The huge setup awaiting the riders in Livigno is the ultimate hybrid of a kicker feature and a halfpipe. It will undeniably test the world's best freeski athletes and ensure the progression of the sport. The two kickers open up massive transfer options with jumps of up to 40 meters. The last obstacle at the end of the halfipe is a rarity; the 15m long and 6m wide full-pipe feature will allow riders to get creative. Soon we will know who can do the loop in the full-pipe.
