2015 Event Announced
The One Hit Wonder Mountain Festival returns to Thredbo from the 8th-12th of September 2015 and will once again boast some of the world's best big air riders and a great line-up of music.
The centrepiece of the week is the Toyota Big Air, with skiers going head to head on the 100ft jump in front of a panel of judges. The stakes are high with the largest cash pool in Australian freeskiing up for grabs and all important AFP (Association of Freeskiing Professionals) World Tour points from the first Gold event on the 2016 season calendar.
The Big Air is the biggest jump found this side of the equator and combined with a swag of international professional big air skiers, this event is definitely a crowd favourite.
Last years winner Elias Ambühl of Switzerland will return to defend his title against an all-star international line-up, including the likes of James "Woodsy" Woods (GBR), Oscar Wester (SWE), Jesper Tjäder (SWE) and Jeremy Pancras (FRA). Australia's home grown talent won't be taking a back seat to the action with Olympian Russ Henshaw and crowd favourite Jesse Houghton also set to return to Thredbo Alpine Resort.
James "Woodsy" Woods finds his tail over the transfer in 2014.
The popular "Game Show" that debuted last year will again return as a team event, requiring athletes to pair up and work together to complete each set of tricks. Event director Andreas Gloor says that the emphasis for the Game Show be on style, giving the athletes a small break from technical competition "...although psych-outs and nudity will be favoured amongst the judging panel."
The Toyota One Hit Wonder Big Air requires a huge amount of effort from Thredbo Parks.
The Thredbo Village Square will then play host to some serious free live entertainment over the weekend with Melbourne band, ALPINE headlining the official after-party on Saturday evening.
With significant snowfalls over the past few weeks, Thredbo's terrain park crew, managed by Reuben Cameron now have a blank canvas to begin construction on the over-sized jump feature which will loom above Cruiser chairlift. With uniquely incredible alpine views of Thredbo Valley serving as a bacck drop to the best skiers in the world unleashing a barrage of high-risk, high-reward acrobatics, the free-to-watch big air is a gret place to soak in some action.
Alex Brown (USA), troubleshoots some mid-air decisions.
