On November 26 the time had come again: The RWTH Aachen University Sports Center (HSZ) welcomed participants to the international ALMA Snowevent in Landgraaf. There, students met to take on the slopes and enjoy a relaxed Après-Ski evening together in the Skihütte.


Participants from the Euregional universities – RWTH Aachen University, Université de Liège, Maastricht University and Universiteit Hasselt (ALMA) again heeded the call of the mountain in the SnowWorld Landgraaf. For many years now, the ALMA Snowevent has stood for snow fun on the piste as well as skiing and snowboarding courses and the chance to push one’s boundaries in the SnowWorld Fun-Park. The special thing about ALMA, however, is that besides to skiing and snowboarding it gives participants the opportunity to exchange with students from other countries in a relaxed atmosphere.

Whether beginner or expert, performance level is not important. Demand for the various courses for beginners and advanced courses was great, as students wished to get back into it before the start of the winter season proper. Those who got a taste for skiing in Landgraaf can take part in one the many winter sports courses of the University Sports Center (HSZ). And for those for whom that isn’t enough, the HSZ provides the opportunity take on real mountains on extra tours to Europe’s top winter sports destinations. Registration for these is already open.
