Method Mag Snowboard Recap - Swatch Nines '23

The other week we headed to Schilthorn Piz Gloria in the beautiful Swiss Alps to be let loose on the 2023 Swatch Nines mega creation. It was without a doubt a next level set up of epic proportions with the multi tiered kickers at the top that rolled into a fast flowing middle section and finished with by far our favourite area which include a skate bowl in the centre surrounded by a multitude of features that could be hit in endless ways. It's fair to say we spend a week with the riders there attempting to tick off every way possible the features could be ridden. 

We brought along with us, probably not your first guess at classic Nines rider, Jake and Joe Simpson aka The Simpson Brothers. But they weren't they just to send it on the set up, they brought their video cams and set out to film our very own snowboard recap edit done their own way. Enjoy!

Featuring Taiga Hasegawa, Patrick Hofmann, Moritz Thönen, Moritz Boll, Mia Brookes, Leon Vockensperger, Laurie Blouin, Juho Laine, Kuba Hrones, Hiroto Ogiwara, Fridtjof Tischendorf, Eseniya Stepanova, Emeraude Maheux, Anna Gasser, Annika Morgan, Chaeun Lee, Clemens Millauer, Cool Wakushima, Jay Rawe plus skaters Andy Anderson, Madars Apse and Mami Tezuka.
