2016 Trentino Rookie Fest: Monte Bondone

Black Yeti will come back for the 5th time in Monte Bondone, Italy, for the 2016 edition of the Trentino Rookie Fest. One of the most successful event 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 sportive side of the event include the Slopestyle Contest, to get qualified for the 2016 Volkl World Rookie Finals in Ischgl. Unfortunately this year the luck of snow didn’t allow to build the halfpipe, but in addition will happen a Night Rail Jam in “Cash for Trick” format to awards the best street riders!

Moreover many side activities will fulfill the event program: film premiere about the 2015 World Rookie Tour, Night Photo Shooting, and a touristic 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 love the Trentino Rookie Fest and we love them too. This is a unique event in the World Rookie Tour, in which fun, relax, good food and touristic attractions meet competitive freestyle snowboarding.” stated Marco Sampaoli, WSF Vice-President and event organizer. “The event grow 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”.

About TTR Pro Snowboarding & World Snowboard Tour
TTR Pro Snowboarding is a non-profit organization that oversees a professional network of events and athletes. Our objective is to develop and showcase the sport of snowboarding through the World Snowboard Tour, while facilitating a fair and open competition environment that includes innovative judging and ranking systems. We encourage riders to develop from rookies into world-class athletes through a 6 Star level rating system; which will be replaced by a new 4-tiered structure from October 2014. Under the new World Snowboard Tour 2.0, the 4-tiered structure will encompass Elite, International, National, and Regional event levels. Elite events will comprise the WST Pro Series (current working title). The Regional, National, and International levels of the WST 2.0 will make up the WST Qualifying Series (working title).
