Everything is set for the World Rookie Fest Finals in Kuthai, Austria, from 14-18 March, 2007. In this event the rookies will challange for the “World Rookie Champion Title” owned by well-known rider Christian Haller from Swizterland… and there will be also be some tickets to TTR events for the winner: last season Christian was admitted to the rookie session of the Air & Style thanks to this title!

Organized by N.ASA (new austrian snowboard association), the Kühtai World Rookie Fest Finale will be the final event of World Rookie Tour 2007, with a TTR 3 Star Slope Style assigning the title of World Rookie Champion 2007. 550 TTR points and a ticket for a main TTR event will be on offer for the winner. Other WRF 2007 events will be in Korea and Livigno, Italy. All WRF are reserved for riders, male and female, born after 31 August 1988.

The program of Kühtai WRF includes an international slope style contest, avalanche & rescue clinics, social dinners, meeting with an international team manager and a prize giving party. Teams from 15 different nations will be attending, so expect a high level of riding.

Thanks to the cooperation with Kühtai, the Pro Snow Park will be reserved for the rookies for the entire competition. The slope will consist of many jumps and rails and some secret extra features! As with last year’s event, every rider will have the possibility to express his top level in this premiere european park.
