From Chile to Australia, from Bulgaria to Scandinavia, from the Alps to Japan to North America, the Black Yeti in the last 8 months rounded up the best young riders. Now is the time to fight for the prestigious World Rookie Champions titles, and win incredible prizes: wildcard to World Class Events, Trip to Chile and many tickets to next season Rookie Fest events. The program of 2017 World Rookie Finals, from April the 4th to April the 9th, will include World Snowboard Tour Slopestyle and Half Pipe contest.

 

Japanese super talent Kokomo Murase, who is only 12 years old, lead the girl’s squat after sending a Backside 360 Mute and a Frontside 720 Frontside grab over the two kickers and showing off with crazy skills on the rails. The top twelve females will be able to show their skills on the mountain once more in the Slopestyle finals on Sunday and shred for the title of the World Rookie Champion 2017.

Thursday was marked as training day for all riders. If the weather allows, the boys Slopestyle qualifications will go down Friday. The Halfpipe day, including qualifications and finals for both girls and boys, is scheduled for Saturday.
