Medals and mind-games are at stake as the world’s best freeskiers lay down their best runs and score points on each other at the Freeski World Cup on Stubai Glacier.
In 2016, Stubai Zoo played host to the first “Stubai Freeski Open”, a FIS Freeski European Cup. One year later, in late November 2017, Stubai Zoo Snow Park was the venue of the first Freeski World Cup event in Tirol. In 2021, Winter Olympic and X Games stars are heading to Stubai Valley again for the first stop of the new World Cup tour, for the fifth time in a row.
Last year, about 100 competitors from 20 different countries tried to compete for their chance at glory. In 2021, the world’s best slopestyle riders will again battle it out in thrilling runs. Qualifying for the Freeski World Cup Slopestyle competition starts Friday, November 19, 2021, followed by the finals being held Saturday at the Stubai Zoo Snow Park. The World Cup will be live broadcast by ORF1 Austrian Television and Eurosport on November 20, 2021.
