thus won all four competitions over the season and was crowned the new Queen of the Zillertal VÄLLEY in her age group. High-flyer Tibbe Keizer from the Netherlands was delighted with his first place in the Super Grom Boys contest.

 

Joewen Frijns from Belgium earned the Horsefeathers Best Trick Award with his "270 FS BS 450.” With an thoroughly first-class performance over the season, he then happily accepted the award as the new Overall King of the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY. Finally, the young Matyas Krejci from the Czech Republic was voted "most impressive grom of the day" by the Ästhetiker judges.

 

"Hosting a competition with over 100 participants in one day on the glacier is a challenge," says Pia Schroeter from the organising team. "That's why we are even more pleased about the smooth running, special thanks to the first-class support of the team from Hintertux Glacier." Rudi Kröll from the Ästhetiker organising team adds: "The riders field now includes participants from all over the world. We are proud to have created with the VÄLLEY RÄLLEY on today's 10th anniversary in Hintertux, the leading junior series and the most important stepping stone into professional sport for young snowboarders of all nationalities."

Successful 2nd tour stop of the 10th Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY in the Zillertal Arena in wintry conditions

On 21 and 22 January 2023, the 2nd Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY tour stop hosted by Blue Tomato & Ride Snowboards took place at the Actionpark Kreuzwiese in the Zillertal Arena. More than 70 participants from all over Europe took part in the second event of the popular Zillertal Snowboard Amateur Series in Zell am Ziller. With its unique combination of snowboard freestyle coaching and internationally recognised snowboard slopestyle competitions, the VÄLLEY RÄLLEY has grown over the last decade to become the leading snowboard freestyle amateur junior tour in all of Europe.

 

Winter is finally here! With fresh powder, the 2nd Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY tour stop celebrated its debut on 21 January at the Actionpark Kreuzwiese in the Zillertal Arena. Many young snowboarders took advantage of the official coaching & training day on Saturday to celebrate their first turns and jumps in deep, fresh snow. At the open slopestyle competition on Sunday, 22 January, teams from Finland to Spain fought an exciting battle for the first podium places. Lots of prizes, medals and of course prize money and valuable overall points awaited the winners of all 8 categories.

Joewen Frijns from Belgium caused a sensation with his "Frontside Blunt 450 out", earning him the Horsefeathers Best Trick Award, while 6-year-old York Kim from the Netherlands was crowned "most impressive Grom of the dÄy" by the Ästhetiker judges as a VÄLLEY RÄLLEY newcomer in her very first ever snowboard competition. As the best male snowboarder, Linus Margreiter from Austria won the contest in the class "Overall Men." In the girls' category, Romy Van Vreden from Team Netherlands showed the best performance in the Rookie class and thus took the gold medal in one go as the best female participant of the contest in the category "Overall Women." In the Rookie Boys (16-18 years), Elias Hamalainen from Finland was delighted with his victory, also picking up the silver medal in the Overall Men. Viktorie Zvadova won the Grom Girls (13-15 years) ahead of her twin sister Sara Zvadova, which put both of them right behind Romy in second and third place in the overall women´s ranking. In the Super Groms (under 13 years) contest, Marie Kuhlmann from Team Germany took the victory again and Matyas Krejci from the Czech team stood at the top of the podium in the Super Grom Boys.

The shapers from the Zillertal Arena are happy about the successful event: "The Zillertal Välley Rälley has once again brought the young stars of the snowboard scene to the Actionpark Kreuzwiese. Thanks to the Ästhetiker team and the kids who took part - we're looking forward to next year!"

The Actionpark Kreuzwiese in Zell will now remain open until mid-April and will be shaped daily. Every Tuesday the Zillertal Arena offers free freestyle coachings with the Ästhetiker Shredschool. The meeting point for the coaching sessions is always Tuesdays at 11.00 a.m. at the tipis in the park.

With the second of four contest results, the cards have been reshuffled in the Zillertal Arena. The new overall tour ranking can be viewed at valleyralley.at. The overall tour winners will be crowned the new Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY royal family after the fourth and last tour stop in April at the Hintertux Glacier. Points on the international World Snowboard Point List (WSPL) were also awarded for participation. The tour stop also counted as the ASA (Austrian Snowboard Association) Austria Cup. All rookies (U18) were able to add credits to their World Rookie Ranking points account.  More information is available at www.valleyralley.at
