For the past ten years, the Carnival Snowboard Session has brought snow, snowboarders and an avalanche of fun to downtown Rijeka. This year is the event’s 10th anniversary and it will feature participants from the whole region and beyond. This year, the organizers of CSS have joined forces with Avalanche Risk City Jam, (a team in charge of a similar competition held in Novi Sad). As a result of this cooperation a joint trophy will be awarded to the overall winner of both of these two city competitions.
100 cubic metres of snow will be hauled in by a semi-trailer truck specially for the event. Apart from promoting snowboarding, the organizers also want Rijeka to offer its residents and visitors a chance to experience a different kind of winter. In this case it means giving the general public the opportunity to try out the snowboard piste right beside the sea. Not only will you be able to enjoy the stunts of top class snowboarders on Sunday, 4 February, but you can also hang out at the 3rd annual Carnival Snowboard Film Festival, a fringe event that starts at 8 pm on Friday, February 2nd, at the Youth Cultural Centre Palach, where screenings of amateur snowboarding films will be held.
