Since its inception, the Suzuki Nine Knights & Queens events have served as a platform enabling the best freeskiers—and eventually snowboarders—to develop and capture their most creative and technical riding. In the spring of 2017 the Knights and Queens will unite for the very first time in picturesque Watles, South Tyrol in Italy, to form the Suzuki Nine Royals. The invited female and male professional athletes will progress themselves and their sports on a huge snow castle for a week of photo and film shoots, beginning on the 27th of March and culminating with the Public Contest day on April 1st, 2017.
