Riders and pros from all over Europe, also this winter Mottolino gives good run for your money offering the only alpine snowpark with open obstacles of about 20 metres! The most important snowboard and freeski events are almost ready to start and highest-level riders such as Seppe Smits, Markus Eder, Christof Schenk and Ralph Welponer have met at Mottolino snowpark to give wings to their trainings, spreading adrenaline all around the ski area.
Seppe is an international snowboard star: Belgian Olympic athlete extraordinary talented, he revealed his skills just at Mottolino from the first edition of World Rookie Fest in 2006. No surprise then that he is an aficionado of its snowpark. Right now he is warming up on the 19 metres kicker in preparation for the X Games, Air & Style and World Championship, refining his best tricks with unique style.
The twin tips are making their way around the park with many prestigious names: Markus is by now a legend and Best Male Freeskier according to the Italian Freeski Awards 2014. Red Bull’s favourite as well as Seppe, the Italian Olympic athlete can be distinguished for his elegant freestyle. You can see him taking off on the L and XL lines at Mottolino snowpark together with his colleagues of the Italian Freeski Team. Christof outstood on Livigno’s snow structures in the last few years, flying over the towers of Nine Knights castle, while Ralph is following Markus’ footsteps becoming Best Rookie at the Italian Freeski Awards 2014.
Mottolino snowpark’s bigger lines have been prepared with care by the shapers team during holiday time, using the snow given to Livigno by Santa Claus over the past Christmas, added to the artificial one provided by the new snowmaking plant placed on XL line side. With 29 obstacles, the big lines area is composed of two jumps of 14 and 19 metres, and several jibbing elements such as butter boxes, flat rails, kinked butter boxes, sliding tubes e bank spines, just arrived from the German partner company Schneestern.
