A few rules and things to know about:

  • A maximum of two (2) winners will be selected in the Become A Nine x Downdays contest: one male skier and one female skier.
  • Submissions will be accepted until 11:59pm on Sunday, 22 March.
  • The winners will be announced on Friday, 29 March.
  • Don’t add any music to your edit. Raw skiing shots only please!
  • Editing isn’t important. We just want to see your skiing ability.
  • Since this year’s Swatch Nines is all about the Perfect Hip, we want to see that you can GO BIG. You don’t have to have the biggest trick bag ever, but you should demonstrate that you can handle big features comfortably and confidently. Showing your ability to ride transitions, like hips and halfpipes, will help you gain an edge on the competition.
  • By submitting your video, you grant both Downdays and Swatch Nines the right to use your video footage, in part or in whole, on their respective social media channels, including but not limited to Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Tiktok.
  • The winners will receive an invitation to participate in the 2024 Swatch Nines event in Schilthorn, Switzerland. This invitation includes accommodation and full board throughout the event. It DOES NOT include your travel expenses to and from the event. We can consult you on making your travel plans, but you’ll need to cover the costs yourself.

Got a question? Hit us up at ba9@downdays.eu.

Good luck, we’re stoked to see your submissions!
