There’s nothing like an awesome sunny day, a perfect park set up and an incredible gang of excited young riders. The Corvatsch Rookie Fest has set the perfect scene for an exciting snowboard session among some of the best young riders in the world. S.Moritz has welcomed 50 riders, and the slopestyle course for the occasion was a blast, with a layout of 10 features: first jib set with a downrail box and a flatdown rail, 2 tables with 2 kickers each and a last jib set with wallride and 2 downrail.
Swiss ripper Gian Andrea Sutter scored best in today’s contest with a solid run. Second and third place for other two swiss: Elias Rupp and Florian Fischer. Also grom boys showed their best with swiss and italian riders on the podium: Nick Pünter from Switzerland, Milco De Feo and Alex Lotorto both from Italy.
In the girls’ competition Ariane Buri (SUI) took the first place in the rookie category. Ariane wins ahead of two other swiss riders, Babet Bischof and Anna Müller. On the groms’ side, Annika Morgan (GER) impressed the judges with her run, Lena Müller (SUI) and Livia Tannò (SUI) rounded out the podium as second and third, respectively.
