SnowFest 2023 - Innsbruck

After the successful SnowFest Innsbruck premiere last winter, there is great news from the creators of Rock A Rail Snowboard contest and its counterpart, the DownTown StreetSki contest, as they announce a tour with three stops in Europe. The new setup was tested last weekend at Freestyle Roots in Thun in Switzerland (Oct. 13-15) at the very first stop. Benny Milam (USA), Rachida Aoulad (NED) and Valentin Morel (SUI) took home the wins. Coming up next is SnowFest Innsbruck, taking place from November 24th – 26th. The tour concludes with the SnowFest The Hague from December 8th – 10th.

FREESTYLE ACTION – The 37 m long, 17 m wide and over 10 m high scaffolding with a unique urban set-up is the centerpiece of all three stops. The snow ramp features progressive obstacles and rails and is truly a creative playground for freestylers from all over the world! The best jibbers on one and two boards mix with Olympic and World Champions to amaze the audience.

ROCK A RAIL SNOWBOARD – The Rock A Rail success story began in The Hague in 2011, the initially local Rail Jam has grown over the years into an international in-city Snowboard contest with thousands of fans. The return to The Hague after a break is a special one, as it’s the 10th anniversary of Rock A Rail at Grote Markt in the center
of the city. A true milestone, which is also reflected in the design of the setup, which has been revised for 2023 to celebrate 10 years.

DOWNTOWN STREETSKI – The first edition in 2022 in Innsbruck was an explosive show of crazy tricks. The streetskiers are looking forward to the opportunity to unpack their tricks in the three cities on the same setup as the snowboarders. Expect an illustrious field of riders.

SNOWFEST – The Snowboard and Freeski contests are part of the SnowFest, which offers easy access to various winter sports for young and old. In the Winter Sports Village in Innsbruck and The Hague, local sports clubs and associations invite everyone to get to know their sport, find out more and try it out directly onsite. Whether on snow, on the mat or on the simulator. Free entry!
