Are you young, courageous and do you want to learn to fly? So, what are you waiting for? Come and live the crazy experience with our Freestyle Pros at the “Drop in” Freestyle Day!
“Drop in” Freestyle Day – the new challenge

The new craze among the young is called Freestyle, which sees the number of fans grow every year. For teenagers, jumping, grabbing and doing other aerial performances has now become a cult. For this reason, Dolomiti Superski has widened its range for the coming 2009/2010 winter season, presenting the “DROP IN” Freestyle Day. In freestyler-speak, “Drop in” means the first approach to this fun speciality. “Drop in” is also the warning a freestyler shouts before launching himself onto an obstacle course in a snowpark. Everyone is warned he is setting off, and acts accordingly, to reduce risks. Teaching the Freestyle techniques and safety rules, respecting nature, this is the aim of the Freestyle Day. In cooperation with 22 ski and snowboard schools in the Dolomiti Superski district, fun days are to be had for the 12 to 18s, who wish to try an exciting new experience on skis or board, maybe even upside down.
From mid-January 2010 we’ll be off: twice a week it will be Freestyle Day in the 20 Dolomiti Superski snowparks, every Wednesday for those on a week’s holiday and every Saturday for the weekenders. So anyone looking for halfpipes, stairs, walls or rails can have fun, whether on twin tip skis or snowboard. Specialist Freestyle instructors will reveal the tricks of this new trade to groups of up to 10 kids per instructor, to guarantee the best learning methods. From 10 am to 4 pm, the day will be action-packed, making best use of the state-of-the-art snowparks. A day’s course costs 45.00 Euro per person – or, including Freestyle equipment hire, twin tip skis and snowboard from the event partner Salomon Sports, 69.00 Euro.
