Just like in the past editions, the Black Yeti is on his mission again to travel the 5 continents and shred with the best rookies of the world in an international events series to search for the next snowboard star.
Each event programme will combine freestyle contests, in slopestyle and halfpipe disciplines included in the TTR World Snowboard Tour, with many other lifestyle activities offering a unique experience for all the partecipants.
Yesterday the 3rd edition of the Trentino World Rookie Fest in Monte Bondone, Italy opened with a training session that included the likes of more than 68 riders from 10 nations.
A perfectly shaped slopestyle course and a superpipe welcomed the rookies and groms, who tested the features in the morning and then got a taste of the italian culture by visiting Trento and its science museum and then ended the day at the snowpark for a sweet night session. Friday and Saturday will see the slopestyle and halfpipe contests.
