No matter if it’s kids, rookies, amateurs, girls, pros or legends, everyone can get involved in the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY hosted by Ride Snowboards. Individuals can drop-in on their own category, regardless of whether their freestyle career begins with this event or they have paid past dues holding old trophies from back in the days, gathering dust in a glass case.
At all events the participants earn points for the tour ranking and the overa ll tour winners will be awarded after the final tourstop, when a Prince, Queen and King of the VÄLLEY will be crowned.
The final event will happen in late February at the Vans Penken Park in Mayrhofen followed by the finals party where the overall tour winners will be crowned and celebrated.

Alfred Dorfer live in Mayrhofen
thus far – solo
Alfred Dorfer in person
The title hints at what is to come: In „thus far – solo“ Dorfer not only looks back on his own biography with regards to „My best years“ - which would never provide enough material to fill an entire evening!
He sets his sights a little higher and ponders on contemporary history; things forgotten, repressed, remembered and new.
Alfred Dorfer is one of the most well-known cabaret artists and comedians in Austria, not least due to his commitment to numerous Austrian film productions. After initial success with the group Schlabarett he attained more widespread recognition as the writer and star (alongside Josef Hader) of the film Indien. He takes us on a skip down memory lane, throwing together his eclectic experiences in a (fictive?) biography. "Thus far - solo" is therefore not your standard "Best of"; but - as we have come to expect from Dorfer - a stand-alone act full of cheerful nihilism.
He drags us on his journey as a single minded search for clues as a passionate thinker and critic, a satirical trapeze artist and melancholy philosopher on life. Süddeutsche Zeitung on Dorfer: "He is one of the most talented and highly diverse amongst his German colleagues“.
Only Snowbombers are in on the secret - this is so much more than just music and snow: Performances from world-class acts in unique venues; from a sky high igloo, to an enchanted forest clearing. Now in its fifteenth year, Snowbombing is regarded by many as, "The Greatest Show on Snow". Mystical. Musical. Without equal!
