Legendary Park Set-Up And Program For The 2016 Oslo Rookie Fest

The Black Yeti is getting ready for an amazing action sport week in the World Winter Capital. From 26th of 28th of February 2016, Oslo will host the Norwegian stop of the World Rookie Tour happening parallel to the X Games Oslo.

Contest for snowboarders under 18 years from all over
Registrations for the Slopestyle contest are currently dropping with Rookies confirmed from Norway, Finland, Iceland, Switzerland and Netherlands. Until 20th of February, shredders aged under 18 have the chance to save a spot in the competition.


Huge park set-up

For this season, the Oslo Winterpark shaper crew has created a park set-up as it has never been witnessed in the ski resort before. An enlarged line in Wyller enables the  freestylers to push limits and for the Rookies to progress their trick skills. The newly designed rail line following the massive kickers will set the scene for creative and stunning runs during the contest.

Oslo Vinterpark

Action sport on snow all weekend long
After training and competition, the Rookies can experience the X Games Oslo feeling by watching the pros during their world class competition AND by joining the “Next X” activity, one of the various activities of the Oslo Winter Festival. The whole Oslo Vinterpark will turn into an action sport playground which the Rookies can enjoy all weekend long. Snowskate sessions are also on the agenda as well as an action photo workshop at the rail park (and many more activities)
