Over a few days, during 22nd February 25th of February, 2011 this elite Italian snowboard competition ran two formats; slopestyle and big air.

Due to high winds that came in during the first qualification round the organizers made the decision to close the big air, and re-run the qualifications using only the " burn river jump" and the end jib section. As the course changed significantly the new format saw a 4Star TTR status. 16 riders battled it out for a place in the four man super final. The nail biting two-run knock out super final saw Norwegian duo Alexander Ostreng and Ulrik Badertscher, who both had made their way all the way from the qualifying rounds, go head to head, while Jamie Nicholls and Eric Willet battled each other. In the end it was Alexander and Eric who made it through to the final round.
