Unfortunately due to bad conditions, the freestyle day of the World Heli Challenge was canceled. The plan was to have our 2 judged freestyle runs on the backside of Mt. Albert. We did get to ski the backside of Mt. Albert but as we flew over the venue there was a class 2 avi that had just occurred. Conditions weren’t the best but we still managed to have a fun day in the mountains with all the athletes.

A sweet kicker was built and everyone was able to session it until some high cloud came in and it was time to leave. Today was a weather day and we are on hold for the Big Mountain Xtreme day.

So today was a pipe training day!!! Volkl NZ Freeski Open starts tomorrow with the qualifiers for the Slopestyle. Finals for slopestyle are on Friday and Half Pipe finals is on Saturday. Only 2 days of pipe training left!

Keep you posted. In the mean time check out the photos
