A glance back at Suzuki Nine Queens
The 6th edition of the event will again push the boundaries of snow construction with a multifaceted feature boasting massive kickers, rails and tunnels. The fun and pressure- free environment sets out push the progression of the sport and in past events many personal firsts, as well as world first tricks have been seen. In 2015 young Klaudia Medlova (SVK, snb) turned heads by stomping a backside double rodeo 900 and Jamie Anderson (USA, snb) landed her first Frontside 1080. In 2014 Lisa Zimmermann nailed a world first double cork 1260 in competition while in 2011 Kaya Turski (CAN, ski) landed a world premiere Switch 1080 preformed by a female. Lets see what’s in store for 2016!
Part of the event series is also Suzuki Nine Knights for the male skiers and snowboarders. This year something new is being concocted, so stay tuned for more information in the New Year.
