After a three-year pandemic pause, Swatch Nines is glad to finally welcome the public back for onsite spectating in 2023. On Saturday, the 22nd of April, the Public Day welcomes all comers for a day of unforgettable action. A Schilthorn-Piz Gloria ski pass (available at https://shop.schilthorn.ch/skipaesse) is all that’s needed to watch the Nines in person. The action starts at 11:00 am and continues throughout the day. The venue is accessible only with skis or snowboard (no foot traffic).
Together with the Nines crew, Red Bull has documented the design process of the park. Watch as athletes like Max Moffatt, Fridtjof “Fridge” Tischendorf, Olivia Asselin, and Jesper Tjäder convene at Nines headquarters in Innsbruck, Austria, to help plan this year’s venue.
The video illuminates the design process behind the most creative and visually spectacular setup in snow sports. Months before the first rider drops in, the Nines team—in close coordination with leading snowpark builders and athletes—is hard at work conceptualizing the setup.
