Quite a few snowboarders had sent their videos in but only the best 16 of them were able to snatch one of the treasured spots for the Rookie Camp.

The Camp from 8th-10th August will try to prepare the youngsters for life as a professional snowboarder. The Swiss Fiat Freestyle Team with Nicolas Müller, Romain de Marchi, Anne-Flore Marxer and 2007's rookie Mathieu Schaer will look after the riders personally

Participants will receive extensive coaching: next to professional training on the glacier, there will be various workshops to prep the rookies on behavior towards the media and handling of sponsors, plus they get an insight into the daily life of an established snowboarder.

Now it's all about using those three days to convince the Fiat FreestyleTeam pros - only the best rookie can make it in the team...!
