The events taking place in the Stubai Valley in winter bring together people from all over the world. Not only guests and spectators will be from different countries, the participants of the first FIS Freeski Worldcup Stubai at the Stubai Glacier and the ensemble of the ski and dance performance GAIA – Stubai Mother Earth will add multi-cultural flair to the winter destination in the heart of Tyrol.

Oktoberfest flair and World Cup atmosphere at the Stubai Glacier
This season as well, the traditional starting signal for the event winter at the Stubai Glacier is given by the Ski Oktoberfest “Weisse Wiesn” on 14 and 15 October 2017. Right after that, the free skiers and snowboarders will again populate the Snowpark Stubai Zoo and celebrate the occasion with the ninth edition of the Stubai Premiere from 20 to 22 October 2017. The absolute event highlight will be the FIS Freeski World Cup Stubai. For the first time ever, the FIS Freeski World Cup will be held in the Snowpark at the Stubai Glacier from 24 to 26 November 2017. It will be the first FIS Freeski Worldcup of this winter in Europe, and the next to last chance to qualify for the Olympic Winter Games 2018.

Local Schuhplattler groups meet Czech fire in the Skiing Centre Schlick 2000
The ski night show of Schischule Stubai and the Skiing Centre Schlick 2000 presents itself featuring lots of fire and colours. From 27 December 2017, the slope at the Froneben intermediate station is transformed into a colourful stage on occasion of the “Night of Colours” eight times. Ski instructors carry Bengal lights and fire, snowboarders, trick skiers and motocross riders fly courageously over an illuminated ski jump, snow cats perform a graceful choreography including fireworks, and the young Schuhplattler group “Die jungen Daunkogler“ merge traditional with modern elements in their show. They will be supported by a group from the Czech Republic that will create fascinating moments with a light, laser and fire show. Finally, a night tobogganing event will provide a fun ending.

The Night of Colours takes place on Wednesdays on the following dates:
27 December 2017, 3 January 2018, 7 February 2018, 14 February 2018, 21 February 2018,
28 February 2018, 7 March 2018 and 14 March 2018

Sled makers from Italy, Germany and Austria meet at the Elferbahnen resort
At the Stubai Valley’s tobogganing mountain, the Elfer in Neustift, the three ultra-long nature sled runs can be put to the acid test on occasion of the 3rd Tobogganing Testival on 12 and 13 January 2018. On these two days, everything up and around the Elfer is subject to sled testing, tobogganing races, lotteries and all the fun you can have on two skids. Leading international sled makers from Germany, Austria as well as from Italy present their latest models and innovations in the Expo area at the Elferbahnen Valley Station, rent out sleds and provide valuable hints on their handling.

GAIA – Stubai Mother Earth: Spanish passion for the Stubai Valley
A success story continues on 1 February 2018 in Neustift in the Stubai Valley, when the renowned director of the dance company at the Tyrolian National Theatre, the Spaniard Enrique Gasa Valga, transforms the ski slope in Milders/Neustift again into a fulminant nature stage for ski, dance, music, show, and multimedia 3D-Mapping on occasion of the show GAIA – Stubai Mother Earth. In 2018 spectators may again look forward to a spectacular production of the show that was awarded the Tyrol Touristica Award in 2017.

“GAIA - Stubai Mother Earth is a love declaration to Tyrol and the Stubai Valley“, describes Enrique Gasa Valga his prized libretto. „I am delighted that the production was so well received. Therefore we will again tell the story of GAIA in 2018. Art is evolution, and that enables us to newly assess core elements. The challenge will be to achieve the same success as last year and transport the spectators again on a fantastic journey into another world.”

In order to achieve this goal once more, the organisers rely on the abilities of the skiers and snowboarders from the Stubai Valley again as well as on the excellently trained dancers from Italy, Albania, Brazil and the Czech Republic.

Tickets are already available for advance booking and can be acquired under www.gaia-stubai.com.
