The program includes events around all possible Freeriding disciplines, such as ski, snowboard, telemark, ski-alp and as well as entertaining and educational activities for both beginners and experts. Business to business highlights will make the event an attractive happening for shops, industries and media.
With an extraordinary 5-days-program, everyone is welcome to celebrate the world of Freeriding in the breath taking resort of Livigno, also known as the ‘Italian small Tibet’.
