When freestyle is colored with contemporary art
The Nines, Red Bull and the best mountain freestylers have created a one-of-a-kind performance in Crans-Montana
The whirling imaginations of the Red Bull creative apparatus and The Nines platform, a freestyle paradise in all its potential forms, have come together to create a vibrant visual project.
The white snows of the famous Swiss resort town of Crans-Montana are painted in these adrenaline-pumping images with colorful smoke bombs: unusual brushes wielded by the world’s best freestylers. The result of this artistic-sports installation is a lively alpine festival, an orderly kaleidoscope of tricks and colors.
The riders who alternate between bumps and smoky swirls are Valentino Guseli, Nico Vuignier, Jesper Tjäder, Jennie Lee Burmasson, Fabi Bösch, Hailey Langland, Mac Forehand, Luke Winkelman, Matej Svancer, Thibault Magnin, Fridtjof Tischendorf, Max Moffat, Hiroto Ogiwara, Kaito Hamada, Kim Gubser, Lukas Muelleauer, Moritz Boll, Niek van der Velden, Alex Hall, Andri Ragettli, Kirsty Muir, Mia Brookes, Yuka Fujimori, Pat Burgener and Taylor Brooke Lundquist: basically the elite of international snow and ski freestyle.
Their performances have been captured both by drone videos and by the photographic lenses of Theo Acworth and Florian Breitenberger. Enjoy.
