 Final Call for Auditions – 2011 Toyota One Hit Wonder Down Under

Skiers have just a few days left to submit their audition for the chance to compete with the likes of Salomon team rider Bobby Brown in Australia’s most watched skiing big-air competition, the Toyota One Hit Wonder Down Under event.

To be part of the 2011 Toyota One Hit Wonder Down Under Event, skiers must either email a downloadable high-quality video link (such as to or upload it to themselves and email the link to by the 20th of August.

The 16 selected finalists will compete at Thredbo Resort from the 6th – 10th of September on the Charles Beckinsale built monster feature which is currently taking shape above Thredbo’s Cruiser chairlift.
This is a totally unique big-air skiing event whereby you, the people, decide the winner. “A format that is unrivalled worldwide, probably, except by ‘Idol’” says Event Director, Tim Myers. After the finalists have gone head to head in the monster jump, a virtual grandstand, made up of anyone connected to the Internet, will then have three weeks to vote online at for their single favorite big-air trick to take home $10,000, the biggest first place prize on the Australian events calendar.
Each member of the public who votes will also go into the draw to win the ‘Ultimate Winter Package’ worth over $10,000. This includes an all-expenses-paid holiday for two to Hakuba Japan, staying at the luxurious Phoenix Hotel, a complete Salomon ski or snowboard package, Von Zipper eyewear, plus a GE DV1 HD Waterproof & Shockproof Video Camera to film the trip.
As well as the people’s choice champion, the athletes themselves will vote at the end of the week to decide the NIXON peer performance award, who will take home a $659.95 NIXON 51-30 watch, to be awarded at the Thredbo Village after party on the 10th of September.
