Rookies get ready because the next European stop of the World Rookie Tour will be for the very first time in Pila, Valle d’Aosta, Italy, for the Pila Rookie Fest by DEEJAY Xmasters from the 22nd to the 25th February 2018! The event will take place at the amazing Areaeffe snowpark of Pila, a beautiful freestyle terrain surrounded by the massive freeride mountains of the Alps. The park is situated at 2.200 meters and it offers 4 different lines for every level: Begginer, Intermediate, Big and Rail. Moreover, thanks to the wonderful high mountain environment, it is the best place to have fun doing some freeride. Indeed one of the activities that will be organized is a Freeride Safety Clinic aimed to enhance the knowledge about the mountain and about how to have fun safely.
“The beautiful ski resort of Pila and the city of Aosta will host the first edition of the Pila Rookie Fest by DEEJAY Xmasters, a great new event for the 2018 World Rookie Tour. The Pila Snowpark is amazing, with many obstacles for any level and an high quality pro-line, and it is in the middle of a beautifull freeride arena.” stated Marco Sampaoli, World Rookie Tour Co-Founder. “Also all the partecipants will stay in the same hotel, the same location where the event headquarter will be based, ensuring a great experience for everybody and a very easy general organization for all”.
“We strongly believed in youth projects and we are proud to host for the fist time a World Rookie Tour event in Pila” stated Davide Vuillermoz, Pila Ski Resort president and Italian snowboard pioneer. “We love snowboard and we invested a lot of energies in the development of the snowpark and the local freestyle community for many years, conquering the title of Best North-West Italian Snowpark in the last 2 season: we are ready to welcome the young rockers of the World Rookie Tour for a week of great fun”.
