Saalbach-Hinterglemm! What? If you live in Austria or parts of Europe, you know exactly where it is. If you live in other parts of the world, perhaps you would like to visit there just so you can say you’ve been. Another reason to visit would be the opportunity to ski on some of the greatest slopes in the world; or to stay at the fabulous, five star ski resort Alpine Palace in luxurious accommodations; or because you always wanted a private helicopter for airport transfers; or because you wanted an invite to a Team PokerNews Party; or you wanted cash for travel expenses; or you wanted to play in the PokerNews Cup Alpine with a free €1,500 Main Event entry and a free entry to Event 4 €300 Pot Limit Omaha.
Just imagine taking all of those reasons and adding them into one big package; it’s like hitting a poker player’s dream jackpot.
Don’t pinch, you aren’t dreaming and the means to do it is waiting right at PokerStars in their PokerNews Cup Alpine Satellite Series. The series runs from January 22-March 8th and gives you the opportunity to compete for two guaranteed €6,000 PokerNews Cup Alpine Packages each week. The final week you’ll find the opportunity to win your trip increases when PokerStars features three guaranteed packages.
The opportunity to ski, party, fly, and play poker are available through $32+$3 sub satellites that run Thursdays to Saturdays and begin at 14:00EST. The sub satellites feature a guaranteed ticket to the final qualifier that begins on Sundays – also starting at 14:00EST. If schedules won’t permit or you can’t make it in through a sub satellite, you can directly buy in to the Sunday qualifier for $500+$30. Each Sunday qualifier features a two package guarantee and the final Sunday qualifier on March 8th guarantees three packages instead of two.
The PokerNews Cup is a fantastic tournament series held around the world and growing each year. This series of sub satellites and qualifiers is open to everyone. If you aren’t registered with PokerStars, take this opportunity to make a minimum deposit and receive our special bonus of 100% up to $50+weekly $2,000 Freerolls (note the weekly freerolls are only for a limited time). When you register, be sure to use Bonus Code ‘Stars50’ and Marketing Code ‘POKERWORKS’.

Now that you know all the details and have an idea of what Saalbach-Hinterglemm is all about, let the adventurous child in you out to play, take a seat at PokerStars and plan your trip.
