O'Neill King of the Park

Internationally-renowned riders in search of glory will tackle the amazing structure designed by the acclaimed Roberto Moresi, The slopestyle competition is once more, just like last year’s, is part of the
Ticket to Ride – 3 star series of events.

This invitational event will see the participation of a number of top international and national riders. The 2007 edition will introduce a major, exciting change in the programme. The first day (January 12th) will see the inauguration of the Open competition. This event will be open to anyone wanting to try their hand at the sport with the best three ‘amateurs’ permitted to compete against the top riders in the main competition the following day. The top riders will judge and cast their vote to decide who joins them in the main event.

Other partners include: FIAT Freestyle team, once more lending their support to the Italian snowboarding movement; Red Bull, organisers, with Iuter, of the January 13th Party (see programme) and suppliers of the entertainment; and the local administrative bodies:the Veneto Region, the Belluno provincial administration,
