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 2020, Winter Olympic and X Games stars are heading to Stubai Valley again for the first stop of the new World Cup tour.
In 2019, about 100 competitors from 20 different countries tried to compete for their chance at glory. In 2020, the world’s best slopestyle riders will again battle it out in thrilling runs. Qualifying for the women’s Freeski World Cup Slopestyle competition starts Thursday, November 19, 2020, followed by men’s qualifying on Friday, with the finals being held Saturday at the Stubai Zoo Snow Park. The event will be staged to comply with COVID19 pandemic spread prevention measures. The World Cup will be live broadcast by ORF1 Austrian Television on November 21, 2020.
