The Toyota One Hit Wonder Down Under, a week-long ski and snowboarding big-air event in Thredbo, Australia, wrapped up this weekend and the voting is now open. You can vote for your favorite one-hit trick to decide who will be crowned the 2010 Toyota One Hit Wonder Down Under ski and snowboard champions. (Bonus: If you vote, your name will go into a drawing to win an all-expenses paid trip to Niseko, Japan, and a Salomon ski and snowboard setup.)
On the first day of the contest, the athletes took to the custom 90-foot big air jump under sunny skies. American McRae Williams threw a switch double-cork 1260 with a mute grab and two-time X Games champion Bobby Brown showed off a switch double misty 1260 with a high mute grab. New Zealand's Byron Wells got a personal best by stomping a switch double rodeo 900. Australia's Charlie Timmins stomped a personal best trick for the first time -- a double cork 1080.
"We were stoked to wake up to a bluebird day with no wind," says Bobby Brown, "but our day got even better when we saw the massive 90-foot booter which has been custom built for the event."
