This year we invited four filmers to join the quest of the Nine Queens. Each filmer was teamed up with three of the riders and had all week to submit an edit by Saturday evening. The filmers were assigned with the task to capture a “typical week” in the lives of our Queens and the judges around Nine Knights MTB host Andi Wittmann looked for creativity, editing, choice of music, and action. The submission will be released one after another for the next week, so check out our first one, stay tuned and enjoy the show!

The Schneestern crew could nearly finish the last bits yesterday…check out some impression, while the queens are all arriving in Fiss for the big kick off starting tomorrow!
Enjoy the impressions:
I can tell you guys..It´s so much fun here!!!
… Nico Zacek tested our Suzuki NINE QUEENS castle today!
I can tell you, his smile went from Fiss till the other side of Ladis…
He was more than stoked about his first tries and now we´re even more confident, that the Nine Queens will have a pretty nice time here in Fiss.
Another blue bird up the mountain and the Suzuki NINE QUEENS castle is almost ready to go!
The guys from Schneestern and the helpers from Serfaus.Fiss.Ladis are working hard to be ready in time!
Enjoy the pics below…
Welcome to the Suzuki NINE QUEENS countdown!
With still 7 days to go, we proudly present you, what the Schneestern crew created so far. Pretty sick I’d say!!
The Nine Queens crew arrived in Fiss today and went straight up the mountain to see how the castle is progressing…
Thanks to the one and only Schneestern crew, as every year, you are creating an outstanding snow construction!
The Suzuki Nine Queens “WANNA BE A QUEEN” online video competition has been a major success and another little step to progress the sport of women freeskiing. We received 24 submissions from established pros to new up and coming shredders. The level of riding was incredibly high across the board. All the videos were watched and evaluated by the pre-qualified Queens and choosing the winners proved to be very difficult.
After much discussion amongst the Queens a unanimous decision was reached on who will have the honor to conquer the “Chateaux” for 2012.
So without further ado, the three qualified riders are:
1. Lisa Zimmermann:
This up and comer from Germany was very much a surprise for all the judges. Seemingly coming out of nowhere, the fifteen year-old impressed the judges with an almost flawless 1080 tail grab, amongst other banger tricks in her video. “It is a dream come true to be invited” Lisa said, the German freeski scene is stoked and we can’t wait to see what she has in store for us at the event.
