5Hits Vol.2

Second issue for 5Hits, our journey inside snowboarding: another spot, some new faces and some old Alone Collective muzzles.

This time we went for a local spot but also a well renowed and historic cradle of Italian snowboarding: Prato Nevoso.
The slopes here cut in the very middle the city and stay in a sort of bowl, on a lower altitude than the actual town.

At Prato Nevoso you can also admire one of the biggest snowboard collection in the world, as well as have a beer with living pieces of Italian snowboard history.
The snowpark now is under the Matteo Ferraris control, who groomed, improved and reinvented the Bardonecchia snowpark for years before moving here.

There is a real special mood in this spot, really nice and friendly people, real night movida and the only spot I know with a night bar in the right middle of the snowpark!

Some mandatory thanks goes to Gherry, the park chief, who feeded us and helped us along the way.

See ya in a couple weeks with brand new 5hits!
