Toyota One Hit Wonder Mountain Festival 2017: The world’s best skiing, snowboarding, après and air time!

The Toyota One Hit Wonder Mountain Festival is taking over Thredbo again from Tuesday the 5th of September through to Saturday the 9th and is set to be one huge week of high flying action! This year, snowboarding has been thrown back into the mix, allowing for the world’s best to push the benchmark of what’s possible to pull off in the air…we can’t wait.

The Toyota One Hit Wonder Mountain Festival boasts the biggest jump in the Southern Hemisphere, averaging at just over 100ft, the world’s best skiers and snowboarders put their skills to the test and bodies on the line, as they battle it out for their chance at the $20k prize purse that’s up for grabs. With the winter Olympics just around the corner, athletes will be pushing the limits on this year’s jump to put them at the forefront of skiing and snowboarding progression.

The competition side of the event consists of a big air session for both skiers and snowboarders followed by a newly introduced challenge, The GoPro Team Challenge. Each randomly drawn team of pro skiers and snowboarders will be handed a bag of GoPro cameras and mounts with 24 hours to session the jump to their heart’s content and upload a 60 second clip. All the clips will be published online and then it’s up to the public to vote for their favourite clip, ultimately deciding the One Hit Wonder GoPro Challenge winners.

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.

The athletes however aren’t in the air  for the entire week, they, just like the rest of us, like to indulge in post event celebrations and après, so Thredbo’s putting on some huge live concerts and entertainment to accompany the high flying action. On Wednesday the 6th of September in the Keller Bar, Thredbo is throwing a Full Moon Party for all guests, spectators and athletes to enjoy…get ready to howl under the moon! Following the final day of competition on Saturday the 9th of September, First Base is putting on a party at Poolside to keep the good times going. Enjoy your afternoon après with help from Hugo Gruzman (Flight Facilities), Tom Tilley (Triple J) and Luke Million as they play sweet tunes into the night. Following on from First Base at 6pm is the final Heineken Village Concert Series, make sure you save some energy for this one, as Strange Associates, Panama and Winston Surfshit take over the village for some spring après celebrations.

Some race to win, some for the experience and some to tick it off their snow bucket list but the exhilaration and free champagne at the finish make it a must do.

The race starts as the sun peeks over the horizon to allow competitors to use the full width and length of the Supertrail. Riders line up at the top of the 3.2 kilometre course with their skis and boards in hand and run to launch line where they strap and click in for a fast-paced blast to the bottom. This is where the battle begins as riders head to the village below, dropping 600 vertical metres navigating, gates, straights and other racers – it’s adrenalin packed action.

The event draws everyday heroes as well as past and current Olympians including Scott Kneller and Thredbo snow ambassador, Torah Bright, who will both be competing in this year’s race. Top2Bottom features seven categories including pro, women’s, amateur and veterans.

Winston Surfshirt & Panama: September 9

What a way to swing into spring with Winston Surfshirt and Panama playing up a storm in the Village Square wrapping up the Thredbo Heineken Series.

The six piece Winston Surfshirt’s unmistakable sound is a unique blend of soul and hip hop  – they say it is the auditory equivalent of A Tribe Called Quest splitting spliffs with your parent’s favourite band.

Over the past few years, Winston Surfshirt have become vital members of Sydney’s underground live scene, with past performances ranging from sold out headline shows to festival appearances, warehouse gigs and block parties. In 2016 Winston teamed up with label buddies Polographia providing the buttery vocals for their triple j and Majestic Casual approved track “Sly”. 

 They have turned it up a notch in their recently released their new single “Ali D”, the new sound will be winning crowds over everywhere in coming months and in Thredbo come September.

Popular five piece band Panama round out a solid double up of bands, with the distinct sounds of lead singer Jarrah McCleary sure to impress the Thredbo crowds.

  • Transfer Banked Slalom featuring Client Liaison: August 19

They call it the days of days for snowboarders, etched from history the Transfer Banked Slalom in Thredbo has carved itself into a highlight of the Australian winter.

The event embodies the very essence of snowboarding, with the Thredbo event bringing together the snowboard community – the old shredders showing the young guns old school moves while the fit and fearless float effortlessly through the carefully crafted course.

Consisting of berms, turns and jumps riders need to bring their A game to manoeuvre the technical but fun course to cross the line.  Features such as Galina’s Gully, a sweeping section, natural half pipe and a wall ride are sure to test riders on the day.  If there any tip to offer to get you over the line with a chance…wax that board and hold on.

The good times don’t stop on your last turn, Saturday night head to Poolside at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel where Client Liaison fresh off a sold out national tour will take over the party. From the studio to the top end of town, Client Liaison’s sound plays out like a long lunch followed by a round of cocktails, a definite Thredbo crowd favourite.

The Transfer Banked Slalom is one event the guys at the establishment will never be able to get their hands on, so leave the competitive hunger at home and replace it with an 80’s inspired après outfit and a big smile.

So what do you need to do now in order of priority to attend the Transfer Banked Slalom?

Lock in the date 19th of August

Book your trip and enter via the Thredbo eStore

Put in your leave form

Practice your turns

Go op-shopping to grab an outfit

Prep yourself for a weekend of fun

Hi All,

Our favourite season is here!  And to help celebrate and get everyone stoked for a big winter ahead we have just released the 3rd instalment of our Thredbo, 60 years of stoke series….The Next Generation…with Torah Bright.

In this video we take a look at Thredbo in the 90s/2000s/Today through the eyes of Thredbo Ambassador and Olympic Gold Medallist Torah Bright. Torah takes us on her journey from her first days on snow at Friday Flat, to winning Olympic Gold and now inspiring the next generation.

Watch as Torah throws back to the early 90’s where snowboard legend Terje Haakonsen competed at the Coke Classic alongside Thredbo locals, how the Olympic torch made its way through Thredbo for the 2000 Sydney Olympics and how Torah now shares her love of snowboarding and Thredbo with her family, friends and future generations.
