As a result of the extended lockdown in Austria, the 8th Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY hosted by Blue Tomato and Ride Snowboards comes along with postponements and cancellations. The first event at Penken Park Mayrhofen will be postponed to Easter Weekend on April 3rd and 4th, 2021. Both March tour stops at Hochzillertal-Kaltenbach and Zillertal Arena are cancelled. So the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY will go down in 2021 with two instead of four events. The great final is set for April 24th and 25th,2021 at Betterpark Hintertux on Hintertux Glacier.
Since eight years, the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY, that is organised by the Ästhetiker Snowboard Crew and hosted by Blue Tomato Ride Snowboards, has been touring across the Zillertal. The popular snowboard amateur series unites several tour stops in one overall ranking. Every event comes along with a training and coaching day and a slopestyle competition day. Due to COVID-19, only two out of four events will take place this season. The first stop at Penken Park Mayrhofen has been postponed to April 3rd and 4th, while the finals stay set for April 24th and 25th, 2021 at Betterpark Hintertux on Hintertux Glacier. While Penken Park Mayrhofen is already open for training with a full setup these days, Betterpark Hintertux will come back to life on April 10th, 2021 for the upcoming spring season.
With both contest results, athletes accumulate points in the Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY overall ranking. The overall Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY 2021 tour winners will be rewarded new Royal Zillertal VÄLLEY RÄLLEY family at the final stage in Hintertux.
