With the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY hosted by Blue Tomato, one of the most popular European junior snowboard event series is returning to the Zillertal again. With its unique combination of internationally recognised snowboard competitions and side events, the VÄLLEY RÄLLEY has been established as an important junior tour for young snowboarders. The event series will be held throughout the season and over a total of four weekends in the best snow parks of the Zillertal. It starts with the first tour stop on 16 and 17 December in the skiregion of Hochzillertal-Kaltenbach. Online registration is already open at https://valleyralley.at/ – spots are limited, hurry up!

Eleven years of Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY under the auspices of the Ästhetiker snowboard club. What began as a small, local snowboard tour is now one of the leading junior snowboard event series in Europe. The Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY combines first-class snowboard competitions, which are linked to the international points system “World Snowboard Point List” and “World Rookie Ranking”, with cool side events for the next generation. In addition, all tour stops count as Austria Cups of the Austrian Snowboard Association. Further information can be found at http://www.powdern.com.

At each of the four tour stops, participants collect valuable points in the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY overall tour ranking. And while the best participants in each individual event are honoured with medals, prizes and prize money at the award ceremony, the overall tour winners will be crowned the new “Kings and Queens of the Zillertal VÄLLEY” at the last tour stop on Hintertux Glacier. Zillertal Tourismus GmbH in particular, which unites all Zillertal mountain railways and tourism associations under one roof, has contributed significantly to the realisation of the VÄLLEY RÄLLEY as title sponsor from day one.

Ronald Felder, Managing Director of Zillertal Tourismus GmbH, is looking forward to this year’s tour: “Winter sports thrive on young, sport-loving people. We are therefore delighted to be able to welcome committed young talents to Zillertal again this winter season. The Välley Rälley is always an absolute highlight of the winter season and we wish all participants every success and all the best.”

Loyal partners such as Blue Tomato and Red Bull are also on board as active supporters of the snowboard tour. Last but not least, the suppliers Horsefeathers and Dana Beanies will ensure happy faces at all tour stops with many prizes and other benefits. With the support of the international snowboard associations of the World Snowboard Federation and the Austrian Snowboard Association, the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY has been expanded its international recognition in recent years. The event series offers up-and-coming athletes a springboard into professional sport. And many young participants from the early years already earned their medal at the Olympics or the Youth Olympic Games.
