What is a Freeride Cross? The name itself puts together two different spheres, from off-piste natural terrain features, to ski cross and boardercross serial courses: breaking two schemes brought to a brand new discipline, the union of a naturally occurring terrain featuring artificial snow obstacles. Starting from ‘Valfin’ chair-lift arrival, the Freeride Cross is a 1.2 km long path with amazing cambered turns, lateral jumps, snow and ice tunnel, step-up – with higher landing - and step-down, but also breathtaking funboxes for everybody, until the arrival just over Camanel di Planon mountain hut.
Competition is just one side of this jewel born especially to meet the purest fun between freeride and freestyle, following ‘Mottolino Fun Mountain’ philosophy: starting gates and speedometer are set to challenge people’s limits and get beyond. The course feeling respects anyone’s riding and skiing level, starting from beginners, who will experiment the typical cross adrenaline with the touch of truest mountain peculiarities, such as lovely powder turns and step-down soft landing.
