Monte Bondone, Italy will host this rookies’ International Slopestyle Contest & Night Rail Session from 2-6 March 2016.

The Black Yeti will come back for the 5th time to Monte Bondone, Italy, for the 2016 edition of the Trentino Rookie Fest. One of the most successful events in the World Rookie Tour will be focused on an incredible program including slopestyle competitions, night rail session, a visit to the beautiful town of Trento, and lifestyle activities such as the “Crazy Bob Race” and a night walk in the woods. A trip to discover Trentino, not only a competition, for a great experience with a lot of entertainment for all participants.

The on-hill side of the event includes the Slopestyle Contest, to get qualified for the 2016 Volkl World Rookie Finals in Ischgl. Unfortunately this year the lack of snow didn’t the halfpipe to be built, but instead  a Night Rail Jam in “Cash for Trick” format will go down to awards the best street riders!

Moreover many side activities will fulfil the event program: film premiere about the 2015 World Rookie Tour, Night Photo Shooting, and a tourist trip to Trento to visit the old town, “Buonconsiglio” castle and enjoy some shopping. Typical Trentino food, nice hotel with swimming pool, night walk in the woods, the “Crazy Bob Race” and a great final party on Saturday night will ensure great time as well.

“The city of Trento and Monte Bondone loves the Trentino Rookie Fest and we love them too. This is a unique event in the World Rookie Tour, in which fun, relaxation, good food and tourist attractions meet competitive freestyle snowboarding,” stated Marco Sampaoli, WSF Vice-President and event organizer. “The event grows every year with more participants and with additional activities in the program to ensure a great event in the same infrastructures of the latest Winter Universiadi,” he continued.

The 2016 Trentino Rookie Fest slopestyle contests are included in the World Snowboard Tour and will offer all inclusive tickets and qualification spots for the 2016 Volkl World Rookie Finals in Ischgl.
