Rookies are Checking in in Ischgl and Checking out the Park

The 2014 VÖLKL WORLD ROOKIE FINALS kicked off by welcoming the world’s best young snowboarders in Ischgl.

During the arrival day, the Rookies and Groms moved into their hotels and took it easy enjoying a perfect sunny day in the small Alp town – getting ready for some awesome days to come. This morning the young guns are testing the slopes in a training session. During the week, more than 110 riders from 24 nations will compete for the title of the World Rookie Champion 2014 in a WST 3 star slopestyle event.

Since the number of riders is that high this year, the qualifications will be held on 2 days – already today, the Groms are battling for the tickets to finals.
