3D Designs and wild cards/complete riders list revealed for Suzuki Nine Knights 2015

Serious work in progress!

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.


The “Wanna Be A Knight” online video competition winner Simon Gruber (ITA) will be joining the knights at the castle along with winners of the Mottolino Open. The Mottolino Snowpark hosted the qualifying slopestyle event, “The Mottolino Open” on the impeccably shaped XL line of the huge park. Marco Donzelli (ITA) came out on top of the pack and earned himself a coveted invite to the Suzuki Nine Knights.
