The long wait is over and it was worth it: The weekend of 30 November to 2 December 2012 is all about the Stanton Ski Open, which traditionally heralds the official start of the season at St Anton/Arlberg. The Stanton Ski Open with its XXL programme for sport & music fans marks the beginning of a fantastic winter 2012/13 season at the Arlberg in Tyrol!
The programme is jam packed with Christmas, musical and sporting highlights:
Two local comedians invite to a musical trip around the world on Friday night, when the Vorarlberg comedian, entertainer & piano-man Markus Linder meets Tyrolean folk musician, singer & accordion virtuoso Hubert ‘Hubsi’ Trenkwalder. Together they take off on a serious – but not always deadly serious – search for the roots of popular music culture. Start of this trip around the world is at 8pm in the WM Hall in Arlberg. Admission is free!
The ‘Ö3-PistenBully’ is out and about on the ski areas all day on Saturday and he’ll introduce the latest dance hits to the visitors whilst they are taking their first turns on the slopes or the party scene. The Bully makes a big appearance on Saturday night at the Rendl base station with his mega Ö3 PistenBully party.
All the must-have equipment of the winter season can be admired and tested during the free of charge Ski & Snowboard test.
Whether celebrating late into the night at the Ö3 Party or enjoying the ambiance of the Christmas market – create your own magic at the Stanton Ski Open 2012/2013.
