This is one of the best looking jumps that I've ever seen. The architect/designer of this has my vote! Truly a great feature and some killer skiing going on. Peep the whole story plus a little video on newschoolers. Image ripped right off the newschoolers site. Photos by Christoph Schoech
The guys at VirtualTour.at have produced this ingenious tool for everyone to virtually visit the Suzuki Nine Queens snow chateau. Get transported to Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis in Austria and get the aerial view or climb up to one of the towers and glare down the castle moat to really get the feeling of how truly immense the feature really is.
The week of Suzuki Nine Knights is all about documenting the insane action of some of the world’s best riders. One of the most interesting angles to get some perspective of the massive course is from the GoPro’s attached to helmets, shoes, poles etc... Filmed 100% with GoPro at the 2015 edition at Mottolino Fun Mountain in Livigno, Italy, this edit features some gnarly shots from the cams of snowboarders like Sage Kotsenburg (USA), Halldor Helgasson (ISL) and Kevin Backström (SWE) as well as skiers such as David Wise (USA), Jesper Tjäder (SWE) and Oystein Braaten (NOR).

Last year’s edition saw snowboarder Peetu Piiroinen (FIN) threatening the current height record and skiers David Wise (USA) and Joffrey Pollet-Villard easily shoot above the hip and the 9m tall axe stomping trick after trick. The Suzuki Nine Knights 2016 sets out on a mission to build “The Perfect Hip” and bring along the best transition riders to hone in on innovating hip and transition riding. The new event location in Watles, South Tyrol, Italy will see various sessions running from the 29th of March, leading up to the Public Contest Day on Saturday the 2nd of April 2016.
