American skier Nicky Keefer, who was voted both Ruler of the Week and Best Style at last year's Nine Knights event, tosses a D-spin 720 blunt grab while warming up for the helicopter shoot later in the evening. "Along with the new level of the feature, there's a new level of difficulty and standard of tricks," said Keefer. "Maybe I can hang on to Best Style this year, but Ruler of the Week is probably out of my reach."
