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 Suzuki Nine Royals will be a unique media event. It will bring together some of the world’s best freeskiers and snowboarders, as well as, photographers and film makers, for a week long super session that offers extraordinary shooting and riding options.
The aim is to document the athletes in a fun, creative and pressure free environment, an ideal setting for progression. Together, they create breathtaking images and footage often at sunrise and sunset, sometimes from the helicopter. The public highlight is the Big Air competition.
The iconic Suzuki Nine Knights & Suzuki Nine Queens events have grown exponentially every year; more features and athletes presenting spectacular performances at every event, making a combined event structure the next logical step.
