About the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY hosted by Blue Tomato: Eleven years of Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY under the auspices of the snowboard club ‘Die Ästhetiker.’ What began as a small, local snowboard tour is now one of the leading snowboard events in Europe. The Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY offers young athletes a platform to test their skills against their peers. Today, the snowboard tour serves many young snowboarders as a springboard into international professional sport. The competitions are held in the Olympic discipline ‘Snowboard Slopestyle’ and are linked to the international points systems of the ‘World Snowboard Point List’ and ‘World Rookie Ranking’. In addition, young people under the age of 18 have the chance to win a coveted wildcard for the World Rookie Tour Finals every year. All tour stops also count as Austria Cups of the Austrian Snowboard Association.
