Teams from The Netherland, Austria, Great Britain, Czech Republic, Romania, France, Italy and Chile landed in Monte Bondone, Trentino, for the first halfpipe event of the World Rookie Tour ever. In a perfectly shaped halfpipe, the event was not only an international meeting for young pipe riders but it offered a 4-days schedule training opportunity as well. The event program also offered the partecipants several lifestyle activities: film premiere, night walk in the mountain woods with torches, a visit to Trento city and a final sunset party on the top of the mountain hut “Cima Palon” with a night powder home-run.

The finals saw a high level of riding and English Courtier-Jones Lewis resulted the best male of the event, winning a ticket for the Protest World Rookie Finals in Ischgl, Austria, and an invitation to an “Entry-BoardTV Shooting” in Val Senales, Italy. French ripper Boris Mouton was the best male Grom while Diana Augustinova from Czech Republic won the women category obtaining an invitation to the World Rookie Fest 2013 in Livigno.
