The first edition of the 2019 World Rookie Finals Freeski is getting closer and Seiser Alm is looking forward to seeing and hosting the future pros of freesking.
From the 18th to the 21st of March the most prominent athletes and the winners of the previous stops in USA, Italy and Austria, and the best skiers of the official national qualifying series in Europe, will have the chance to compete in the amazing Seiser Alm snowpark, on the same premium slopestyle facility of the FIS World Cup, built by F-Tech, one of the best shapers’ crew in Europe.
The prize money of this event follows the path of the World Rookie Tour philosophy: every prize was developed in order to support the carrier of the most talented athletes of the event and help them to become tomorrow’s stars of freeski.
First of all, the 2019 World Rookie Tour Freeski Champions, male and female, will be invited to join to the legendary Audi Nines, which will be held in Sölden, Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, Austria, from April the 22nd to April the 27th 2019.
Moreover, the strongest skiers will be awarded with prestigious prices offered by the WRT sponsors and partners such as: invitations to the World Rookie Tour Shooting to be held in Les 2 Alpes, France, from the 10th to the 13th of July 2019, an invitation to the Rookie Trip in the South Hemisphere, 6 surf trips to Santander by SurftoLive.com, and many goodies by Level Gloves, TSG Protections and FATCAN poles.
Furthermore, the male champion will be invited to join the Völkl Freeski Team with an official rookie sponsorship program to support the beginning of his professional carrier and the best groms will win a sponsorship by FATCAN.
However, the program of the 2019 World Rookie Finals freeski will include not only the slopestyle contest but also also many lifestyle activities such as social dinners, and the “Knödel” and the “Schuhplattlen” workshops where rookies and groms will get in touch with the South Tyrol culture and learn how to make a traditional dish and dance. The event program also includes a final party and a photo-shooting day to create the typical taste of every World Rookie Tour event.
Last but not least, the World Rookie Tour establish an end of season important partnership which will increase significantly the 2019 World Rookie Finals prizes: all the 2019 rookie champions, snowboard freeski, male and female, will be awarded with a personal spot for the 2019.20 FIS World Cups.
