From October 24th to November 20th 2015 the Stubai Prime Park Sessions on the Stubai Glacier offered ideal training conditions for the world’s best freeskiers and snowboarders for the upcoming international contest season. An extremely relaxed atmosphere, the perfect weather throughout almost the whole time and the progressive setup of the Stubai Zoo, which was praised to the sky by the riders, made these four weeks unforgettable for all the athletes.
Sebbe de Buck for example summarized his time at the Stubai Prime Park Sessions as follows: “Thank you for an insane month with perfect jumps, good weather and awesome peeps.“
As for the snowboarders, the creme of the crop of the scene gathered at the Stubai Glacier to show tricks of the highest difficulty imaginable and with a huge portion of style at the Stubai Zoo. Above all the Scandinavian snowboard-elite who came to the Stubai Prime Park Sessions with riders like Marcus Kleveland, Aleksander Østreng, Ståle Sandbech and Silje Norendal. They enjoyed their time at the Stubai Glacier to the fullest and were pushing each other to new limits each day. Swedish team coach, Jocke Hamer, summarized their time at the Stubai Prime Park Sessions as follows: „It’s been the best training camp I’ve ever been to.“ The fact that 16-year-old Marcus Kleveland stomped his first Quadruple here is also proof that this year’s setup was outstanding. Olympic champion Sage Kotsenburg also had very good things to say about the setup: “I claim it the perfect jump.”

The freeski pros from all around the world were no less stoked by the Stubai Prime Park Sessions and showed every day anew what’s possible, if you provide them with a perfect setup.
