After a one-year break, the Snow Event will finally take place again on November 2, 2021, at the indoor ski hall SnowWorld Landgraaf. This year, the Snow Event will be held together with the ALMA Snow Event. The University Sports Center (HSZ) invites winter sports enthusiasts to a sporty evening.


With the Snow Event in Landgraaf, the HSZ traditionally rings in the winter semester. Both inexperienced and experienced winter sports enthusiasts are invited to participate together in various courses and workshops. The ALMA Snow Event is an international event of the university sports facilities Aachen, Liége, Hasselt-Diepenbeek, and Maastricht. This year, both snow events will take place on the same date.

Qualified instructors will supervise different courses in skiing and snowboarding. Courses for beginners will take place from 8pm to 10pm. Due to limited course capacities, prior registration is required. Advanced skiers can participate in the workshops without prior registration.

After more than a year, the Snow Event is the first event of the HSZ after the Corona break. The HSZ is excited to be able to offer this event again to students and people interested in winter sports.

The HSZ will provide a shuttle bus service between 6pm and 7:15pm for students to arrive together. A private journey is also possible. The return journey with the shuttle buses will take place between 11pm and 1am.

In order to ensure the safety of all participants during the pandemic, the basic event concept has been adapted. The event character now automatically moves into the background and one concentrates on the sports and the courses. The 3G-regulation applies. Participants who are vaccinated, tested, or recovered are allowed to participate in the event. Checks will be carried out on site.

The pre-sale started at the beginning of October and was a great success. The event is already sold out.
