Big Air Bag @ World Snow Day | 22 January 2012
100 Event Participants
Despite the unfavorable weather and strong winds, which on Saturday did not allow to install the BigAirBag, however Sunday was a beautiful day and the initiative has been a great success. There were at least 100 participants, boys and girls, young people and others, skiers and snowboarders, who performed spectacular stunts.
From 10 am until late afternoon, the participants have followed one after another in an attempt to pull off a jump ever tried before, or that the fear of injury has never allowed.
The BigAirBAG is a spectacular event that attracts the interest of more snow enthusiasts, particularly snowboarders. For this reason, the ski resort of Monte Cimone will continue to invest in it, thinking for the future to expand the event with further proposals.

On January 21 and 22 the Freeride Tour will stop at Passo del Lupo around the Big Air Bag. The annual national event, came to its sixth edition, attracts young snowboarders and freestyle skiers, but also all the ski and winter mountain lovers in general, offering them a village within which to withdraw and try products, gadgets and prizes. All the guys that jump will be well equipped with a mini-camera GoPro, designed precisely to shoot sports action, which will project the images of the evolution on the giant screen on the track.
