It´s “shred o´clock” again and the Zillertal Välley Rälley hosted by Ride Snowboards is ready to kick off into the new season on October 15th and 16th 2016 with the first tourstop at Hintertux Glacier. As every year, the popular Snowboard Amateur Series has plenty to offer and everyone can get involved! Just get registered at www.valleyralley.at and save yourself one of the limited spots. For all those, who can´t be bothered with waiting any longer, Andreas monEpic Monsberger has put an epic teaser edit together: https://vimeo.com/185614819 

It´s on again! High up on Hintertux Glacier, the winter has already arrived and the season is in full swing. Since September 9,th the Betterpark Hintertux has been open and Mother Hulda has reliably delivered the first loads of fresh snow to the Austrian Alps.

Hardly surprising, that also the Zillertal Välley Rälley hosted by Ride Snowboards is all set for take-off again! Looks like it´s time to reshuffle the pack and with the first of four tourstops, the popular Snowboard Tour will be starting into its 4th round on October 15th and 16th in Tux-Finkenberg.

On the Coaching Day, teams from all over Europe will be gathering at the Betterpark Hintertux to celebrate and share the stoke of snowboarding. All those, who are not bringing their own coaches, can easily sign up for the freebie Freestyle Coaching Sessions with the Ästhetiker crew, all riders, age groups and levels welcome! Ride Snowboards will not only offer the latest snowboards and bindings for free demo/testing, but also bring the “Limbo RIDE” for everyone to the Zillertal. A funny session, where you get to try the limbo dance while riding your snowboard and it´s the bar that brings up laughter and spice! The most agile snowboarders will be rewarded with prizes by Ride Snowboards, of course.

The Contest Day will not only bring an open Snowboard Competition to Hintertux, but also start a new chase for the first valuable points in the Välley Rälley Overall Ranking. All competitors will also be gaining points in the World Snowboard Tour Ranking. As every year, the Välley Rälley counts as a part of the Austria Cups by the N.ASA, New Austrian Snowboard Association. All the stage winners will be celebrated as kings and queens in the tried-and-tested Ästhetiker way in front of a great audience and of course, they will take home lots of medals, glory, honor and prizes from Ride Snowboards, Red Bull and Greenroom Mayrhofen.

Neben kostenlosen Snowboard Test bringt Ride Snowboards dieses Jahr erstmals mit dem Limbo RIDE eine lustige Session für alle in den Betterpark Hintertux. Dabei ist der Spaß schon vorprogrammiert, denn es geht darum, wie beim Limbo Dance unter einer Stange herzufahren. Auf die beweglichsten Snowboarder warten natürlich jede Menge Preise von Ride Snowboards.

Am Contest Tag geht es dann beim offenen Snowboard Contest nicht nur um die ersten Punkte im Välley Rälley Gesamt Tour Ranking, sondern auch um Punkte im World Snowboard Tour Ranking.

Bowl & Rock JÄm 2016


Text: Chelsea van der Merwe & Peter Sandner


Mayrhofen, Austria – Saturday, September 3rd 2016 – Aesthetikers’ sixth time running annual Bowl & Rock Jam session was a massive success taking the event to an unprecedented level.

The day started off with a kids jam session, with almost 20 kids in attendance. Wolle Nyvelt, Oli Gordon, Steve Gruber and other dedicated riders were there to offer their advice and provide the kids with invaluable coaching. The commitment was evident with the determination of the kids in the bowl, but it was outmatched by the grins on the faces of the coaches as they skated alongside the groms. Kids provide happiness, that’s for sure, and these future rippers and coaches had the time of their lives. “It’s awesome for these kids who grow up doing this and have the opportunity to learn these skills, and to utilize them in their future” Brian Wolfe, a proud father who was in amongst the coaches and kids teaching his daughter how to push and pump.  


A tombola raffle stand was new to the jam this year with the Aesthetikers once again, thinking about and doing things for others by raising money for the kids’ workshops. Providing the future generations with the skills, experience and opportunity to be involved and to live amongst the boardsport lifestyle.

Things were done a little differently this year, leading straight to the contest with 21 riders competing in total. Several heats with 3 riders per heat that lasted a strenuous four minutes. Each skater was given an introduction run to showcase their skills and give the crowd a teaser. The quality of the riders and the tricks including the runs that they were pulling made it a tough job for the judges, therefore they were forced to pick 9 riders and then sift it down to 6 finalists. With the tricks for cash session included, it was almost too much to handle. Boards were banging, riders were pounding concrete with bail after bail from going big in attempt to land that one trick, it was a zoo in the bowl and it was more than fantastic. Michi Nadler coming in first place. Followed by Lorenz Schneider second, Joscha Aicher third and 3 riders Oliver Gordan, Roman Astleiner and Gregor Senfter sharing fourth place.  Roman Astleitner claimed the Best Trick with his buzzer beater transfer from low end into deep end



After the award ceremony at the Waldfestplatz, the Ästhetiker Bowl & Rock Jam continued with its musical component. The BlackBones were the opening act of the rock night, on a stage where big names such as Prodigy or Kasabian have performed in the past. The guys from the Innsbruck area, now living in Vienna, got the crowd fired up immediately with their psychedelic rock. The diverse show featuring technical highlights certainly drew several new fans to the band centered around the lead singer Moritz Kristmann. We expect to see more of the BlackBones in the future!


This was followed by punk rock at its best: The Mugwumps, well-established in the Punk scene since 2002, showed how powerful good Punk is and always will be. No pussyfooting around: one-two-three, one smashing Rock’n’Roll song after the other was played, and the audience honored it with some bold dance interludes. Last but not least, Sempre Caoz from Zillertal hit the stage as headliner. There aren’t many bands in Tyrol that throw out such energy and life in live performances as the local heros from Zillertal. Their shows are like a volcanic eruption of Rock’n’Roll, emitting lava composed of Blues Rock, with Alternative and Punk influences. The music is timeless and at the same time contemporary, and one wonders why this band is not better known beyond the valley and province borders. In any case, the Rock Night at the Waldfestplatz was an incredibly successful event organized by the traditional Ästhetiker Bowl Jams. Let’s hope that this event will take place again next year.

Bowl n’ Rock Jam 2016 Sponsors include: Dickies Life, Scotland Yard Pub, Mountain Sports Zillertal, Red Bull, Sportclinic Zillertal, Mayrhofen-Hippach im Zillertal, GreenRoom.at, Sparkasse Schwaz AG, Simpl Life Company, Stock Resort, Vans, Billabong, Dakine, MUCKEFUCK skateboards, K2 Snowboarding, Motion Sports, Eisenbacher, Sporer, Zillertal Bier  and  Zillertal Sennerei.


Here a quote from Michi Nadler “Bowl & Rock JÄm Winner 2016”


Ästhetiker events are always a special happening for me because no other skate event gives you this layed back atmosphere and at the same time doesn´t lack of professionality.

Maybe its the fresh high mountain air in the valley, the fresh water they have in their one and only "Zillertal Bier" or just the super layed back and friendly people.....I don´t know?

I guess its all together, that gives you the special feeling and hypes me personally every year to come back and rock the bowl till i cant walk anymore!

The "Aftershow Rock party" with dope local live bands was a great add on and should be retaining on the future events!


It was real FUN and brings people from all kind of flavors together!

What more can i say?

Big shout out to all the long time Ä-crew members still making all this happening, all these years!!!


Never stop your passion!!!

Skate or Die!

See ya all next year!!!!
