Crowds of people gathered to watch as the third day rolled in at the Suzuki Nine Queens presented by O’Neill, at Mottolino Fun Mountain, Livigno. The girls were stepping it up making the most of the great conditions and in preparation for the big air contest!
The second day of the Suzuki Nine Queens presented by O’Neill started with a happy surprise as bluebird conditions met the riders heading up to “il Castello” on Mottolino Fun Mountain. Throughout the day the freeskiers and snowboarders rode side by side sessioning one feature after the other. Check out the 100% GoPro Moment video with freeskier Emma Dahlström from Sweden was going big with a super stylish cork 720 tail grab.
An eager group of freeski and snowboard girls arrived from all corners of the globe to the huge snow castle for the first day of the Suzuki Nine Queens presented by O’Neill. The event has now officially kicked off with the girls testing out the many different obstacles of the “il Castello” at Mottolino Fun Mountain. Take a look at the fun GoPro Course Check Video with Emma Dahlström (SWE), Keri Herman (USA), Katie Summerhayes (GBR), Rebecca Torr (NZL) and Kjersti Ostgaard-Buaas (NOR).
The Wanna be a Queen Online Video Contest is over and the 5 winners have been invited to join the Suzuki Nine Queens presented by O’Neill in Livigno, Italy from March 26th to 30th 2014. Heading to the chateau will be freeskiers Jamie Crane-Mauzy (USA), Julia Krass (USA) and Zuzana Stromková (SVK). Among the snowboard ladies Christy Prior (NZL) and Klaudia Medlova (SVK) stood out to the jury. Congratulations ladies!! Meanwhile final preparations are taking place for the big welcome of the queens next week. Check out the winners’ edits!
Many female Freeski and Snowboard pros will be digging out their Italian dictionaries, or at least downloading a translation app, because in two weeks time – from March 26th to 30th – Livigno, Italy will be hosting some of the best female shredders in the game. The preparations for the Suzuki Nine Knights are in full swing, making the last-minute shift of the ladies’ event to Livigno possible. On site the shapers of Schneestern are working flat out to build the most eclectic feature of all time. Read more and check out the complete riders list!
The Nine Queens presented by O’Neill will happen two weeks later than originally planned from March 26th - 30th and will move to Livigno/ITA! Due to prevalent föhn winds and unnaturally warm temperatures over the last weeks, the snow machines in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis were unfortunately unable to produce enough snow in the newly established valley venue of the legendary fairytale castle. Moving the event to Livigno has ensured that the event will still take place in the most epic way possible!
…and the game is on! Thank you Urska Pribosic for the very first Wanna be a Queen submission in 2014!
Best of luck to all the girls! We’d love to welcome all of you but we can pick only few. Stay tuned for further submissions and don’t miss the action on March 14th in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis.
