Watch in Obergurgl and Sölden

The ‘Audi Nines’ kicks off with a Night Shoot on Wednesday 15 April near Obergurgl, which is open for the public to watch.

The actual Contest Day is Saturday 18 April and takes place in Sölden.

Athletes Take the Lead in Course Design

The course has been designed by the athletes themselves. At a brainstorming session in Innsbruck, Austria, the freestyle athletes came up with their own ideas for outstanding course design.

“The venues in Sölden and Obergurgl are setting new standards for design in snow,” said ‘Audi Nines’ founder Nico Zacek.

“Expect to see incredible action in Big Air and Slopestyle-influenced settings, as well as pioneering new features, like ‘The Wormhole,’ that will simply challenge your understanding of physics.”

Turning daydreams into reality

Austrian rider Clemens Millauer reckons the ‘Audi Nines’ means you can turn “daydreams into reality” and your “doodles into your riding playground.”

British rider James ‘Woodsy’ Woods believes the ‘Audi Nines’ is “just in another league”.

“It’s why we all got into skiing and snowboarding,” said Woodsy. “There is so much opportunity to get banging content for the rest of the season.”
