The second edition of Pila Rookie Fest started in the best way possible and welcomed many young guns from Italy, France, Romania, Russia, Finland, England, Iceland and Poland.
Areaeffe snowpark was perfectly shaped and rookies and grom had the opportunity to test the setup which consisted of a down rail, a donkey rail, a up rail, a shoot out (pull jam) and three kickers (medium and big).
In the afternoon riders took part of many lifestyle activities such as the visit to Fénis Castle near at Aosta to get in touch with Valle d’Aosta’s culture and the welcome party where they could rest and know each other.
