Update from Nine Knights presented by Almdudler

As you know fellow Skiunion editor, Pally Learmond is currently at Nine Knights, and will be bringing you a run down of all the action next week. In the meantime here’s a few shots sent over from Nico Zacek, and a filler on what’s been going down so far…

Successful halftime at the medieval freeski showdown:

Flying high above the battlements

Its evening in Oberstdorf, and the last shafts of sunlight graze the distinctive lines of the castle, and the initiator of all this, Nico Zacek is happy and proud at the same time…so he should be!!  During the last two days the international freeski elite invited to this event have killed it in two sunrise and two sunset sessions.

 Stef Cande (FRA) one of the Nine Knights photographers up there says: “With such an amazing obstacle, it’s so much fun to search for more and even better angles to shoot from.”

Sliding the ramparts

Nico`s conclusion so far: “During the last two days there was so much adrenalin floating through every participants veins that by now I`m really pleased about the progress of Nine Knights presented by Almdudler. I`m really looking forward for the contest on Saturday, the 18th of April. This is when we again can finally show all the people live and in colour what the Nebenhorn, my castle, the freeski elite and the worlds top photographers, have to offer. You definitley don’t want to miss it!

The set up this year has proved very popular
