Didi Hasse, this name must sounds familiar to you. Didi is an 80’s ski icon: moguls, KL, Telemark… Cheerful and optimistic this man is a pioneer.
In 1993, he set up Snowlegend at La Grave. Snowlegend is offering ski, snowboard and telemark camps. This very particular French resort is definitely not your regular ski resort. Located in the Hautes Alpes, l’Oisans is the largest massif in France. La Meije may not be the highest mount (3986 meter) but has the most impressive change in altitude : 2150 meters.
Rossignol has been working with Snowlegend for years, offering freeride skis’ and snowboards’ test. The test center is for everyone.
If you want to have a great spring ski session go check La Grave, it’s opened until May 3rd. Snowlegend is located right in front of the cable car’ start.
The Rossignol team shaped a monster kicker in l'Alpe d'Huez; Xavier Bertoni, Kevin Rolland and Arnaud Kugener just got back. So did we with some pretty sweet pictures in our pockets. This footage will fill next season' Rooster TV episodes.
We wanted to make it big; action taken from the helicopter, from a paraglider and a bunch of great camermen working together at the same time.
Season 's almost over but Kevin is still riding and shooting double flips...somewhere...les 2 Alpes someone told me. Go catch 'em.
Kevin could practise his double rotation and show us that he’s not only a half pipe world champion…
Watch and enjoy !

Straight after La Plagne' HalfPipe Worldcup finals, our two favorite Rossi riders Kevin Rolland and Xavier Bertoni flew to Laax. Yes sir! One the greatest freestyle event in Europe was on last week-end.
Laax' European Open is really fat, 5 days straight, top riders smash a superpipe and a slopestyle. 50.000$ Prize money, interesting.
After La Plagne quiet runs, Xavier Bertoni really rocked qualification' runs; 1st place, classy. Judges wanted Kevin Rolland to slide from classy to ashy; he ended 7th and did not go through semi-finals. Nothing went wrong it's just judges randomness.
Finals came up then and Xavier ended up 2nd. We though he would get the top stage after his second perfectly perfect run but still judges picked Matthew Phillipi' style.
Check the report right here. Enjoy.
