German Magdalena Eglseder wins Freeski World Rookie Fest in the women's category


At the sixth Freeski World Rookie Fest in the Nordkette Skyline Park high above Innsbruck, the young talents once again put in impressive performances. The slopestyle competition is part of the international World Rookie Tour, which has been offering young riders a springboard and a stage for their first contest experience since 2005. 45 freeski talents between the ages of 11 and 17 from Europe will be competing on the Nordkette for titles in two age categories and for tickets to the big World Rookie Tour final in Madonna di Campiglio. Bright blue skies, spring-like temperatures and the fantastic view of Innsbruck ensure a great atmosphere among riders, coaches, parents and friends in the Nordkette Skyline Park. The man of the day is 15-year-old Benjamin Lengger from Carinthia, who takes all the titles: he secures first place in the rookie category and can call himself Ski Austria Junior Champion Slopestyle 2024. His run also secured him the award for the best "back to back" trick combo: right cork 9 blunt on the first jump, switch double cork 9 safety on the second jump and 270 on continuing 270 off on the rail feature. Raphael Natter (AUT) from Vorarlberg wins in the younger age group!
