On Sunday the 24th of July at 1pm Aust-wide / 2pm in Melbourne, the Nine Network will feature a special, 60 minute, presentation of the Toyota ‘One Hit Wonder Down Under’ event and the subsequent overseas winter seasons had by Australia’s best skiers and snowboarders.
Viewers will get a taste for the incredible progression of the events’ elite competitors, as international ski superstar Bobby Brown, Kiwi Byron Wells, and current contender on the world stage, McRae Williams, throw down at Thredbo Resort alongside Australia’s own Charlie Timmins, Ryan Tiene, Jordan Houghton and Billabong rider, Robbie Walker.
The program then embarks on a powder-fuelled international journey, following Australia’s most hardcore snow riders. Through high definition camera angles and follow-cam shots, witness their dedication and passion for the art of sliding on white stuff.
• Australian professional snowboarder, Clint Allan, ponders one of life’s difficult questions – Heli vs Cat snowboarding in British Columbia, Canada;
• Australia’s best terrain park builder and pro snowboarder, Charles Beckinsale rips through Whistler’s terrain park, which he built;
• Ex World Cup Champion & three time Olympian, Steve Lee, returns to the land of the rising sun, Japan, where he rose to World Cup glory with his now ripping daughter in tow;
• Australia’s fastest skiers Jono Brauer, and Craig Branch, retire from competition after the Vancouver Olympics and treat themselves to a bigger challenge – Alaska;
• Warren Miller athlete and Sydney-based freestyle skier, Chris Booth, joins forces with distinguished cameraman Rob Norman and collides with big mountains and even bigger personalities across the globe - from Mt Cook's Aoraki region to The People's Republic of Macedonia; and
• Winter X Games gold medalist and current slope-style world Champion, Anna Segal, shows off her prowess as Melbourne’s hardened princess on the international contest circuit, jaunting across Europe and the Americas with the likes of Jindabyne wunderkind Russ Henshaw.
The visually spectacular high definition footage has produced an international standard of cinematography that sets the One Hit Wonder event apart from anything the Australian Snowy Mountains has seen before.
