Suzuki Nine Knights ready for another epic year with some of the world’s best skiers and snowboarders
The immense snow castle with its three take-offs and skate-ramp on Mottolino Fun Mountain in Livigno, Italy is crawling with shapers and snowcats, who are perfecting every angle of the infamous setup for the Suzuki Nine Knights 2015. With snowboarders at the event for first time the stacked riders list is now complete with Wild Card winners, who will join the event running from the 5th to the 10th of April at Mottolino Fun Mountain in Livigno, Italy.
During the week the skiers and snowboarders will partake in various photo and film shoots exploring the many options of the castle. With four new tricks documented by the ladies at the Suzuki Nine Queens in Austria a few weeks prior, it remains to be seen what the men will get up to. Friday 10th of April the Big Air Contest will see the knights compete one against another and Wednesday 8th of April will see the Public Night Shoot put on a showdown open for public.
