New Zealand’s Treble Cone is set to challenge skiers and boarders to three events in one day to crown the all-around Kings and Queens of the mountain on Saturday, September 11.
The day kicks off with the POW Banked Slalom in the Saddle Basin with a course designed to test speed and precision of the athletes. There’s likely to be some spills and thrills as the competitors jostle for the top placings. This is followed by the Bern Expression Session testing the skiers and boarders and their creativity over a section of natural terrain.
The afternoon event shifts the focus to the Saddle Air for the Rossignol Big Air competition with athletes expected to go all out with their best air moves. The action combined with music, MC’s and the spectacular Treble Cone backdrop is guaranteed to wow the spectators.
All skiers and boarders, male and female, will compete on the same courses and on the same Big Air jump. The best run or score for each event will count.
There is a $2000 prize pool of cash and product. Prize giving will be held off the mountain, 7 p.m. at the Mint Bar in Wanaka with the after party to follow.
The event is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. with the Big Air from 12.30pm. Entries may be limited; it is recommended entrants register online to avoid disappointment. Space permitting registration will also be taken on the day of the event between 8-9:30 a.m.
