After a week of freestyle skiing and snowboarding at Sölden's superpark, Audi Nines 2019 has come to a close. Chock full of big air, style, and progression, this year's Nines was one to remember. The less-structured Jam Session provided a venue for David Wise to set a world record for highest quarterpipe air to a banked landing. Andri Ragettli also managed to land a quad-cork 1980, putting us only 40 degrees away from the elusive futurespin.
On the competition front, Elias Syrjä managed to win it all with a series of mind-bending tricks, including a a switch-dub 900 with a nose grab that he held until after he landed. Pretty impressive considering that he was a last-minute invitation, winning the "Become a Nine" contest to land himself a spot in the competition.
