SPLIT DAY AOSTA VALLEY 2019
Also this year we are ready to welcome you here in the Gran San Bernardo valley for the SPLIT DAY AOSTA VALLEY, an unmissable event for fans and for those who want to discover the splitboard world.
Present at the appointment were the “ambassador” professionals of the leading companies in the sector Ettore Personnettaz (K2-Snowboards / Spark R&D), Davide Capozzi and Alfredo Canavari (Furberg), the Alpine Guide Patrick Raspo (Amplid), snowboard instructors Luca Spoladore, Luca Bastia and Leonardo Patrucco: a proven team that will accompany you through curiosities, tips, images and videos, without forgetting the exclusive presentation of the book just published by Ettore Personnettaz “Freeride and Splitboard in Aosta Valley – Stories, hints, itineraries” .
Those who participate will have the opportunity to try the splitboards of some of the best international brands on Sunday:
The splitboard tests will be distributed while availability lasts by sending an email directly to Ettore (firstname.lastname@example.org) providing the following data: gender, height, weight, number of soft boots, goofy or regular stance.
The material supplied includes everything necessary except for telescopic poles.
There will still be the possibility of renting further splitboard boards, always contacting Ettore thanks to the collaboration with the SWITSHOP store in Aosta.
FREERIDE SAFETY CAMP
In the afternoon of Saturday 14 December, from 15:00 to 17:00 there will be the opportunity to participate in the exclusive Camp to learn the basics of self-rescue and practice with the necessary tools (Artva, Probe, Shovel) with the Alpine Guide Patrik Raspo. The cost will be 10 euros per person.
