International freeskiing sensation, Bobby Brown, will give Aussie riders a run for their money when he comes to Thredbo for the Toyota One Hit Wonder Down Under competition, this September 14th – 18th.

As a supporter of the Toyota One Hit Wonder, Salomon were invited to put forward one of their team riders to compete in Australia’s most watched skiing and snowboarding big-air event. They’ve nominated Brown, the 18 year-old from Colorado, who in one short season, has gone from a promising freshman to the man to beat in big-air competition. Earlier this year he made history when he became the first to win two events (slopestyle and big-air) in the Aspen Winter X Games. “I’m pumped to be heading Down Under! I can’t think of a better way to spend my off-season than Thredbo in the spring-time," says Brown.

Brown will be competing alongside other hand-picked big-name Australian and international riders aiming to secure the best ‘one-hit’ in front of the cameras. “Having an international pro of Brown’s caliber in our mountains is a first for Australia and no doubt will push our own athletes out of their comfort zone." Comments editor of Powderhound magazine, Christie Dowling; “The Powderhound lenses will be front-row to capture the spectacle."

Each finalists best ‘one-hit’ from the event is filmed and uploaded to, where Australians have until the 10th October to vote and decide which Toyota One Hit Wonder skier and snowboarder will share in a $10,000 prize pool. Voters also go into the draw to win the ‘Ultimate Winter Package’. This includes an all-expenses-paid holiday to Niseko Japan for two valued at $6,200, thanks to DEEP POWDER TOURS Ski Holidays, plus a complete Salomon ski and snowboard equipment package valued at $3,800.
