Toyota One Hit Wonder Mountain Festival
Tuesday 5 - Monday 11 Sep, 2017
Home to Thredbo, the Toyota One Hit Wonder Mountain Festival is back again, kicking off on Tuesday the 5th of September through to Saturday the 9th. Check out the biggest jump in the Southern Hemisphere as the worlds best skiers and snowboarders in the world perform unimaginable stunts for their chance at the huge 20k prize purse.
Thanks to our longtime partner Toyota doubling the prize pool for the event, both skiers and boarders will be vying for $10k each in two separately judged world tour level Big Air competitions, before mixing it together in randomly drawn teams for the fun and frivolity of the athletes GoPro Challenge. This year the GoPro Challenge will see each team handed a bag of GoPro cameras & mounts and given 24hrs to session the jump, edit and upload their finest 60 second segments where the public will have a hand in deciding the winning clip.
Although now in its ninth year running, snowboarders haven’t officially competed in the Toyota One Hit Wonder Big Air since 2010. “In a time when competition is often criticized for producing podium runs that are barely distinguishable between one another, it’s an incredible feat for Australia to now have one of the only snowboard events with a jump big enough to actually push the global benchmark of Big Air tricks.” -Richard Hegarty, Snowboard Director.
“We are very excited to build a jump feature that caters for both disciplines. It’s twice as much fun for both the riders and the crowd having everyone up at the top of Thredbo in perfect Spring conditions showcasing what the world’s best can do, especially ahead of an Olympic season.” -Timothy Myers, Media Director.
The best thing about this years One Hit Wonder is that it’s an insight into what we could expect to see from the South Korean stadium-based Olympics next February.
To accompany all the high flying action, Thredbo’s putting on a handful of live music and entertainment for all guests and spectators to enjoy. This is going to be one week of on and off the mountain celebrations you don’t want to miss out on!
